After reading the novel DEEP BLUE, don’t miss three exciting short stories featuring shark researcher Dr. Grace Mann and her boyfriend, underwater filmmaker Alec Galloway.
DEEP BLUE AUSTRALIA
When Grace accompanies Alec to Western Australia for a commercial shoot with great whites, she envisions relaxing days in the sun and smoldering nights between the sheets. But as Alec’s mood becomes increasingly distant, Grace worries the chemistry they shared—so effortless in the beginning—was starting to fizzle. Is his reticence related to her, or something else? And can she find a way to help him get the footage he needs before his behavior places his life in danger?
DEEP BLUE REUNION ISLAND
Grace joins Alec on a trip to the French island of Réunion. Alec and his team—Dan “Double D” Donovan and Stephie Kim—are documenting the capture and relocation of mature bull sharks from the western coastline. For over ten years, shark attacks have terrorized the people of Réunion, essentially ruining the diving and surfing industry. The relocation program is a last-ditch effort to bring a peaceful coexistence between humans and sharks, but Grace’s resolve is tested as she enters the water with these tenacious predators. Bull sharks didn’t earn their name because they were polite.
DEEP BLUE COCOS ISLAND – Brand New
Grace is invited to participate in a documentary alongside several distinguished female marine scientists, and Alec, Double D, and Stephie come along to film them in the waters off Cocos Island near Costa Rica. Grace is still dealing with recent criticism of the film Alec made of her last year diving with great white sharks, and in the company of such accomplished women, she struggles to keep her insecurities at bay. When differing viewpoints lead to friction, Grace must learn to stand up for herself, but a bright spot emerges when Alec makes a surprise decision about their relationship.
