Publisher's Summary

There is more in the water than you know.

When ex-astronaut Brock Finlander tries to reconnect with his long-lost daughter, a marine biologist, they discover strange things happening to marine life on Claw Island.

In a rush to identify why the crabs are growing out of control, they find more than they bargained for.

Now, they have only 72 hours before the cover-up becomes dangerous and unstoppable. But danger never expects to run into a man like Brock Finlander. A man who will not just respond, but will attack it with everything he has: His intellect, his military training, and his family.

But when the animals you’re trying to save become the enemy, how do you fight back? 

Together, father and daughter must learn that family comes first before time runs out and they lose each other, and the island, forever.

What they thought they knew about the water was wrong...so very, very, wrong.

If you like thrilling action and heartwarming, endearing characters, you’ll love this coastal action-adventure set in the very center of Maryland’s blue crab population, the Chesapeake Bay, surrounded by NASA, NOAA, the Coast Guard, and the Annapolis Naval Academy.

Fast Paced

Really enjoyed the character development, not something I would usually be interested, but it kept me engaged throughout. I really enjoyed the out of the box story line. Brock Finlander definitely doesn't disappoint, looking forward to Book 2!

Fast-paced action from the get-go.

This novel will keep you glued to your headset. I’ve always enjoyed stories transporting you to the magic of the Eastern Seaboard. Normally, blue crabs will have your mouth watering. I love crabs, but not the one’s you’ll meet in this novel. Great narration that keeps you captivated.

Strong story, characters, and performance

This was a fun read / listen about Brock Finlander, his estranged family, and the curious happenings in the waters of Claw Island.

The story itself is fast-paced, engaging, and exciting. I can’t really go too far into it otherwise I’d give the whole book away, but it’s one that I think most fiction readers will enjoy.

The narration / performance is really well done too. I loved the different voices for the characters .. really helped me keep track of who was who, who was saying what, etc. I’d definitely recommend it.

The flow of the story and its events are in place

I listen to it while I am working out. I enjoyed listening, and I felt the characters' emotions, plus each character developed nicely in the story. The flow of the story and its events are just in place.
Well done! I am looking forward to listening to the next book.

Fast-paced, LOVED it!

First off, the villains in this audiobook were utterly hate-able, and I love when that happens. The heros were such good characters, even the dog! I listened to this at the beach, and couldn't turn it off. I can't wait for the next one. Well done! So much fun.

Fun beach listen

I listen to almost everything outdoors, and I listened to this as I walked down a beach boardwalk. It is a fun listen that reminds me of those old hardy boys books. The protagonist is an older grandpa that is estranged from his family. Soon after he arrives at the island where he grew up, strange things start happening. All of this brings his family back together again. I had a great time listening to the book. The narrator is excellent. There is some language, but it doesn't distract from the listen.

Exciting Book!

I really loved listening to Shadow Claw. It was enjoyable listening to such an amazing narrator was literally on the edge of my seat wanting to just keep listening and listening. The characters developed nicely in the story and made me really connect with each one of them. When you listen to this book you almost feel like your in their shoes! I felt every one of their emotions like pain and anxiety throughout the whole story. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I am looking forward to them and want them now!!

Great book, totally enjoyable!

Let me start off by saying— I do NOT enjoy audio books. I prefer to read the "old-fashioned" way.
Perhaps it's my age, or perhaps it's my "pre-google" brain. But I find that I get too distracted listening, I enjoy being IN the moment and really interacting with the pages.
That all goes out the window with this book.

The narrator's performance is truly riveting...and of course it has to be backed up by great writing and a great story (which it is)

I don't want to give anything away about the book.
Suffice to say: you're gonna enjoy this one!

If you like adventure/mystery/thriller then this is the book for you.
I think this is EJ Foster's first novel, but you'd never know it.
Great flow, excellent story progression—it's got everything you could ask for!

100% the best audio book I've ever listened to!
