Summary:
Are sharks developing a taste for human flesh? A rash of shark attacks off Hawaii spurs a team of researchers to track the predators' elusive movements- and the scientists discover some surprising truths about the way sharks kill.

Sharks may not ambush humans too often. But when they do, repeatedly, it can provoke a singular sort of panic. This time it's off the coast of Hawaii: a rash of shark attacks have left three people dead. Is it simply a case of mistaken identity- a surfboard with arms being taken for a sea turtle? Or have the tiger sharks developed a taste for human flesh- and set out, deliberately to hunt people down? Public outcry calls for a shark hunt, but after a controversial fishing frenzy, the culprit is not to be found. Follow a team of researchers who set out to track the movements of these elusive creatures- and discover some surprising truth about the way they kill.

Spy on these predators in action- stalking and snatching up seal pups, albatross chicks, and other unsuspecting prey- and take a shocking seal's-eye view of an attacking shark. Then decide for yourself...if it's safe to go back in the water.
