Jaws (Paperback)

Peter Benchley


We've all seen the Oscar-winning movie from legendary film director Steven Speilberg but there are many people our there who have not experienced the terror of the book Jaws, Peter Benchley's 1974 literary debut.

It has always been safe to go in the water in the seaside town of Amity. But one night, a young tourist steps foot into the open waters and is never seen alive again. When her body is found washed up on the beach, it is clear that she had been attacked by a great white shark. New-in-town police chief Martin Brody orders Amity's beaches close, but is overruled by the town's mayor and selectmen, who fear this will damage the summer tourism on which the town is heavily dependent. The problem is... the attack isn't to be the last. Chief Brody, along with shark experts Hooper and Quint, must kill the shark before it can kill again!

An international bestseller and must-read book for fans of the film, which stars Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, Peter Benchley's Jaws is terrifying, thrilling, shocking and thoroughly pleasing.
