Seven cave explorers set out on a perilous adventure. Soon, their conflicting agendas lead them to conflict. Trapped together 25 hundred feet below the earth's surface, they learn a lesson as old as humankind; knowledge can be the most dangerous discovery of all. The Maw is Taylor Zajonc's best adventure novel to date, set in a rarely-seen environment and providing a thought-provoking theory about the origin of human nature.
Determined to make the most of his second chance, Milo joins the team and begins a harrowing descent into one of Earth's last secrets: a dangerous, pitch-black realm of twisting passages and ancient fossils nearly two thousand feet underground. But when a storm hits the surface base camp, stranding the cavers and washing away supplies, all communication to the outside world is lost. As the remaining resources dwindle and members of the team begin to exhibit strange and terrifying abilities, Milo must brave the encroaching darkness to unearth the truth behind DeWar's fascination with the deep--and why he never left.
Taylor Zajonc's real-life adventures as a maritime historian and deep-sea shipwreck expert nearly exceed those of his fictional counterparts. Beyond his record-setting submersible dive to a three-mile-deep archaeological site located in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle, Taylor has contributed research and methodology for some of the most fascinating shipwreck finds of the past decade. His previous novels include The Wrecking Crew and Red Sun Rogue. Taylor lives in Portland, Oregon.
