(From the publisher):
Loch and his sister are with their father on a scientific expedition to track lake monsters. Their father's boss, Anthony Cavenger, a ruthless publishing mogul, is determined to prove that the legends are fact.
Until now, it has been a fruitless exercise. But suddenly, on a routine exploration, a hideous water beast explodes out of the water, and a photographer, hoping to get the picture of a lifetime, loses his life instead. Without a doubt these plesiosaurs - thought to be extinct for ten million years - are no longer the stuff of legends, and Cavenger will stop at nothing to be the first to obtain proof.
The plesiosaurs terrorize the secluded lake community, but Loch encounters a baby plesiosaur and realizes that the monsters only attack when threatened. So he risks his life - and the lives of his family and friends - to save the prehistoric creatures from destruction.
