Storyline

A prehistoric aquatic creature like a huge crocodile appears in a London swimming pool, eats a life guard, then vanishes. Later a special forces diver vanishes, but then the diver's bones turn up in a flooded basement in a town some way to the south west. Nick Cutter predicts that incidents will occur at places on a straight line through these two locations on the map of southern England. Eventually Cutter is allowed to go through an underwater anomaly, tethered by a safety rope a mile long. Finally, amid a prehistoric landscape, he meets his long missing wife. Written by IPH

Goofs

When Helen and Cutter meet in the past, she refers to the anomalies by that name. Since she had been missing presumed dead for fifteen years, there was no way she could have known that technical term which Cutter had created after she disappeared. See more »

Quotes

Professor Nick Cutter: What you should be asking yourself is how the remains of a boy who was attacked in the swimming pool ended up 20 miles away in a reservoir.
James Lester: Maybe there never was an anomaly. Maybe the girl murdered her boyfriend in the swimming pool and dumped his body in the reservoir.
Professor Nick Cutter: Very likely, provided you also believe she swallowed him whole and then drove 20 miles down the motorway to regurgitate his remains.
