About the Author
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.

"A gripping, vivid adventure that will have you clambering in darkness and gasping for air alongside the hero in pursuit of an ultimate underground enlightenment."--Dirk Cussler

"The true test of a thriller is whether you can sleep before the final page. With The Maw, I couldn't!"--John Nance, New York Times bestselling author of Lockout

"In Taylor Zajonc's latest novel, The Maw, 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. This book will remain with you long after the story ends."--Christine Negroni, author of The Crash Detectives: Investigating the World's Most Mysterious Air Disasters

A well-told tale redolent of Jules Verne's immortal classic Journey To The Center Of The Earth. The Maw pulls you in and swallows you whole with a gripping plot that includes the latest, most fascinating scientific discoveries about subterranean life."--Michael Guillen, PhD. Former ABC News science editor and author of The Null Prophecy

"An inventive, dizzily entertaining novel. . . . Suspenseful and exciting, beset with disasters and borne continuously downward by a mystery connected to the origins of human kind."--Wall Street Journal

"Claustrophobic and shocking and suspenseful. Zajonc has built a cast of characters who feel solid and anchored in reality. And that's an especially good thing in a novel that combines elements of fantasy with an adventure thriller. A top-notch genre-blender."--Booklist

"Taylor Zajonc's The Maw is a beach read in the best sense. It zips along at a thrilling pace, with a twist at the end of almost every chapter. . . . Feels akin to watching a well-made thriller on Netflix."--Shelf Awareness

"Impossible to put down. . . . A fantastic read for the adventurer in all of us, and especially for those who like to explore by reading instead."--Manhattan Book Review

"Well-written, action-packed, and ultimately, just a ton of fun!"

"A thrilling adventure story that is full of intrigue and suspense . . . The Maw will hold your attention throughout."

"Well-done and entertaining."
