Mike Nelson is hired to locate two geologists who were conducting a survey just off the coast. When a body washes up on shore, it turns out to be one of the missing men. The tentacles marks on his leg seem to suggest that he was attacked by an octopus but Mike doesn't believe that as an octopus will not normally attack swimmers. Unbeknown to him the second diver, Wilkes, wants to keep the survey results for himself as it indicates the existence of large oil deposits. Wilkes also has a partner and as a result Mike's life is in danger. Written by garykmcd
