Malpelo Victoria Rivera

Mia, a young marine biologist, takes the treacherous journey to Malpelo, a remote island 500km off the coast of Colombia, in order to investigate the troubling disappearance of hammerhead sharks. To do so, she will have to navigate the dangerous waters of the pacific ocean, trapped on a boat with an all-male crew. They prove to be just as slippery as the predators she’s studying.
