"As an aside, if memory serves, the worst great white attacks ever on the east coast occured in New Jersey where a Serial Human Eater took up residense during the summer. If I'm not mistaken, he swam up very small creeks and into saltponds to catch his bipedal snacks. I think he ate like five guys!"
You got it - there's a good book about that shark and summer (it was 1916) called Close to Shore (Michael Capruzzo is the author). Interesting read.
