Publisher's Summary

Matt Kearns, linguist, archaeologist and reluctant explorer from Beneath the Dark Ice and Black Mountain returns in his first full-time adventure. And this time he doesn't have Alex Hunter to save him when the stuff hits the fan.
When a fame-hungry scientist brings an impossible, living specimen of a creature long thought extinct back from the wild jungles of South America he unwittingly brings along a passenger. Something with the potential to destroy every living thing on our planet.
The infestation begins, rapidly overtaking medical resources and resisting all treatment. One woman knows the danger: Carla Nero, chief scientist of the Center for Disease Control. She makes Matt an offer he can't refuse and together they join a team heading to the deep jungle in a desperate race to locate the hidden place where the specimen was taken.
Only by finding the location of the specimen can the team - and the world - hope to uncover the secret of how to survive the ancient, horrifying parasite that has been released.

Episode 1 was good but # 2 & 3 are not

Enjoyed the first episode BUT annoyed that the book was released in three separate segments instead of just one. We have to pay more money this way. Episode 1 was good enough that I bought episodes 2&3 as soon as I finished the first. This was a mistake. Episode 2 became tedious with way too many "monsters" and deadly events. I also wanted more details as to what was happening back in the US. Have started Episode 3 but won't finish it. It lacks the promise of #1 and isn't worth my time.

A strong start

This is a classic pulp style adventure into the jungles. Great characters, lots of adventure, very entertaining. When I finished this one, I couldn't wait to listen to the next one. One word of caution: the 3rd installment stinks, but the good news is that its not entirely needed for the story. Just listen to the first two, and then make up your own ending for the third one, because anything you come up with will be better than the crap ending they drop on us.
