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.
