A thrilling adventure, and the perfect beach read! A scientific expedition disappears in the Amazon and several years later, one of the expedition members emerges from the rainforest alive—he went in with one arm missing and came out with both in tact.

Exciting! Somewhat unbelievable but a real adventure story with all the characteristics of a trek through the dark, shadowy rain forest of the Amazon. I don't usually read these types of stories but this was exciting and quite enjoyable for an enthralling read! ( )

Definitely one of Rollings' most exciting books that I have read. Kept me on the edge of my seat until I finished it! ( )

Entertaining concept. ( )

This was probably my least favorite of Rollins' books so far, but it was still fun. It didn't veer once from the expected stops on the adventure-thriller ride - you can even identify the main character's love interest from the very first line that introduces her.

It would have been nice to have had a more ambiguous bad guy, it would have made for a more interesting story; the villain was way too over the top. He hunted endangered animals for money, and he destroyed rain forests, and he liked shooting people, and he blew things up, and he had a grudge against the main character's family, and hey, his girlfriend's hobby is making shrunken heads, sometimes while the victim is still alive! Can you tell he's evil yet? What if he'd had a more legitimate motive instead?

A note of apology: I see from glancing over my reviews for Rollins' previous books that I have used the word "fun" in every single one. And I already complained about a too-evil villain in Deep Fathom. I guess that books filled with clichés lend themselves to clichéd reviews. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060002492, Mass Market Paperback)

The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the world's most inhospitable rainforest--a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing . . . and came out with both intact.

Unable to comprehend this inexplicable event, the government sends Nathan Rand into this impenetrable secret world of undreamed-of perils, to follow the trail of his vanished father . . . toward mysteries that must be solved at any cost. But the nightmare that is awaiting Nate and his team of scientists and seasoned U.S. Rangers dwarfs any danger they anticipated . . . an ancient, unspoken terror--a power beyond human imagining--that can forever alter the world beyond the dark, lethal confines of . . .
