The Amazon is a place of breathtaking beauty, but also one of tremendous danger in which death can take many forms. Few, however, suspected that it would manifest itself in the form of a genetically engineered anaconda of extraordinary size with a ravenous appetite for the things that live on and beneath the river—especially human beings. Among the few scientists who know of the creature’s existence is world renowned cryptozoologist Paul Manhart who, along with his young but intrepid assistant, Sarah Underhill, are on a quest not only to prove the snake’s existence to Brazilian authorities, but persuade them to do something about it before it wreaks havoc among the larger population centers on the Amazon River. The only problem is that Paul Manhart didn’t expect to fall in love with his assistant, nor did he realize the tremendous price their eventual encounter with the beast will cost them, both personally and in blood. An exciting, action-packed fictional novel based on fact! Includes maps and illustrations, a great book to take on your next adventure!
