      • content: Scientists and U.S. Rangers journey into the Brazilian jungle to uncover the mystery behind a lost scientific expedition. Their mission involves both unusual natural dangers--such as piranhas with legs and giant crocodiles--and saboteurs out to steal their potentially valuable findings. For Nathan Rand, the quest is personal; his father led the lost mission. For the world, it could provide a cure for a mysterious plague. Ruben Santiago-Hudson brings this tale of strange perils and brilliant escapes alive. He builds tension skillfully and even brings a bit of emotional depth to the comic-book adventure. Some listeners may object to the bloodiness of the tangles with natural and other enemies. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine

        March 4, 2002
        The use of mass market originals as a farm team for hardcovers has lost popularity, but still works occasionally, as with Rollins, whose three mass markets (Deep Fathom, Excavation
        and Subterranean) displayed a flair for brawny adventure within an exotic locale—a flair put to good use in his hardcover debut. A U.S. Special Forces agent walks out of the Amazon jungle and quickly dies of rampant tumors; what's especially bizarre is that this man has two arms, but when he entered the jungle five years before as part of a biopharmaceutical exploratory expedition, which has been lost track of, he had only one. The rest of the novel follows a group of scientists and U.S. military guardians as they trek deep into the jungle in search of the missing expedition and, hopefully, the secret to the regrown arm—a secret that takes on vast importance when the dead agent's body, shipped to the States, spreads a disease that threatens to wipe out the American population. Meanwhile, a second, predatory expedition, led by a French psychopath, surreptitiously follows the first, aiming to steal whatever cure the searchers uncover; both expeditions wind up at the isolated home of a legendary tribe and the malignant, giant tree that sustains it. Rollins won't win awards for his prose or characters, though both function smoothly in this boldly drawn entertainment, and there's little here that isn't a variation of some classic adventure trope. His pacing is forceful, however, and his atmospherics rich, with giant caimans and jaguars, mutant amphibians and hungry locusts adding to the mayhem, a high body count and a congenial sense of the ridiculous—although Rollins plays it deadpan. This is old-fashioned, rugged adventure in the tradition of Haggard and Crichton, told with energy, excitement and a sense of fun. (Mar.)Forecast:National print ads and California regional author appearances will win Rollins some fans, but the simultaneous release of 12-copy prepacks of his three mass markets manifest this novel's likely fate: respectable hardcover, bestselling paperback.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: A man loses an arm, then himself, in the Amazon rain forest, reappearing years later with his arm grown back, but dying before he reveals the fate of the other members of his expedition or the secret of his limb's regeneration. Two diverse expeditions set off into the jungle to solve the mystery. The good guy team includes a spy for the bad guy team, led by an unscrupulous French adventurer and his Indian mistress, who has some skill in native magic, which she uses to satisfy her sadistic sexual cravings. Incident piles upon incident, crisis upon crisis, complication upon complication, narrow escape after improbable narrow escape. George Guidall makes the most out of the derring-do, squeezes whatever he can out of the thin characterizations, and neatly disguises the unintentional silliness. This nonstop adventure tale with sci-fi elements is much improved by his reading. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
