In the jungle, it’s hunt or be hunted.
“Please find me, Thomas! Please!”
Two years ago, Dr. Gina Brady broke Thomas Prescott’s heart, but now her panic-stricken satellite phone call starts it beating again with a fury. Thugs kidnapped the good doctor from the remote jungle village where she was working, and now the retired homicide detective’s expert skills are desperately needed to save her.
Led by a colorful, but perhaps untrustworthy local guide, Prescott journeys deep into the Bolivian Amazon, plunging into a world where the only thing more dangerous than the gun-toting drug traffickers and the ruthless tribesmen, is the jungle itself.
When Gina’s trail leads to a chance encounter with an archaeological expedition, the search for the missing doctor takes on even deadlier consequences. But Prescott will not relent in this punishing quest until, once again, he holds Gina in his arms.
A Note From the Publisher
The Thomas Prescott Series, Book 5
“Jungle Up is a fabulous read, with vivid settings, fascinating characters, and a plot that takes the reader into the heart of the jungle and beyond. I highly recommend this book.”
-Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A retired homicide detective braves the Bolivian jungles to rescue the woman he loves…A fascinating backdrop, exciting adventures, plenty of twists.”
“In smooth, limpid prose [Pirog] builds a stunner of a novel, winding up a series of tense situations and exploding them in scenes of shock and surprise. Each time you think you’ve reached the core of things…the rug is pulled from under you.”
“Strange and unique, an adventure and a mystery, this is a modern interpretation of age-old jungle-wet adventure, but you couldn’t call it your grandpa’s book. Real readers who appreciate real writers, storytellers with a sense of wonder, need this.”
-Joe R. Lansdale
“This is wry, rollicking fun. Pirog’s easygoing hero battles everything from cannibals and cartels to scorpions and snakes…lots of snakes. And the payoff? A treasure more valuable than gold.”
-Brian Freeman, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep, Deep Snow
“Witty and action-packed. I loved it. Jungle Up is the kind of escape we’ve all been craving.”
-A. G. Riddle, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Atlantis Gene
