Deep in the steaming jungles of Paraguay, Aimee Weir is in trouble. The petrobiologist has found what she was looking for - a unique microorganism in a natural gas deposit - but it proves to be more destructive than anyone could have imagined. A contagion is striking down all in its wake. The camp is quarantined, but workers start to vanish in the night.
Is it fear of contamination - or has something far more lethal come to the surface? Something that has been trapped beneath the miles of stone, waiting... for us.
Alex Hunter - code name Arcadian - and his Hotzone All-Forces Warfare Commandos must be dropped in to the disaster area to do whatever it takes to stem the outbreak. It has been a year since Aimee has seen Alex; she thought she had left him for good. Now she needs him more than ever.
In the sweltering jungles of South America, the Arcadian must learn to master his violent inner demons for this rescue mission to have any chance of success. But can he survive long enough to confront the danger that threatens the very survival of mankind?

"Greig Beck returns to the world of Alex Hunter with great gusto. As with the other books there's fantastic research woven into the story and it seems Greig really loves to throw together facts from all over the place and mix them with a generous dollop of action and what-if. It's a winning combination [and] what gives this story real depth and interest long after the current threat is put to rest, and it's what will make me rush out to get book four. This Green Hell is a smart, delightful read with a big heart. Four Stars." (Keith Stevenson, publisher and editor, Coeur de Lion Books)
"Danger, disappearances and contagion follow Dr Aimee Weir's important discovery in the Paraguayan jungle. Author Beck piles on the action and suspense. In a word: steamy!" (Gold Coast Bulletin)
"Greig Beck is Clive Cussler meets Matthew Reilly - Violent, visceral and very, very good fun" (Australian South Coast Register)
"Crichton, Rollins and Beck!"
A tautly written, intense, scary, wonderful jungle adventure. Utterly satisfying: monsters, heroes, transformations, soldiers, betrayals.
This Green Hell sucks you in and leaves you ready for Beck's next book.
In my opinion, a Guaranteed great download for fans of Michael Crichton, Michael Cordy and James Rollins.
