Our hero, Alex Hunter, has no memory of who (or what) he is and with the help of the beautiful, yet deadly, Mossad spy Adira Senesh sets out to discover his past.
Meanwhile, something not quite human has been accidentally released from the depths of hell and is attacking the quiet folk of a small American town. A colourful combination of characters investigate this and pretty soon alarm bells are ringing as it is slowly revealed to them exactly what they're dealing with.
Alex too is drawn to the same small American town searching for his answers. Pursued by numerous foreign (and domestic!) agencies who all want a piece of the Arcadian they all collide on Black Mountain for a frenetic climax.
Greig's books are such great fun and provide wonderful escapism. Up there with Matthew Reilly, Andy McDermott and James Rollins for action and adventure.
Can't wait for the next.
It flows well from the other books in the Arcadian series and I do feel that they need to be read in sequence for the nuances of the characters and their interactions to be appreciated.
Like the other books in the series I would suggest that the reader not analyse the plot too much but simply read for the fun of it but there was one point where I must admit that I did linger. The non-human characters in this book are based on the legends of a large primate creature which is of course known by different names in different parts of the world - could they have a basis in reality? I find that I keep hoping they just might and so like novels, such as this one, that weave this theme into their plot lines.
Good action; but the Alex out of control, out of his mind and essentially being more wild animal than reasoning human got a little tiresome.
Not the strongest in the series but I will read more.
