By S P Mead TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Aug. 2016
Format: Paperback
If you're a fan of the "Predator" saga, then I highly recommend this novel. It's a direct sequel to author Nathan Archer's Predator: Concrete Jungle (Aliens Vs. Predator) - which is itself a follow-on from the original Schwarzenegger film. The central protagonist is a New York cop - Detective Shaefer - the brother of Major "Dutch" (i.e. Arnold). The story is set in the frozen wastes of Russia, at a desolate oil refinery. Unfortunately for both staff and military personnel based there, an alien ship has crash landed nearby - and these alien warriors (the predators) require the facility for its warmth and machinery, as they set about fixing their spaceship. As the Americans have been waiting for just such an occurrence, an elite team is sent to the station - seeking to capture alien technology. However, Shaefer isn't really interested in such tech - he simply wants to find out what happened to his missing brother, and get some payback for the carnage these 'predators' caused in New York (in the story presented in the aforementioned "Concrete Jungle" novel).

It's a well-written book, which a storyline not seen in the films. This novel was written in the 1990's - so more recent entries into the saga are (of course) not mentioned. It does help to have read "Concrete Jungle" prior to this book, although that's not essential.

Dread to think what the Predator books that get consistently low ratings are like if this gets a high score. Plot was pretty reasonable but it was spoiled by too many overly stereotypical characters & you were in very little doubt as to who was going to get shredded next.

A worth addition to the saga. Just wish shaffer was featured in more than these two.
