'Greig Beck has created a monstrous green jungle that is its own version of Hell'

Four and a half HELLISH Stars! Another fast-paced science fiction, mystery, and military adventure novel in the Alex Hunter series. "This Green Hell" is the 3rd in the series of full novels by author Greig Beck on the adventures of Captain Alex Hunter, code name "Arcadian", the commando team leader with the unusual physical and mental capabilities. Amid a backdrop of future possible scientific breakthroughs and some mysterious disappearances, the plot of the novel concerns strange activities near a Paraguayan jungle prototype drilling operation and its base camp involving Dr Aimee Weir from "Beneath the Dark Ice "(Alex Hunter) including the mysterious disappearance of a special forces team which was sent in to investigate. Alex and the other high-tech equipped "Hotzone All-Forces Warfare Commandos" (HAWCs) are ordered to investigate. Thus begins another wild ride for the HAWCs that seems similar in places to the 2 preceding Alex Hunter novels, but it is much better and different in general and shows Beck's ability to improvise on familiar themes among the novels. Beck cleverly introduces the most unusually formidable 'bad guy' yet in the series, centuries ago. As I have stated in previous reviews, those who are reading this series for the first time may be somewhat puzzled by Alex Hunter and his extraordinary powers, but they should either 'just go with it' and enjoy the fun or read the short prequel novella "Arcadian Genesis" first to get some of the Alex Hunter/HAWC backstory. Along the way in this novel we meet: "La Oscuridad Verde", Maria and Michael Vargis, more HAWC high tech items, The 10 Protocols, clavicula occultus, another very familiar returning character, and newly-promoted Colonel Hammerson, as usual, watching everything from the skies. This is another enjoyable, 'page turner' novel about "the Arcadian" and his high tech-equipped ranger-like forces in this 'addictive military action series'. And do read the "Author's Note" at the end of the novel to get some insight into Beck's research and thought processes in putting together the pieces of this novel. Highly Recommended! Four and a half FANTASTIC Stars! (400 pages, reviewed in Kindle text and text to speech mode. Next up for review in the series, "Black Mountain".)

The third Alex Hunter (Arcadian) novel from Greig Beck is another rip-roaring action / sci-fi / horror thriller.

First he gave us ice, second was desert and now we have jungle.

A mysterious illness is sweeping its way through a team drilling for gas deep in the jungle, and when an elite team of Marines get attacked by an unknown assailant, it's up to Arcadian to sort out the mess before it's too late.

With hints of Matthew Reilly's Temple and touches of James Rollins and Jack du Brul, Greig Beck is a name to be reckoned with in this particular genre. Oh, and the ending is certainly intriguing.

Alex Hunter is a terrific creation and I can't wait for his next adventure.

Fantastic fast paced 3rd book in the Alex Hunter series.
Based in the jungle, a gas drilling team are all falling ill to a mystery virus.
The Hawcs are sent to protect them and come up against a formidable foe.
Loved the book.

Excellent story, very imaginative and descriptive. Fast paced. Great characters. You feel pulled into the story as though you are there. Made my daily commute fly by. Greigs books never disappoint.

I have now read all the available Arcadian books and they get better and better, this is a cracker, pacy with lots of gore and a virulent disease, what more could you ask for?
