This time, her hero’s strength of character and sense of humour comes across clearly, aided and abetted by Brock Manyon’s closest friend, Sean.

Injured in the thick of action Brock encounters a strange and terrifying beast. He wakes up in hospital to discover the Doctors predict he’ll never walk again, and that his best friend died in the jungle.
Strange dreams and an unprecedented recovery from his injuries send Brock to his local library to research the images in his dreams.
Treva Reed, Ms. Monet's self-sufficient and efficient heroine is not quite what she seems, and when she and Brock meet, they both have to put aside they preconceptions and work together to overcome hidden enemies with, and without.
