Fresh from fighting death in Ghost Flight, Will Jaeger - The Hunter - returns for his second high-octane adventure.

1942, and SS Lieutenant Herman Wirth uncovers an ancient body in a Greenland glacier. But, considering its monstrous state, Wirth concludes that it’s as if her body “had been at war with itself; as if it had rejected its own innards”. She’s the archetypal ice maiden “ancestor goddess” turned “devil woman”, and Wirth wonders what the hell killed her. Meanwhile, skip forward to the present day, and our hero Will is en route to a remote tropical island off the Cuban mainland, set on rescuing a kidnapped member of his expedition team, and soon a fresh feast of thrills unfurls at pulse-quickening speed.

Alongside the exhilarating intertwining of four journeys, an extraordinary variety of landscapes are vividly evoked, from the jungle island with its “shoulder-high elephant grass”, to the spider-infested, crystal-stippled Burning Angel cave in Africa. Inspired by the “true life exploits” of Bear's Grandpa Ted, AKA Brigadier William Edward Harvey Grylls OBE, this is peak action-adventure, a real a read-in-one sitting romp. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

Burning Angels by Bear Grylls

A prehistoric corpse entombed within an Arctic glacier, crying tears of blood. A jungle island overrun by rabid primates - escapees from a research laboratory's Hot Zone. A massive seaplane hidden beneath a mountain, packed with a Nazi cargo of mind-blowing evil. A penniless orphan kidnapped from an African slum, holding the key to the world's survival. Four terrifying journeys. One impossible path. Only one man to attempt it. Will Jaeger. The Hunter.
