DESCRIPTION

A massive one-eyed monster lurking in the Amazon. A freakish desert creature spraying acid and delivering electric shocks. An ape-like creature walking upright in the Indonesian jungle. You won’t find them under your bed. These are the monsters of persistent myth and legend … and may just be based on real creatures. If they are out there, someone needs to find them and document them to prove their existence.

Meet Pat Spain, a young wildlife scientist working in an ultra-advanced biotech facility. He is also an explorer willing to go to extremes to separate fact from fiction. Spain travels the globe in search of mythical creatures that stalk our wildernesses. From the Brazilian Amazon to the Gobi Desert, Spain begins each mission with adventure in his veins and a tradition of investigating monsters in his DNA. His great-uncle, Charles Fort, was a paranormal pioneer who investigated strange reports from around the world at the start of the 20th century. Now Spain continues the legacy of scouting the bizarre and brings the latest technology to search for a scientific explanation for the seemingly outlandish stories that local tribes and residents swear are truth.
