Amazon Jungle Action Thriller
Members of the expedition include brothers Mark and Nathan who went to have a summer adventure. The experience they have is life-changing and far surpasses anything that they could have dreamed of.
As the expedition members interact with the jungle and natives that live there, lives are lost and others are changed. The surviving members are forced to look at themselves, their morals, and their attitudes.
Except for the fact that the story is being told by a surviving member of the party, The Returned is not predictable. We know from the beginning of the book that at least one person survived. The story moves fast with some tense and action filled moments.
Dr. Brown is also the author of The Eighth Scroll which I reviewed in August of 2010. That review can be found at http://www.reallyrandomsite.com/thebookreview/the-eighth-scroll-by-laurence-b-brown/.
Like his first book, this book contains no bad language or adult situations. It does have some violent death scenes but they are a natural part of the story.
I highly recommend both of his books to those who enjoy action thrillers.
