“Pirog’s books are sharply written, evenly paced, and filled with unexpected wit.” —303 Magazine
“Please find me, Thomas! Please!”
Two years ago, Dr. Gina Brady broke Thomas Prescott’s heart, but now her panic-stricken satellite phone call starts it beating again with a fury. Thugs kidnapped the good doctor from the remote jungle village where she was working, and now the retired homicide detective’s expert skills are desperately needed to save her.
Led by a colorful, but perhaps untrustworthy local guide, Prescott journeys deep into the Bolivian Amazon, plunging into a world where the only thing more dangerous than the gun-toting drug traffickers and the ruthless tribesmen, is the jungle itself.
When Gina’s trail leads to a chance encounter with an archaeological expedition, the search for the missing doctor takes on even deadlier consequences. But Prescott will not relent in this punishing quest until, once again, he holds Gina in his arms.
The books in the Thomas Prescott Series can be enjoyed in any order, so grab Jungle Up and get started today.

“A retired homicide detective braves the Bolivian jungles to rescue the woman he loves…A fascinating backdrop, exciting adventures, plenty of twists.” —Kirkus Reviews
