From his arrest as a suspected spy in Southeast Asia to a plane crash in the rainforest, every page of the Wall Street Journal bestseller River Monsters is packed with adventure. From the heart of the Congo to the depths of the Amazon, Wade reels in fish of staggering proportions and terrifying demeanor for an unforgettable read.

Industry Reviews

Outside "Fishing may be a hobby to you, but for Jeremy Wade, host of Animal Planet's RiverMonsters, it's a way of life. Wade scours the rivers of the world for the stuff of legend, and we're lucky enough to bear witness. Viewers have seen him catch a lot of big fish ... but most of the thrill comes from watching the hunt." Library Journal, 8/1/12"Compelling."
