If you are lost, Hunter can find you. Whether or not you want him to. Still, he's particular about the searches he takes on. So when the men from the military who come seeking his help are very secretive about the mission they want to recruit him for, Hunter's instincts tell him to refuse.

But the beast that is loose somewhere north of the Arctic Circle has already charged through an undercover research facility, wiping out an elite military training squad armed with automatic weapons. And it is headed south for civilization, ready to wreak all kinds of devastation. What Hunter uncovers in the arctic snow is a half-human abomination with a hunger for human blood, the result of outlaw genetic experiments that may have made it immortal. In an unholy race with the same secret government agency that spawned this beast, Hunter and his team find themselves isolated, with only their courage and survival skills standing between them and annihilation.

When it comes to action, nobody does it better than Byron Huggins, and Hunter -- already snapped up by Sylvester Stallone -- is his best action thriller yet, the most riveting beast story since Dean Koontz's Watchers.

At last, though, Hunter and the beast fall into volcanic hand-to-hand combat, trading blows that would jelly or behead a normal man, a battle raging like hot lava for page after page of comic-strip panels.

Huggins's latest thriller (after the biblical Cain), about the clinical combination of modern man with the recovered DNA of a super-predatory but mercifully extinct proto-human, avoids falling into mere mindless action fiction by its unusually deft characterization.
