After travelling to over twenty dramatic locations in search of monster fish, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade encounters his most dangerous challenge to date.
Stories of attacks in a remote corner of Ukraine take him on a hunt for an elusive lake monster, and eventually to the most unlikely and extraordinary location of his career: the site of the worst nuclear accident in history, Chernobyl’s reactor number 4.
In a nerve-shredding race against radiation and time, can Jeremy reveal the culprit and deliver it to the scientists searching for evidence of mutant species?
