Amazon Titanic
When it capsized and sank just yards from shore, the Sobral Santos went down in history as the Amazon’s worst ever boating disaster. Hundreds died – but for freshwater detective Jeremy Wade there’s an unexplained and disturbing detail; many of the stricken passengers were reportedly dragged do their deaths by powerful, unseen attackers. What hungry creatures could possibly have come up from the depths on that dark night, more than thirty years ago? Jeremy is determined to identify the culprits, but a river as vast as the Amazon hides many dangers, and the trail has long since gone cold.
