Jeremy Wade travels to Colombia, one of the most dangerous countries in South America, to search for a River Monster thought to have dragged a honeymoon bride to her death. His investigation begins with the usual suspects, but when none of those fish prove capable of inflicting the wounds found on the bride, a key witness turns the search on its head. Jeremy conducts an experiment to prove his new, unlikely suspect is capable of dragging an adult under the water. Finally he pushes his fishing gear past breaking-point to discover the River Monster known as the ‘Colombian Slasher’.
