Synopsis

Sally Jones is not only a loyal friend, she's an extraordinary individual. In overalls or in a maharaja's turban, this unique gorilla moves among humans without speaking but understanding everything. She and the Chief are devoted comrades who operate a cargo boat. A job they are offered pays big bucks, but the deal ends badly, and the Chief is falsely convicted of murder.



For Sally Jones this is the start of a harrowing quest for survival and to clear the Chief's name. Powerful forces are working against her, and they will do anything to protect their secrets.

Staff Choice

This is one of my books of the year. It is the story of Sally Jones, a gorilla who is an engineer on board a cargo ship. When her captain is wrongly accused of a murder, she embarks on an epic adventure to clear his name. It is a truly gripping adventure story, with twists, turns and a wild cast of characters that includes a flying Maharaja. I enjoyed every page and could not put it down.
