Emma Parks joins a monkey research project deep in the South American rainforest on a whim.

She refuses to admit it might have something to do with a close friend’s death from which she has not recovered‚ but it’s certainly not because she knows anything about spider monkeys‚ least of all what they look like.

She’s barely arrived when International Wildlife Conservation’s renowned director drowns during a party celebrating the group’s controversial takeover of the park.

Tension mounts following the machete murder of a researcher‚ threatening Emma’s budding primatology career‚ her secret romance with an Australian zoologist‚ and more importantly—her life.

"This debut from McClintock has the ring of authenticity, along with romance and a mystery that keeps you guessing." Kirkus Review, November 2012

— Kirkus Review

“This romantic-suspense debut is perfect for those seeking adventure mixed in with their mystery. McClintock creates a vivid jungle environment, a perfect venue for a closed-room mystery. Her characters run a little larger than life, making the story feel like a reality TV show. With a bit of Scott Smith’s tone, this would work for Hilary Davidson fans too.”-Library Journal, December 2012
