Description

A captivating story about dark truths and heinous crimes as well as unexpected friendships. Perfect for fans of mystery and detective stories.

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.

Childlike telling of an intriguing series of events

Sally Jones narration of the story's series of events uses some sophisticated language, but with a somewhat childlike viewpoint. Some of the mystery's revelations were a long time telegraphed before she puts things together for herself. Still. I like the approach for middle and high school readers.
