by Carlton R. Collier
A mysterious murder at a university primate research center challenges a newspaper reporter, the escalating action driven by a criminal mastermind who controls the university and illegal primate trafficking worldwide. When the beautiful black research director’s affair with the university president poses a likely scandal, the crime boss has her fired.
Struggling for redemption, she becomes a target from all sides. The tension builds amid the gun culture of white supremacists, and a bloody confrontation becomes inevitable.
Amid that backdrop of corruption, hatred, hypocrisy and violence, a message rings through about integrity and truth, and about the triumph of true friendship and romantic love.
