Overview

Gorillas that communicate in sign language aren't exactly commonplace, so when Dr. Grace McKenna reluctantly hosts the first open house at her research center, half the town of Evansburg, Washington shows up to gawk. The next morning, Grace discovers that her worst nightmare has come true. All three apes--Gumu, Neema, and baby Kanoni--have vanished, leaving behind only one clue: a huge pool of blood.

Grace is frantic. She hopes the apes have simply escaped into the nearby forests. If the press learns of her gorillas' disappearance, the county will revoke her permit to keep the apes.

Detective Matthew Finn is sure that a criminal is at work. He risks his job for Grace by agreeing to keep the disappearance secret while doing his best to solve the crime. Has the maniac who murdered Grace's first gorilla returned? Have Grace's trusted staff members, who belong to the controversial Animal Rights Union, 'liberated' the apes? Or have exotic animal dealers stolen the valuable gorillas to sell on the illegal wildlife market?

I loved "The Only Witness" but was disappointed with "The Only Clue". It just didn't hold up as well as the first book. It was interesting because it elaborated more on the behavior of gorillas than the first book did, but the plot wasn't as good.

I just finished both Neema books!! I LOVED them!!!! I can hardly wait for the next one. I couldn't put them down until they were finished. Needless to say, I recommend them both highly --especially if you love non-human animals.

Suspenseful, snaps your attention, absolutely wonderful sequel, to "The Only Witness". A detective who has to use his wits, and make the connections, no instant CSI! Great read
