At a haunted house on Halloween, high school senior Jordan Peale meets a pretty teen in foster-care named Caley. After a gruesome car accident, she disappears. Five years later he meets her again in a diner outside Brownsville and now her pretty face is scarred with scratch marks and she calls herself Hannah. Jordan is on assignment to film a Halloween documentary and is slated to cover the annual event in Catemaco at the foot of The Mountain of the White Monkey. He tells Hannah he remembers her but she denies it and warns him against going to Catemaco. He wants to know why, but she won't tell him. Later, after he and his hilarious cameraman Martin battle thieves, witches, spiders, snakes, and a large hair-covered man whose calling card is serpentine patterns of mud, he begins to suspect this girl is not just part of the story, but that she is the story.

On The Mountain of the White Monkey based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This really is the dumbest book I have ever read. I like this author's other books that I have read so I figured this sounded pretty good (the title intrigued me). Don't waste your time or money. I finished it because . . . I don't know!
This is the third book by Epperson that I've read. He quickly draws his reader into the story gaining interest from page one. Although from his other books I've read, (The Neighborhood, and Green Lake) it is clear that Epperson likes to end his stoies a bit abruptly and leave much to the imagination, White Monkey Mountain's ending is almost clipped. It is almost as if his time to write simply ran out. This is still a worthwhile read, but I don't feel it's a good representation of Epperson's talent as an author. 3 & 1/2 stars.
