"A Terrifying Story of a Judge Gone Wild"
In this stunning new novel, Gerald Blumenthal explores the mind of a serial killer and the subsequent court room dramas that follow. Like his previous award-winning novel The Brass Compass (now being adapted to the big screen), The Monkey Trial is fact-based but is fictionalized to avoid another court drama! The novel begs the question: what happens if a man chosen by society to judge others in society commits heinous crimes? The Monkey Trial gives us a true and extraordinary account of the workings of the American legal system as it deals with a deranged serial killer. A novel full of action and suspense, The Monkey Trial will grab you from the very first page and not let you go until the climactic ending!
This is a book no one can afford to miss.
Author Carlette Ritter

"A Fact-Based story"
Who would have thought that a well-respected judge could have become a serial killer? Gerald Blumenthal's second novel is the culmination of hundreds of in-depth interviews with attorneys and medical personnel involving real murder trials and real life dramas. Impeccably researched,
grippingly told with eleventh-hour drama, filled with serial murders and court room drama this novel reads like a page-turning murder mystery.
It will horrify with cutting truth, yet ultimately the story will reveal the facts behind man's failings. This book is a master-piece to savor and keep on our bookshelves.
