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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I don't know when I last read a book with such pure and unalloyed pleasure. It's ingenious, it's moving, it's charming, it's beautiful, it's exciting, and most importantly the characters are people I fell I know like old friends. I thank Jakob Wegelius wholeheartedly for giving me several hours of joy." - Philip Pullman

"Sally Jones is now my favourite heroine in recent Children's books. Move over King Kong, there's a new great ape in town. Charming, moving, and page-turning - what's not to like about this very original novel?? You gor-really got to read this!" - Julia Golding, author of The Diamond of Drury Lane

'"This may be the most charming book I've read all year." - New York Times Book Review
"A head-spinning story of mystery, intrigue, love and adventure." - Shelf Awareness

"A complex mystery, an intricately constructed narrative, and deep characters. Committed, careful readers will be richly rewarded." - Kirkus Reviews

"A thrilling adventure. Prepare to meet the remarkable Sally Jones; you won't soon forget her." - Publishers Weekly

“Highly unusual and sensitive adventure”

The Murderer's Ape is a wonderful and immersive story, full of suspense and a very tenacious gorilla, who will do whatever it takes to save her friend. Superb writing style and unique storytelling.
