Strange things are happening in Monkeyland, the ailing Devonshire sanctuary that Patrick and his zoologist wife Jane, bought in a bid to save their marriage.

Rue, their oldest, wisest and most gentle female primae is found murdered.  And a big, panther-like cat preys around the park.  Evading capture, the cat lurks in the shadows and at the back of Patrick's mind.  Private, threatening, elusive.

Currently Reading - Natural History, Neil Cross

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Labelled as "a deeply unnerving literary thriller from acclaimed New Zealand writer Neil Corss - one of the scriptwriters on Spooks - that tantalises and then shocks the reader, as it delves into a troubled mind and untangles the complex relationships that surround an unusual family".

First paragraph:

"It was only a dead ape.  Patrick had seen dozens, one way or another.  He'd seen them die naturally, of old age and disease - and heard the war-shrieks as they murdered each other.  He'd watched them cannibalize their young".

Neil Cross's Natural History just showed up for review which provided me a) with a book I'm looking forward to reading and b) with a bio on the author that added a few things I hadn't been aware of.  Spooks is one of those fabulous British TV dramas, where the pace is taut and the storylines just realistic enough to make you go hmmmmmm.  And Neil Cross, who lives in New Zealand is one of the writers on the upcoming 6th Series of Spooks.
