Dana Norland shoots two men in cold blood and flees the US for the mountains of Rwanda. Posing as a biologist, she finds herself caring for gorillas with Kristen, Dian Fosseys successor at the Karisoke research center. She has plenty of time to think about what shes done, but can she find peace? Apparently not, for the mountain is haunted both by the ghost of Dian Fossey, and by the men who murdered her. Personal vendetta joins with genocide, and to flee the marauding butchers, the women hide in the rainforest. Among the mountain gorillas they once protected, they learn what justice is. And what it is not.

A complex realistic thriller framed in the legacy of Dian Fossey’s work with gorillas in war-torn Rwanda. A postscript reality check includes the actual facts. This story challenges the justification of violence for any cause --the main character is a fugitive who committed a vengeful murder. Ignore the cheesy cover and enjoy this compelling read, which includes a lesbian romance!
