I loved this book, medical mystery, horror, murder, intrigue, you name it it was there. Great plot, good characters, like taking a vacation to another place. I love Chimp mystery/horror and this is one of the best I've read.
I will read anything F.Paul Wilson cares to write. This one a little off-beat but a great and thought provoking story.
This plot seems very similar to the book "A Different Flesh" by Harry Turtledove. The Turtledove has the premise that North America was populated with Homo-Erectus instead of Humans when Columbus arrived and deals with the moral and social issues of human interaction with sub-humans in the last 500 years of history. Homo-Erectus are even named "Sims" by the humans. (The turledove books was written first btw)
Fascinating story; I like his Repairman Jack series better, but this is still a worthwhile read by an excellent and creative author.
Book in VG cond..
