Deep in the African rain forest, near the legendary
ruins of the Lost City of Zinj, an expedition of eight
American geologists are mysteriously and brutally killed in
a matter of minutes.
Ten thousand miles away, Karen
Ross, the Congo Project Supervisor, watches a gruesome video
transmission of the aftermath: a camp destroyed, tents
crushed and torn, equipment scattered in the mud alongside
dead bodiesâ€”all motionless except for one moving imageâ€”a
grainy, dark, man-shaped blur.
In San Francisco,
primatologist Peter Elliot works with Amy, a gorilla with an
extraordinary vocabulary of 620 "signs," the most ever
learned by a primate, and she likes to finger paint. But
recently her behavior has been erratic and her drawings
match, with stunning accuracy, the brittle pages of a
Portuguese print dating back to 1642 . . . a drawing of an
ancient lost city. A new expeditionâ€”along with Amyâ€”is sent
into the Congo, where they enter a secret world, and the
only way out may be through a horrifying death . . .
