When baby Ivy Rose Morgan is kidnapped in broad daylight, there is only one witness: Neema, a gorilla with the IQ of a five-year-old human. The detective on the case immediately assumes the teenage mother did something to the baby, but little by little he unravels the case with the help of Neema to find what really happened.
The Only Witness sucked me right in. The characters – human and gorilla – are written in a way that made me really care about what happened to them. Each chapter is another day after Ivy disappears so that even though it is a pretty fast read, you really get a sense of the agonizingly long process of the investigation. I highly recommend this book to fans of crime fiction.
