The heroine of The Murderer’s Ape returns for another seafaring adventure!
This is old fashioned storytelling in the finest tradition. I was transported to Sally Jones’s world of sea ports and sailors and gangsters and I couldn’t have enough. Every word was an utter delight! – Nizrana Farook, author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant
When Sally Jones and The Chief discover a curious rose-shaped necklace hidden onboard their beloved ship, it’s the start of a perilous adventure for the seafaring gorilla and her faithful friend. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, they set sail for Glasgow. There, they fall into the clutches of the city’s most ruthless gang, commanded by a fearsome smuggler queen who will stop at nothing to snatch the necklace for herself.
Held prisoner hundreds of miles from friendship and safety, Sally Jones must use all her strength, determination and kindness to escape and unravel the mysterious story of the false rose?a twisting tale leading all the way from Lisbon to Shetland and the South Seas.
