When anthropologist Jim Dutton was given a genetically augmented chimpanzee named Umber to raise alongside his daughter Brett, the stipulations of SAC’s contract didn’t seem too ominous.

But as Umber matures, her mental abilities exceed any parameters for chimps. Dutton starts fudging his data, hoping desperately to hide Umber’s remarkable abilities. Until the day SAC wants their ape back! But what can he do? She’s as much his daughter as the precocious Brett.

As dark forces draw around Dutton’s little family, he has no recourse but to return Umber to Africa, and of course, Umber isn’t going without her sister Brett. At first the compound in Equatorial Guinea appears benign, but there are other augmented apes, escaped from the cages to the freedom of the rain forest, and without Umber’s sense of morality.

And one of them, possessed of remarkable blue eyes, has seen Brett, and desires her golden-blonde hair. To save her sister, Umber must brave the forest, the wild apes, and ultimately prove that a sister’s love overcomes all. The only chance Jim Dutton has of recovering his girls lies with his long-divorced wife: an internationally controversial and renown reporter. In the end, however, it is Blue Eyes who will call the shots—and they will end in blood.

Based on actual science, Dark Inheritance poses tough ethical questions on what it means to be sentient, and the dilemma of genetically augmented primates. Must reading for anyone with a bent toward the latest science, the implications of personhood, and an enthralling story full of suspense and thrills.
