Audible Editor Reviews

An excellent cast of actors adds intensity and real stakes to this story about biologist Schuyler Baines, who arrives bristling with ideas at a research station in the Galapagos islands, only to find herself in over her head. Schuyler shuts down a black market that threatens the local ecosystem and is unprepared for the backlash. Cynthia Watros has Schuyler's personality down - her voice rings with good intentions gone awry - and makes Schuyler maddening and eventually, sympathetic. Based on actual events, this drama explores the themes of evolution and extinction, framed by Darwin's theory of the survival of the fittest.
