Publisher's Summary

A terrifying story of a judge gone wild

In this stunning novel, Gerald Blumenthal explores the mind of a serial killer and the subsequent court room dramas that follow. Like his previous award-winning novel The Brass Compass (now being adapted to the big screen), The Monkey Trial is fact-based but is fictionalized to avoid another court drama!

The novel begs the question: what happens if a man chosen by society to judge others in society commits heinous crimes?

The Monkey Trial gives us a true and extraordinary account of the workings of the American legal system as it deals with a deranged serial killer. A novel full of action and suspense, The Monkey Trial will grab you from the very first few words and not let you go until the climactic ending!

This is a book no one can afford to miss.

A waste of time.

Lurid, and poorly written. Narrator struggled with syntax and pronunciation. I cannot recommend this one.
