Gone Gorilla

Imajin Qwickies, an imprint of Imajin Books

 An Imajin Qwickies® Horror Novella

Mix the horror of The Relic with the humor of Midnight at the Museum and “Imajin” twists and turns that keep you guessing and questioning the meaning of true honor, duty, courage, and the rules of reality.

When the famous Bushman exhibit of a lowland gorilla goes missing from Chicago’s Museum of Natural History, no self-respecting Chicago police detective wants the case. So the assignment is pawned off on an ‘old fart squad’ of retirees called back into service and led by the classy Aubrey Hamilton. But how does one profile a thief who has stolen a 500 lb. stuffed ape?

At first, Aubrey and her team suspect a hoax or fraternity joke—until bodies turn up inside the museum. Now the elderly sleuths must treat the case as a multiple-homicide investigation. However, the brutal nature of the attacks suggests Aubrey and her team have stumbled upon something…supernatural.

About the author

Award-winning author and graduate of Northwestern University, ROBERT W. WALKER created his highly acclaimed, INSTINCT and EDGE Series between 1982 and 2005, extending it to present day via Kindle eBooks.

A native of Chicago by way of Corinth, Mississippi, Rob has since written his award-winning historical series with HarperCollins. The City Series features Inspector Alastair Ransom and began with CITY FOR RANSOM (2006), SHADOWS IN THE WHITE CITY (2007), and CITY OF THE ABSENT (2008). This history-mystery hybrid straddles the Chicago World’s Fair circa 1893, and has had enthusiastic reviews from Chicago historians and the Chicago Tribune, which likened “the witticism to Mark Twain, the social consciousness to Dickens, and the ghoulish atmosphere to Poe!”

Rob’s most recent books have been CHILDREN of SALEM – Love Amid the Witch Trials, and TITANIC 2012 – Curse of RMS Titanic, a new ‘theory’ of why Captain Edward Smith sank the Titanic as Rob put a plague-spreading monster on board (concurrent stories of present day and historical suspense and horror). Rob followed up his Titanic title with BISMARCK 2013 – Hitler’s Curse.

Rob now resides in Hurricane, WV with two cats, several children, and wife Miranda Phillips Walker, RN (also a crime writer: The Well Meaning Killer, Ghosts in the ER).
