About this book

An eye-opening chronicle of discovery - a narrative that traces the surprising evolution of Darwin's genius and celebrates the unexpected rewards of close observation of the natural world.

'Far sharper and more engaging than the smug Kellermans.' The Guardian 'Thrillers of the first order.' Nelson DeMille 'Psychological suspense at its best.' Jeffery Deaver
