Book Mail – Smithy by Amanda Desiree

I’m loving this creepy cover for this new horror release. I’ve been needing some more horror books in my TBR and this one seems to fit the bill!

Thanks to Inkshares for the free copy in exchange for my honest review

SMITHY – Amanda Desiree (Released April 13th, 2021)

Here’s the synopsis:

In 1972, renowned researcher Dr. Piers Preis-Herald brought together a group of collegiate researchers to study the inner lives of man’s closest relative–primates. His team would undertake their study by raising a young chimpanzee and teaching him American Sign Language. The primate selected was born chimpanzee #710642 at the Kohlberg Center for Primate Research. He would eventually be known to the world as Smithy.

Nearly fifty years after the Smithy Project ended in tragedy at Trevor Hall, the question remains: Was Smithy a hoax? A clever mimic? A Rorschach projection of humanity’s greatest hopes and fears? Or was he indeed what devotees of metaphysics have claimed for so long: a link between our world and the next?
