In 1933, American showman Carl Denham returned from a mysterious, hidden island with a priceless treasure. A treasure not gold or jewels, but the island's barbaric god, a monstrous anthropoid called "Kong". The savage giant escaped and wreaked havoc among the man-made canyons of Manhattan, but within hours of the giant ape's death his body - and Carl Denham - disappeared. Twenty-five years later, the son of Carl Denham makes a shocking discovery that leads him back to the site of his father's greatest adventure and to the answers that will unlock the century's greatest mystery and history's greatest miracle.
Authorized by the Cooper Estate and based on the original novel that inspired the all-time classic film. This new novel acts as both prequel and sequel to the classic fantasy tale, King Kong.

"Overacted, Great Story"
Overacting was distracting, but the story carried it through and doesn' t disappoint. Well written.
"The Eighth Wonder of the World!!!"
Really Entertaining Storytelling!
There is no book to compare it to. It is both prequel and sequel. This tale takes us to the beginning of Kongs life to his final resting place and fills in what happens in between.
Kong vs. Gaw!
The death of Kongs mother and father was particularly moving and the special revelation in Kongs cave towards the end of the book.
For King Kong fans this book is essential! For those interested in mysterious adventure tales this book is a must! Give this a chance and you will not be disappointed!
