Dana Armstrong is no ordinary primatologist. In the 1970s, she was the little blond girl with a chimpanzee for a sister, a participant in her father's psychology experiment that sought to narrow the divide between species. Dana wants nothing more than to forget her past, but as director of a chimpanzee sanctuary in the woods of South Carolina, she cannot escape. Dana arrives at work one morning to discover that the worst has happened: someone has vandalized the buildings and opened the cages, setting loose a group of particularly dangerous chimpanzees. As Dana scrambles to determine who was responsible and political and personal tensions rise in the human world, the chimpanzees have their own crises, events that Dana, more than ever, cannot afford to ignore. Captivity is a unique, surprising world unto itself-a high literary work, a page-turner, and an issues novel all at once
