1 Review
Palaeontologist Kathryn Widd is called to the Kenyan wilderness to investigate a set of hominid skull fragments. As she studies the ancient fossils, she becomes intrigued by the tale of a 1908 safari and the British nobleman who died mysteriously near the site of her dig. The further she probes, the more deeply she is drawn into past lives and a world turned upside down by ancient, mysterious forces of violence. The Hanging Tree is a compelling piece of fiction that raises disturbing questions about love and jealousy, cruelty throughout the history of humankind, and sexual obsession.
