From the jacket:
On the dusty, remote plains of Kenya, Royce Crawford runs a baboonery, a way station for animals captured and awaiting shipment to research laboratories in America. He, his wife, two children, and his small staff live in virtual isolation from the rest of the world. One day there is a strange light in the East African sky, and the baboons start disappearing from their cages. When Crawford tracks them down, he finds that the animals have *changed*. The strange look of cold intelligence in their eyes reveals to Crawford that he is no longer the hunter, but the hunted. Something, with a mind as different from his as his is from the baboons, is using the animals to study him. Sensing and alien intelligence somewhere in the African bush, Crawford and his small group begin a desperate fight for survival against the unknown, in which the author, a professional anthropologist, asks the question: Which side of the microscope are we really looking through?
