Fierce Kingdom by Gin Phillips
The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours – the entire scope of the novel – she keeps on running.
Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself – the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines – transform her into the hero she and her son need to stay a step ahead of danger.
