Anne is a young, brilliant scientist working for a farmaceutical company. She has found a revolutionary new drug that has not yet been tested on humans, but after a car accident, she is forced to spend her days in a wheelchair at home. She is frustrated and impatient, but trusts her friends and colleagues to keep her updated until she is able to return to work. Her husband Clark is part of her team, adores Anne and is seemingly content to stay in her shadow. Their marriage seems solid, and there's a lot of talk of their adventurous sex life. Things take a nasty turn when the chimps in the test group become murderous, and simultaneously the drug is approved for testing on humans. Money and politics make the higher-ups push forward despite the homicidal apes in the lab, and Clark chooses not to mention the problem to his wife. This could have been a thriller about evil drug companies and crazy scientists, but instead it turns into a chilling account of a marriage gone wrong. Not what I expected at all. A little dated (published in 1976) and not very subtle, but an interesting read. source: Goodreads.com
