About the Author:

Richard Kurti studied at Cambridge then worked at the BBC as a TV sound recordist. This led to a move into full time screenwriting. Richard's film writing includes 14 completed commissions for US studios (Universal, Warner Bros, Miramax and Laika) and UK companies such as Working Title and Pathe. His TV writing includes BBC adaptations of Kidnapped and Sherlock Holmes, episodes of Robin Hood, Primeval (ITV), Sinbad (Sky), Wolfblood (BBC), and a large-scale adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal for Sky. These shows have earned widespread industry recognition with BAFTA nominations and RTS Awards. In 2013, Richard branched out into new areas, with a radio dramatization of The Martian Chronicles (BBC Radio 4). Monkey Wars, his debut novel, was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal.

Review:

Full of espionage, double agents, conspiracy, lies, action and general excitement, not to mention humour, there's nothing to dislike about this book! * Carrier Pigeon Reviews * Strikingly original -- Anthony Horowitz I would highly recommend this novel to teens * We Sat Down * Wonderfully addictive * Sister Spooky * A thrilling debut novel...tense and compelling -- Julia Eccleshare * Lovereading4kids.co.uk * A fantastic read * Page After Page * This is a complex book that interrogates the efficacy of choice, all the while opening your mind to new ways of seeing * We Love This Book * The strength of the novel lies in Kurti's skill in creating an animal world of utter credibility, easily as subtle, complex and devious as our own. * Irish Times * The central questions here are seen to be about trust, truth and loyalty, abstractions treated her with invigorating originality. * Irish Times * A fast-paced and evocatively written novel * CBI Recommended Reads 2013 * Readers who might be drawn to Watership Down but prefer a faster pace will relish the antics of the monkey tribes of Kolkata * Guardian * One of the most excitingly different and memorable books of the year so far can be read as a page-turning visceral, action-packed thriller about urban warfare... a rare beast indeed: an exciting read that is more than worthy of classroom study * Reading Zone * A truly remarkable allegorical tale which sheds light on the difficulties of decision making in times of political unrest and war... I can't recommend this novel highly enough for adult readers * Kids in Madrid * It is fast-paced throughout, constantly inventive... a great introduction for teens to the machinations of politics and the complexities of war * Big Book Little Book * Overall a great insight into the dynamics and politics of society and how groups can interact in positive and destructive ways. The world building is great and really highlights influence of leaders and how ideas can grow and grow. Truly fascinating! * Snuggling on the Sofa blog *
