(From the publisher):
When zoologist Gregg O'Hara encounters a giant gorilla in a remote jungle, he knows he's made an amazing find-and so do poachers who are determined to hunt down and capture the incredible animal. Gregg and Jill, the orphan who raised Joe, decide to move Joe to safety in a California animal preserve. When a terrifying chain of events puts Joe loose in the city of Los Angeles, with poachers hot on his trail, Gregg and Jill must rescue Joe before he destroys Los Angeles, or it destroys him.
