The Devil's Garden

by Edward Docx

A gripping journey into the Amazon rain forest, with plenty of excitement. But this is Conrad's Heart of Darkness for existentialists with added Theory of Evolution, so don't expect any easy answers to the moral questions raised.

'We are doing science. It's a research station.'
'No, it's a government facility that your university rents off a poorer country that will do whatever it can to make itself richer - just like your own. That's what countries do. That's what we want countries to do - no? And it's only been used as a scientific station for the last five years - which is no time at all.' He exhaled. 'Welcome to the mess'.
