In 1932, American showman Carl Denham returned from a mysterious, hidden island with a priceless treasure—the island's barbaric god, a monstrous anthropoid called "Kong." The savage giant escaped and wreaked havoc through the concrete jungle of Manhattan, but within hours of the beast's death plummet from the peak of the Empire State Building, his body—and Carl Denham—disappeared. Twenty-five years later, the son of Carl Denham makes a shocking discovery that leads him back to the site of his father's greatest adventure and to answers that will unlock the secrets surrounding nature's greatest miracle and history's greatest mystery.
