Baker & Taylor
An unwilling passenger on a human colony spaceship, Lovelock, a biologically engineered monkey in the service of one of Earth's most brilliant scientists, begins to feel the strain of servitude, despite his devotion to his mistress. Reprint. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

Lovelock is a capuchin monkey engineered to be the perfect servant--intelligent, agile, pliant, and devoted to his owner. He is a Witness--privileged to spend his days and nights observing the life of one of Earth's most brilliant scientists through digital recording devices behind his eyes. In his heart is the desire to please, not just to avoid the pain his owner can inflict with a word, but because he loves her.

Lovelock is on a voyage he did not choose. What human would consider the feelings of a capuchin monkey, no matter how enhanced? But Lovelock is something special among Witnesses--he's a little smarter than most humans; smart enough to break through some of his conditioning. Smart enough to feel the bonds of slavery, and want freedom.

& Taylor

Famed planetologist Carol Jeanne Cocciolone embarks on a one-way voyage across the galaxy as part of a team of colonists, accompanied by her companion Lovelock, a mentally enhanced monkey with special powers and a thirst for freedom.
