A horrendous crime sets off a disturbing chain of events that will force the citizens of Mollisan Town to debate profound issues of free will and destiny in this powerful tale from the internationally acclaimed Tim Davys.

In the Tourquai neighborhood of Mollisan Town, Superintendent Larry Bloodhound is the keeper of the peace and ruler of the streets. But there are others more powerful than he--a cadre of wealthy elite, including Oswald Vulture, who live above the law's reach.

When Vulture is found headless in his ornate office atop Mollisan Town's most exclusive building, Bloodhound knows he must take special care in the investigation. But with the head missing and no sign of a break-in or murder weapon, this just may be the perfect crime.

The search for answers leads Bloodhound and his team, Anna Lynx and Falcon Ecu--along with his closest friend, private detective Philip Mouse--deep into the exclusive, secretive world of Mollisan Town's most privileged. Who had the most to gain from Vulture's demise? His slithery and sexy secretary, Emanuelle Cobra? Or his seductive mistress, Jasmine Squirrel? And what about Igor Panda, a desperate gambler whose debts may have pushed him to do the unthinkable? But before he can find the truth, Bloodhound must face his own weaknesses.

As he did in "Amberville and Lanceheim," Tim Davys weaves an intricate plot around larger questions of human nature, exploring issues of fate, loyalty, good, and evil. As Bloodhound uncovers the secrets behind the world of stuffed animals, so, too, does Davys reveal greater truths about the world of humans.

Reviews

"The combination of stuffed animals and hard-boiled crime fiction is oddly compelling, and entertaining...The characters are fleshed out (plushed out?) with fallible character traits and secrets...Davys has created a unique place that is both strange and familiar."--Boston Globe The combination of stuffed animals and hard-boiled crime fiction is oddly compelling, and entertaining...The characters are fleshed out (plushed out?) with fallible character traits and secrets...Davys has created a unique place that is both strange and familiar. --Boston Globe"
