“Audacious . . . [a] giddy thrill.” — Los Angeles Times

 “Weird? Obviously. But oddly gripping and convincing. ... Skip that evening Scotch and read this one stone-cold sober—it’s plenty trippy as is.” — Washington Post

Amberville, Tim Davys’s first novel about Mollisan Town and its stuffed animal inhabitants, is both a noir novel with an unusual cast and an utterly original meditation on good and evil. In the words of Brad Meltzer (bestselling author of The Book of Lies), “When you’re tired of run-of-the-mill fiction, it’s time to read Amberville... a mystery that’s completely original.”

From the Back Cover:

What does it mean to be bad?

Eric Bear has it all: a successful career, a beautiful wife, a blissful home. He knows he's been lucky; a while back, his life revolved around drugs, gambling, a gang of stuffed-animal thugs, and notorious crime boss Nicholas Dove.

But the past isn't as far away as Eric had hoped. Rumors are swirling that Dove is on the Death List and that he wants Eric to save him. If Eric fails to act, his beloved wife, Emma Rabbit, will be torn apart, limb by limb.

With a nod to the best of noir and the wisest of allegories, and interlaced with greed and gangsters, Amberville depicts an alternate world that mirrors our own realities and moral concerns, and reminds us of the inextricable link between good and evil.
