2009 Winner of the Arizona Book Award for Mystery/Suspense


If Lucy, the pregnant Giant Anteater from Belize, didn't kill the man found dead in her enclosure at California's Gunn Zoo, who did? Zookeeper Teddy Bentley must find the real murderer before her furry friend is shipped off to another zoo in disgrace.


Then another human bites the dust, the monkeys riot, and the wolves go nuts. Things get worse when the snooty folks at Gunn Landing Harbor attempt to evict Teddy from the Merilee, her beloved houseboat.


That's just the beginning. Her father, on the lam from the Feds for embezzling millions, gets targeted by a local gangster; and Caro, Teddy's socialite and former beauty queen mother, who loathes Teddy's dangerous job, starts introducing her to eligible bachelors. Then Teddy herself becomes a target for murder.

About the Author:

As a journalist, Betty Webb interviewed U.S. presidents, astronauts, and Nobel Prize winners, as well as the homeless, dying, and polygamy runaways. The dark Lena Jones mysteries are based on stories she covered as a reporter. Betty's humorous Gunn Zoo series debuted with the critically acclaimed The Anteater of Death, followed by The Koala of Death. A book reviewer at Mystery Scene Magazine, Betty is a member of National Federation of Press Women, Mystery Writers of America, and the National Organization of Zoo Keepers. www.bettywebb-zoomystery.com

From AudioFile:

A wealthy zoo patron is found mauled and dead inside the enclosure of an anteater named Lucy. When Lucy is accused of the crime, her zookeeper, Teddy, believes she is innocent and begins her own investigation. Teddy is instantly likable, in part due to Hillary Huber's sardonic, scratchy voice, which complements this unconventional heroine. Huber excels when voicing Lucy's thoughts, and she makes all the animal characters sound believable, yet not human. Huber's quirky voice adds a heavy dose of sarcasm to Webb's snappy dialogue. While this sarcastic tone is great for the eccentric minor characters, it wears a bit thin as the principal narrative voice. J.T. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
