Description

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 from limb, and reduced to stuffing.

With a nod to the best of noir and the wisest of allegories--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.

Review quote

A delightful mystery-thriller set in a city populated by stuffed animals. [It] is dastardly fun to read. Once the whoa - this is weird reaction subsides, Amberville is a nifty rollick that s as bracing as a good shot of whisky. --San Francisco Chronicle"
