Description

Eric Bear thinks he has escaped his violent past, but when crime boss Nicholas Dove threatens Eric's beloved wife Emma Rabbit, Eric has no choice but to do what he asks: find a way to remove Dove's name from the Death List. Problem is, no one knows if the Death List really exists. Nevertheless, Eric gathers his old team together - sadistic male prostitute Sam Gazelle, sweet but dangerous Tom-Tom Crow, and wily Snake Marek - and they set off to find the elusive list. What Eric learns will forever change the way he thinks about his life, his family, and his town.show more

Review quote

"This genre-busting curiosity is already a hit in the US . . . Watership Down with car chases." * Telegraph * "Utterly believable . . . a lot of fun." * Financial Times * "True identities constantly shift in this world -- lovers might be enemies, priests can be evil, and stuffed animals, given the depth and intellect that Davys gives them, may as well be human" * Chicago Sun-Times * "Oddly gripping and convincing ... Skip that evening Scotch and read this one stone-cold sober -- it's plenty trippy as is" * Washington Post * "A delightful mystery-thriller set in a city populated by stuffed animals...dastardly fun to read" * San Francisco Chronicle *show more
