From the cover:
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 who live above the law's reach, including Oswald Vulture. 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. In fact, he can't even call the death a murder because if Bloodhound can find the missing head, it might be possible to reattach it to the victim - and discover what happened and who was involved.
The search for answers leads to Bloodhound and his team, Anna Lynx and Falcon Ecu - along with his closest friend, private investigator Pillip 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 desprate gambler whose debts may have pushed him to do the unthinkable?
This is Davys second book in the series, following Amberville. It's set to be released Feb. 15, 2011.
