Publisher's Summary

If Lucy, the pregnant giant anteater from Belize, didn't kill the man found dead in her enclosure, who did? California 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, the wolves go nuts - and that's just the beginning. Teddy's father, on the lam from the feds for embezzling millions, gets targeted by a local gangster. Her socialite mother, Caro, a former beauty queen who loathes Teddy's dangerous job, starts introducing her to "eligible bachelors"; but Teddy has already given her heart to Sheriff Joe Rejas, a migrant worker's son. Caro is not pleased.

Zoo life, animal lore, and the leaky ups and downs of California central-coast houseboat living create a thrilling backdrop for murder.

    I enjoy Scandinavian mystery and crime authors like Asa Larsson, Helene Tursten, Jo Nesbo, Karin Fossum and Amaaldur Indridason just to name a few.

    "Loved It!"

    This is a new series for me. I saw the 3rd book (The Llama of Death) in the Coming Soon category, liked the description and downloaded this - the first book of the series. It's wonderful! I've already downloaded book 2 (The Koala of Death) and can't wait to read more about Teddy and her friends at the Gunn Zoo! This is a wholesome story with a very talented narrator too! You owe it to yourself to give it a try.

    "Surprisingly good"

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Anteater of Death. It actually has two sources of suspense: the murders that Teddy sets out to investigate, and the daily active life of zoo animals. There are the incidents with the anteater, who I never thought of as a dangerous animal before this book, as well as the incidents with a bear, a child falls into the bear pit, and wolves, a mated pair of wolves have a bloody lovers' quarrel. The author does a good job of comparing human relationships with animal relationships. Through it all Teddy remains calm, in control, and above all puts the animals first. Betty Webb does a good job of creating villains and likeable characters. Hillary Hubbard also does a good job of making the voices different so that the characters had their own individual voices. This is a good book to read while driving or doing house work.
