Publisher's Summary

When zookeeper Theodora “Teddy” Bentley fishes the body of Koala Kate out of Gunn Landing Harbor, she discovers that her fellow zookeeper didn’t drown; she was strangled. The clues to Koala Kate’s killer implicate other animal keepers at the Gunn Zoo, including Outback Bill, marsupial keeper and Kate’s Aussie ex-boyfriend; and Robin Chase, the big cat keeper who’s got it in for Teddy. Also displaying suspicious behavior are a shady “animal psychic” and even Caro, Teddy’s much-married, ex-beauty queen mother.

Meanwhile, to pay for repairs on the motor on her beloved houseboat, Teddy agrees to appear on a weekly live television broadcast featuring misbehaving animals. Between a cuddly koala, a panicky wallaby, and a killer zeroing in on her, all hell is about to break loose....

What the Critics Say

“From mucking out the cages to carrying a lemur with a loose sphincter onto a TV set, Teddy’s adventures will appeal to fans of animal-themed cozies.” (Library Journal)

“Teddy’s second case showcases an engaging array of quirky characters, human and animal.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Playful. Webb warmly evokes the unconventional worlds of zoo and marina. Readers don't even have to be animal lovers to enjoy watching, say, a pushy television host get her comeuppance from a mischievous lemur.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "I wish Audible had more of this series"

    This is a good series. I stumbled on to it late but I'm glad I did. The story presents a realistic plot with likable characters. The zoo setting is unique and gives the average reader insight to the workings of a zoo, as well as the animals who live there. The narrator does a good job of bringing the characters alive and giving them personality. I also like the development of Teddy and Joe's relationship. The author does a good job of showing their personal life without making it a central focus of the story. This is a very good book. If you have time to listen to it, you should give it a try.

    "Another Winner!"

    I love this series! Wonderful characters and entertaining story lines. I've already downloaded the next one - Llama of Death - and it's on my MP3 player! The narrator is completely enjoyable to listen to and makes the story. I highly recommend you give this series a listen.
