Stalking the Unicorn Publisher's Summary

It's New Year's Eve and the elf perched on John Justin Mallory's desk wants his missing unicorn back. And that's the easy part. Mallory's wife has run off with his partner, his detective business is in ruins, and the mob's out to get him. With so many wonderful things happening, Mallory decides that a case involving a trip from reality might not be so bad. After all, what more can he lose?

Mallory soon finds that he might lose it all as he enters a Manhattan that just couldn't be. Dodging nasty gnomes and mischievous felines (not to mention rampaging elephants down Fifth Avenue), he discovers that the malevolent demon Grundy also seeks the fabled beast, and will stop at nothing.

Mallory is no Philip Marlowe, and will have to do some pretty fancy footwork just to stay alive. For if the Grundy wins, not only Mallory's life but his world will be forfeit.

    It's Valentine's Day and private detective John Justin Mallory is planning on closing up the office early and taking his partner, Col. Winnifred Carruthers, out to dinner, since he's sure no one else will do so. But before he can turn off the lights and lock the door, a panic-stricken Buffalo Bill Brody visits them. It seems that the Eastminster pet show is being held the next day, and his dragon, Fluffy, the heavy favorite, has been kidnapped.
