Lucy, the pregnant Giant Anteater was framed. But California zookeeper Teddy Bentley must prove Lucy had nothing to do with the body found in her enclosure or her furry friend will be shipped off to another zoo in disgrace.

But Teddy has already given her heart to Sheriff Joe Rejas, a migrant worker's son. Zoo life, animal lore, and the leaky ups and downs of Central California Coast houseboat living create a thrilling backdrop for murder. Betty Webb is the author of the award-winning Lena Jones detective series. The Anteater of Death is first in a series of new Gunn Zoo mysteries. www.bettywebb-zoomystery.com
