Author(s): Tanya Landman
This is the fifth in the brilliantly addictive series of murder mysteries by an acclaimed and popular writer. When Poppy Fields and best friend Graham go on a weekend trip to the zoo, it soon becomes apparent that the staff there are not happy. Then one of them suddenly dies. And then another. And another...Someone's using the animals to do their dirty work for them, and the result is not pretty. Will the intrepid pair uncover the murderer before they, too, become dead meat? With strongly realized characters, fast-paced plots and a dash of wry humour, award-winning children's author Tanya Landman gives Agatha Christie a run for her money. It is reissued with a graphic new look by popular artist Scott Garrett.
