Terry Mitchum's book Tooth and Claw is a detective novel. However, it is not like other detective novels. This one is set in a land where there are no humans, just animals...
Rex is a down on his luck ex-cop who is struggling to make ends meet as a private investigator. He drinks too much, smokes too much, and is carrying a bit too much weight on his body due to all the dog biscuits he eats. Yes, dog biscuits. Rex is a Corgi.
Ziva, a Zebra with a lot of cash and a problem, hires him to find her sister Ayani who has gone missing. Has she gone missing through choice or has someone taken her? If so, why?
Rex is battling with his conscience over the death of his partner while on the force, and now goes into battle with the Dobermans and Rottweilers of the Donati crime family as he tries to work out what has happened to Ayani.
His starting point is a fight at a club between Cats, Dogs, and Cobras that turned deadly. Is it connected? And what happened to the Zebra waitress that was there on the night in question?
Will Rex get to the bottom of things and solve the disappearance of Ayani? Or will the city of Oldsburg, red in tooth and claw, claim another victim?
