Teddy returns as keeper of the Gunn Zoo in coastal California. She is a liveaboarder in the harbor, living in a converted trawler. The night after a party on a neighboring boat, a party that included many of her co-workers, her morning routine is disrupted by the discovery of a body overboard. It turns out to be another keeper, Kate Nido. Kate's job included publicity and public relations for the zoo.
Teddy's Sherrif boyfriend and her rich, socialite mother spend their time encouraging/entreating Teddy to move out of the harbor and NOT get involved in snooping around...to no avail. Teddy is given much of Kate's public relations job and Teddy discovers many intruiging facts which end in an exciting confrontation with a heartless murderer.
This book had lots of animal interaction and facts intertwined effectivley with the action. There were some very funny scenes of animals on television doing what comes natually (which usually incluces poo). Well written and very witty, this was an enjoyable book.
