"[An] audacious concept. . . . [A] giddy thrill." —Los Angeles Times 

"Weird? Obviously. . . . There’s more than stuffing here, though, including questions of good vs. evil, life vs. death, and sanity vs. insanity. Skip that evening Scotch and read this one stone-cold sober—it’s plenty trippy as is." —Washington Post on Amberville

A horrific crime sets off a disturbing chain of events in Tim Davy’s Mollisan Town. Like George Orwell’s Animal Farm, as well as the allegorical worlds of Neil Gaiman and Jasper Fforde, this sinister sequel to Lanceheim and Amberville illuminates our reality through a giddy paradoxical conceit—as in Tourquai, the stuffed animals who populate Mollisan Town will be forced to confront the deepest issues of love and servitude, free will and destiny, life and death.

Editorial Reviews

“The combination of stuffed animals and hard-boiled crime fiction is oddly compelling, and entertaining...The characters are fleshed out (plushed out?) with fallible character traits and secrets...Davys has created a unique place that is both strange and familiar.”
