The Greater Garden juridiction has erupted into a hotbed of crime, where beer traps and winged predators threaten unsuspecting, law-abiding citizens. Every police officer turns a wary eyestalk to the sky, where death looms under the soles of the lightning-fast giants who roam the territory.
Called on an accidental heat-death, the best sleuth of the GGPD suspects a foul play. Officer Gowoon slogs her way through a murder investigation while having to ward off mating attempts from colleagues. Fortunately, she can count on brawny Zgouish for assistance, even if his bad-slogger charm instills fuzzy feelings under her shell...
Murder, beer-smuggling, corruption, steamy passions... your backyard garden has never been so interesting!
"Laframboise does an excellent job of translating the rhythm and feel of the typical murder mystery into the realities of a snail’s eye view. The story is clever and effectively conveys the point of view of the snails and the various limitations and talents available to them."
