The police struggle to conclude whether or not the death was accidental, but it's not the only recent, unexplained happening at Avery Zoo. Since the tragic, avoidable death of a serval, animal rights activists have plagued the zoo. Activists with a reputation for extremism. Do they have something to do with the penguin keeper's demise?
Madi also has her suspicions about two new zoo employees, but what exactly do they have to do with the goings on? Are they activist spies, or do they have their own scores to settle?
By the time Madi figures out things are not as they seem, she's already in too deep. Someone has a hidden agenda, and they're willing to kill to keep it a secret.
*No cliffhangers, this novel can be read as a standalone.*

The setting for this story is Avery Zoo and is told from Madigan’s point of view. Madi, as she is called, is one of the zoo keepers who has a certain group of animals that she looks after. Bats, feral cats and something I’d never heard of. Not to mention the ones she gets saddled with when one of the other zookeepers are absent. She goes in one morning and notices something odd at the penguin enclosure and when she investigates she finds one of the other zookeepers face down in the penguin pool, dead. This starts a rather involved story of murder and intrigue with Madi right in the middle. Very interesting and not your average murder mystery.
