Iris Oakley, a young zookeeper at the Finley Memorial Zoo, hopes to reconcile with her newly sober husband, Rick. But when he’s found dead drunk—and dead—in the lion exhibit, a paralyzing mix of grief and anger keeps Iris from questioning the assumptions around his death. But Iris’ friends motivate her to prove that her husband could not have died the way it appears. Meanwhile, Iris must also adjust to losing her beloved job as feline keeper and instead learn to be a bird keeper. The zoo’s veterinarian respects her skills, but the foreman and senior bird-keep seem to prefer that she get a job elsewhere. After Iris survives a series of near-fatal “accidents,” she begins to understand what really happened to Rick. But first Iris must survive to prove it.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Convincingly and affectionately evokes its animal-friendly setting. Call it a zoo cozy.” Seattle Times
“The highly original setting is a plus.” Publishers Weekly
“Cassandra Campbell provides the perfect voice for the passionate young woman, deftly capturing her emotions after her husband dies…Campbell lightens or thickens her voice slightly for other characters but filters them all through Iris’ own plaintive psyche, delicately adding nuances of uncertainty where appropriate.” AudioFile
“This strong debut by a former zookeeper gives readers a look at the world of zoos while offering an involving mystery plot. Both animal lovers and mystery fans will enjoy it.” Booklist
“[A] wealth of behind-the-scenes detail smoothly integrated into the puzzle makes this a promising debut.” Kirkus Reviews
