What does it mean to be bad?

Eric Bear has it all: a successful career, a beautiful wife, a blissful home. He knows he''s been lucky; a while back, his life revolved around drugs, gambling, a gang of stuffed-animal thugs, and notorious crime boss Nicholas Dove.

But the past isn''t as far away as Eric had hoped. Rumors are swirling that Dove is on the Death List and that he wants Eric to save him. If Eric fails to act, his beloved wife, Emma Rabbit, will be torn apart, limb from limb, and reduced to stuffing.

With a nod to the best of noir and the wisest of allegories--interlaced with greed and gangsters--"Amberville" depicts an alternate world that mirrors our own realities and moral concerns, and reminds us of the inextricable link between good and evil.

Annotation:
A bizarre Swedish novel, AMBERVILLE is a hard-boiled noir that takes place in a town where the inhabitants--mobsters, detectives, killers, etc.--are all stuffed animals.

Praise

"No character in AMBERVILLE is quite what he or she seems, and each offers a meditation on truth, power, the value of goodness, and the nature of evil." 02/01/2009

"The publisher describes it as THE BIG SLEEP meets ANIMAL FARM, and, frankly, we can't do better than that." (starred review) - Keir Graff 02/15/2009

"[T]his debut by someone calling him or herself Tim Davys (the author's identity is a secret, allegedly because s/he is a public figure) is dastardly fun to read." - Laurel Maury 03/01/2009
