From the Publisher:
Abandoning her growing pack of lycanthropes in New Orleans, a werewolf hides the truth about her nature from her kind-hearted dog-catcher boyfriend, while her former leader, having fallen victim to a rival gang, poses as the adopted pet of a lonely suburban woman. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.

An ancient race of lycanthropes has survived to the present day, and its numbers are growing. Bent on dominance, rival factions are initiating the down-and-out of L.A. into their ranks. Caught in the middle are Anthony, a kindhearted, lovesick dogcatcher, and the object of his affection: a female werewolf who has abandoned her pack.

Annotation:
Toby Barlow's clever, sexy, Los Angeles noir has not one, but two twists: there are werewolves in it, and it's written in verse. Still despite the hybrid gimmickry, SHARP TEETH offers up all the pleasures of both hardboiled crime and the contemporary supernatural. The book's hero, Anthony, is a no-nonsense dogcatcher who finds himself caught between rival gangs of werewolves (called only "lycanthropes" here) and romantically involved with a dangerous femme fatale. Barlow's tale also functions as an edgy satire of modern America. Dog culture has always helped define the social classes at war in the city (pitbulls for the gangbangers, lapdogs for the glitterati), but Barlow takes it all a step further by literally transforming humans into their pets.

Praise

"Toby Barlow's briskly entertaining first book...roams predictably, if enjoyably, within the well-trodden dog park of Los Angeles noir.... Any great noir lives or dies by its stylishness, and SHARP TEETH has got that in spades." - Elizabeth Hand 04/20/2008
