Tuning forks, thugs in plaid cummerbunds, digital TV, a dead biker, a stuffed loon and an old cartoon show? What's all this got to do with a ratty old squirrel puppet? That's the Pipsqueak story, featuring Garth Carson, a New York City taxidermy collector, and his gal Angie. After a murderous melee in an obscure antique store, the puppet goes missing and they find themselves entangled in a deadly swing band conspiracy and Soviet-era secrets. "...the wildest mystery to come down the pike in a stuffed squirrel's age." --Publishers Weekly "The flat-out coolest mystery I've read in years, not to mention the funniest. Brian Wiprud is either a genius or a lunatic. Or maybe both." --Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-winning author of North of Nowhere and the Alex McKnight series "Splendidly kooky with a sharp dressing, sharp-witted characters woven into a wicked conspiracy theory." --Chris Niles, author of Hell's Kitchen "The Nick and Nora of taxidermy meet the Maltese Falcon--er--Squirrel in another crazy, funny mystery by Brian M. Wiprud." --Sparkle Hayter, author of The Last Manly Man "'Zany,' 'madcap,' and 'romp' must have been invented specifically for Wiprud's smart and funny Pipsqueak. A lunatic, super-fast mystery."
