    1. In Tourquai, Oswald Vulture has his head cut-off and the police, namely superintendent Larry Bloodhound, is determined to find out who did it. There are plenty of suspects, including: Vulture's secretary, Emanuelle Cobra; his mistress, Jasmine Squirrel; and Igor Panda, a degenerate gambler. Besides looking for the culprit, Bloodhound is also really intent on finding the head. Because if he can do that, it can be reattached and he can discover once and for all what happened. Reattached? Yep. Did [...]

    2. Tourquai is a classic murder mystery except that the story takes place in a town of stuffed animals. Moving, breathing, eating and loving stuffed animals. Yes, they are just like people but not quite. For instance, although the victim, Oswald Vulture,’s head was chopped off, he’s dead and he isn’t. If his head can be found back, it may be sewn on again and then he will be as alive as ever!But Vulture is leaving behind a lot of money and that’s good news for a number of people, all of whi [...]

    3. I confessI didn't know what to expect when I opened Tourquai: A Novel by Tim Davys. I knew it was a detective-type mystery and that it was the author's third in a series of four books. The books stand-alone but are in the same imaginary fictional region (an area w/ four districtseach is the title of a novel). What I didn't realize was that the characters are all stuffed animals. Honestly, I'm not certain why the author made that decision. It actually isn't as distracting as one might expect and [...]

    4. Not as strong as the previous novels by Tim Davys. Still enjoyable, some characters are perfectly constructed in dialogue and narration. The overall story lacks a bit of consistency to keep me, as a reader, emerged. Must read, of course, if you enjoy Tim Davys' work.Maybe the experience is more pleasant with some herbal influences?

    5. I put this down because I had zero desire to read it once I started. It was distracting to read about stuffed animals that cussed and committed crimes.
