Private investigator Vincent Rubio is down on his luck: He's out of work. His car's been repossessed. He's been banned from The Council. His partner has died under mysterious circumstances. And his tail just won't stay put. Vincent is a dinosaur - a velociraptor, to be precise. The dinosaurs faked their extinction 65 million years ago and still roam the planet, wrapped up in convincing latex costumes that allow them to blend perfectly into human society. They are doctors, janitors, senators, and football players. When Vincent is called to investigate a two-bit case of arson at a hip dino nightclub, he discovers something much more sinister that lures him back to New York City, the scene of his partner's death and a dangerous nexus of dinosaur-human intermingling. Will Vincent solve the mystery of his partner's death? Will he kick his dangerous addiction to basil, or will he wind up in Herbaholics Anonymous? Will a gorgeous blonde chanteuse discover Vincent's true identity, jeopardizing both their lives?

"The plot is bizarre, the pace fast, and the cliches poignant. Charismatic and sensitive, Caulfield's performance enhances a human-reptile combo, inviting a cult following." ( AudioFile)
