The Koala of Death: A Gunn Zoo Mystery
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: August 2010
Duration: 9 hours 13 minutes
When zookeeper Theodora 'Teddy' Bentley fishes the body of Koala Kate out of Gunn Landing Harbor, she discovers that her fellow zookeeper didn't drown; she was strangled. The clues to Koala Kate's killer implicate other animal keepers at the Gunn Zoo, including Outback Bill, marsupial keeper and Kate's Aussie ex-boyfriend; and Robin Chase, the big cat keeper who's got it in for Teddy. Also displaying suspicious behavior are a shady 'animal psychic' and even Caro, Teddy's much-married, ex'beauty queen mother. Meanwhile, to pay for repairs on the motor on her beloved houseboat, Teddy agrees to appear on a weekly live television broadcast featuring misbehaving animals. Between a cuddly koala, a panicky wallaby, and a killer zeroing in on her, all hell is about to break loose.
