A fun, light hearted detective story set in a world where dinosaurs live among us, disguised as humans. Silly, but the prose lets it work, and I enjoyed it.

I'm not much at doing reviews, but I'll give it a try.

Vincent Rubio is the consumate detective-noir...with a twist. Vincent Rubio is a modern-day Velociraptor, living in L.A. He is one of thousands of dinosaurs, who dress up every day and, inside their disguises, function as a part of human society.

In his first novel, Eric Garcia has created a monster...literally. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. When other novelists flood their novels with graphic sex and vulgarity, Garcia uses only enough to to make the story (two sex scenes, and one character who would make a sailor blush).

This book definitely gets two claws up :o)

Very funny and quirky. The jacket calls it a "cult classic." Think of Dashiel Hammett as a dinosaur! The author imagines a society that includes dinosaurs which are not extinct. They actually became part of the human population by developing various guises. Of course humans don't know a person is actually a dino, but fello dinos know because of the smell. Really different and fun.
