The Puffin of Death by Betty Webb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have never been to Iceland until I read "The Puffin of Death" by Betty Webb
An adventure, Teddy gets to travel with an expense account to pick up critters for the Gunn Zoo's new Northern Climes exhibit. Their new habitat will welcome a baby polar bear, and a few other pairs. How difficult can it be to learn about the orphaned polar bear, and get it back to Gunn Zoo?
It is never boring with Teddy (Theodora Bentley) along.
Betty Webb is a story master. Suspense and mystery are rife throughout the book. I never guessed who the bad guys or good guys were.
The final reveal is a shocker, and I love when an author can do that.
Plots and subplots, puffins, strange birds. Zoo employees, birders, police, a best selling author and artists bring a steamy cast and complex buffet of intrigue.
Romance teeters on the edge of fun and mayhem. Never one to venture outside of The States, I am curious about Iceland, and put it on my bucket list.
A constant reader.
