About this title

Synopsis:

The hilarious and suspenseful introduction of Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs.

Welcome to Familyland, an offshoot of Lamaar Studios. Once a small, Southern California animation house, it has grown into an entertainment conglomerate encompassing movies, television, music, video games, and a sprawling theme park.

When an actor portraying Familyland?s beloved mascot, Rambunctious Rabbit, is brutally murdered on park grounds, Lamaar executives are worried that the idyllic image of ?50s America represented in Familyland will be shattered. They ask Mike Lomax and his partner Terry Biggs, the LAPD detectives assigned to solve the case, to keep the circumstances surrounding the death of their mascot quiet.

When a second Lamaar employee is killed, Lomax and Biggs uncover a conspiracy to destroy Familyland and settle an unknown vendetta. Still under pressure to keep the case away from the public eye, the detectives are met with a third murder ? and an outrageous demand: Anyone who associates with Lamaar ? employees, customers, anyone ? will be killed.

Bringing a fresh duo of cops to the thriller set, The Rabbit Factory is both suspenseful and satiric, a taut mystery wrapped in sharp, comedic prose.

Recensione:

??the comedy never overshadows this smart, many-layered thriller?[with] a clever plot that will keep readers guessing to the very end. Enthusiastic readers will anxiously await the return of detectives Lomax and Biggs.?
? Publishers Weekly (starred)

??irresistible and often poignant?Like the best of Donald Westlake and Carl Hiaasen, The Rabbit Factory is deftly plotted and deliciously askew.?
? Booklist (starred)

"Marshall Karp could well be the Carl Hiaasen of Los Angeles ? only I think he's even funnier. The Rabbit Factory will touch your funny bone, and your heart."
?James Patterson, best-selling author of Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls
