“The man told her that he saw a huge cat-like beast with large padded feet and a long ginger tail. He said the hellcat prowled twenty feet from his hiding place, so he waited — like a pilgrim on his knees — in prayerful stillness. He forgot all about his discomfort as the fabulous fiery animal skulked across the vista to bathe in a mysterious golden light. The man felt convinced the creature was a harbinger of some terrible future event.” Extract from Moondog and the Reed Leopard
A bored teenager seeks help from Moondog.
Moondog is a Romani detective. He is called when other investigators hesitate. He inquires into things that lay beyond normal human experience, and where things hang in the balance between mundane and miraculous. Moondog does not work well with others… But now he must join Hopie, because the citizens of Hugh-Lupus are tormented by a miscellany of evil.
“Hopie admitted she got a kick from all the secret skullduggery and maneuvering involved… she felt thrilled to be permitted to join Moondog’s clandestine world — a world of double-bamboozling and slippery-slick chicanery. On the other hand, she knew it wasn’t likely that she’d meet his expectations…” Extract from Moondog and the Reed Leopard
“She’d experienced an indefinable moment. It had truly been one of the most electrifying happenings of her life. She knew she’d appreciate it forever, appreciate him forever…”
