From #1 New York Times bestselling author Aaron Reynolds comes the third hilariously macabre mystery in The Incredibly Dead Pets of Rex Dexter series.
My name is Rex Dexter.
Yes. THAT Rex Dexter. The one cursed with the ability to see and talk to dead animals. The solver of atrocities against the four-footed. The savior of the flipper-finned. Save your standing ovation for later, because I have bigger things on my mind.
Rabbits. Specifically, dead rabbits.
And not just anybunny. This particular gaggle of rabbits once belonged to the Astounding Isabel, Middling Falls’ foremost birthday party magician. One thing has quickly become clear…somebunny hates magic. Whoever it is, they’re attempting to put the Astounding Isabel out of the birthday biz for good. And they’re willing to whack a whole lotta bunnies to do it.
It’s a cold cruel world out there. But don’t worry. I’m on the case. And so is Darvish. And Drumstick. And possibly several dozen rabbits. The point is, nobunny pulls one over on Rex Dexter…and his best friend…and his dead chicken.
