Seamus is a shamus – a private investigator who just happens to be a turkey – and a little down on his luck. When Ms Ermine – a fur-coat wearing cat with plenty of cash – asks Seamus to take on a case investigating some shady characters, he jumps at the chance. What luck! But what follows is a dark, clever and hilarious tale of murder, conspiracy and crooked creatures. A playful and brilliantly funny take on detective noir fiction with an all-animal cast of characters.
Published October 2019 by Little Island Books and written by debut author, Jed Lynch. The story line has a wonderful imagination with fantastic characterisations, especially my favourite, the dodgy nightclub ‘pig’ bouncers. The whole book plays out with a great sense of Irish humour and I highly recommend it for all ages!
This is my first time illustrating for this innovative, independent, Irish publisher and I loved it. With pretty much free rein, I illustrated 20 black and white illustrations plus the cover.
It’s available in most of the major online bookstores.
