The Album of Dr. MoreauDaryl Gregory
science fiction, mystery
It’s 2001, and the WyldBoyZ are the hottest boy band in the world, and definitely the only genetically engineered human-animal hybrid vocal group rescued from a secret science barge.
When their producer, Dr. M, is found murdered, the “boyz” are the prime suspects. Was it Bobby the ocelot (“the bad boy”), Devin the bonobo (“the romantic one”), Matt the megabat (“the funny one”), or Tusk the elephant (“the smart one”)?
Las Vegas Detective Luce Delgado has only twenty-four hours to solve a case that extends all the way back to the secret science barge where the boyz and their journey first began.
Daryl Gregory's first novel, Pandemonium, was published in 2008 and won the 2009 Crawford Award, given each year by critics and scholars of the fantasy field to "an oustanding new fantasy writer whose first book was published the previous year."
