    I just finished the remarkable _Amberville_, by Tim Davys, a hardboiled noir novel in the world of... stuffed animals. The novel is tersely and beautifully told, without sentimentality, and while the stuffed characters would seem unlikely mobsters, toughies, and molls, one soon gets used to the concept. Grab this one, it's original. Not Animal Farm but... Stuffed Hell.

    The inside cover indicates that the book appeared in Sweden a couple of years ago.

    I will post a review of it on MysteryFile some time next week.
