Intrigue, murder, and a town full of suspects will test Wilhelmina “Willy” Boden’s investigative skills as an outsider in Peculiar.


When an anonymous whistleblower from Peculiar, Missouri alleges that the mayor’s wife is a fraud, the Shifter Tri-State Council decides to send me in to investigate. Problem is, I like the people in this town, and I don’t want to betray any of them…especially a certain handsome werecoyote named Brady Corman.

Unfortunately, I don’t get paid to make friends or dates.

But when the local pain-in-the-ass aka “the whistleblower” is found dead, and both the town’s beloved Sheriff and Brady’s teenaged son are prime suspects, along with half the town, I have to investigate.

As much as I’d like to ignore the evidence, my sense of duty won’t let me turn a blind eye to injustice. My loyalty to my friends will be tested and my relationship with Brady may be over before it even begins.

What’s a werebobcat to do when my instincts tell her one thing and my heart the exact opposite?
