Abstract:

It's Valentine's Day, and private detective John Justin Mallory is planning on closing up the office early and taking his partner, Col. Winnifred Carruthers, out to dinner since he is sure no one else will do so. But before he can turn off the lights and lock the door, he is visited by a panic-stricken Buffalo Bill Brody. It seems that the Eastminster pet show is being held the next day, and his dragon Fluffy, the heavy favorite, has been kidnapped. Mallory's nocturnal hunt for the tiny dragon takes him to some of the stranger sections of this Manhattan, and as he follows the leads and hunts for clues, he comes up against one dead end after another. Along the way he meets a few old friends and enemies, a host of strange new inhabitants of this otherworldly Manhattan, and the most unique cell phone in all of fantastic literature. Aided by Felina (the office cat-person), a Samurai goblin, and a zombie named Dead End Dugan, Mallory and his unlikely crew have only one night to find a tiny dragon that is hidden somewhere in a city of seven million.
