Bug Muldoon is a cynical private detective. And he's a beetle. Bug is working to crack a case involving a dangerous collaboration between some rogue ants and the wasps of The Garden. Along the way, he meets a host of detective-story cliches all expertly assigned to the perfect insects.
Take Shaky Jake, for instance. A twitchy housefly informant addicted to a delicious white powdery substance--sugar. Velma the sultry reporter is a long-legged grasshopper. And the Wasp Queen is delightfully nutso, moods swinging between sing-song cheerfulness and murderous psychosis in the span of a few words. She reminds me of Drusilla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series.
The rich characters make Bug Muldoon an immensely entertaining story for detective fans of all ages.
