Plot summary

While watchmaker and sporadic detective-mouse Hermux Tantamoq is planning his wedding to the aviator Linka Perflinger, multi-millionaire Androse De Rosenquill sends for him and asks him to find a missing squirrel. At the same time, the cosmetics boss Tucka Mertslin is scheming with an unprincipled scientist against a rival cosmetician. A beautiful garden is vandalized, and a body is found which no one recognizes. As Hermux carefully pursues his task, he finds unexpected connections.

The familiar cast of rodents, insects, and others from the three previous Hermux Tantamoq books now includes Thirxen Ghoulter, a coroner whose profession is taxidermy.

Terfle is Hermux's smart pet ladybug, who travels with him and likes to eat jelly and dried aphids.
