Blurb: 
Eric Bear has it all: a successful career at Mollisan Town's most prestigious advertising firm, a beautiful wife, a blissful home. He knows he's been lucky; a while back, his life revolved around drugs, gambling, and a notorious crime boss named Nicholas Dove.

As Eric discovers, the past isn't as far away as he'd hoped. Dove and his henchmen are back, demanding his services one last time. Dove has heard he's on the Death List, and he wants Eric to save him. And if he doesn't, Eric's beloved wife, Emma Rabbit, will be torn apart, limb by limb. The problem is, no one--not Dove, not Eric--knows if the Death List really exists.

With his team from the old days in tow--sadistic male prostitute Sam Gazelle; sweet but dangerous Tom-Tom Crow; wily Snake Marke--Eric sets off to find the elusive list, a search that will take them from Mollisan Town's darkest underworld dens to its pinnacle of power. And Eric Bear will learn that nothing--and no one--in his world is what it seems.

Reminiscent of Animal Farm and The Big Sleep, and interlaced with greed, sex, and gangsters, Amberville depicts an alternate world that mirrors our own realities and moral concerns. entertaining and deeply thoughtful, it introduces a singular and promising new writer.
