Synopses & Reviews
Distraught over the suspicious death of his partner, dinosaur detective Vincent Rubio beats a trail to the office of Dr. Emil Vallardo, whose bizarre interspecies experiments may be the key to numerous murders and disappearances.
Eric Garcia pulls off this parallel dino world to a T (rex)...delicious...sly humor" USA Today
"Awesomely funny." Entertainment Weekly
"[An] awesomely funny debut novel.... Witty, fast-paced detective work makes for a good mystery, but the story's sly, seamlessly conceived dinosaur underworld contains all the elements of a cult classic." Rhonda J. Johnson, Entertainment Weekly
"A whimsical, surprisingly logical farce aimed at fans of Who Censored Roger Rabbit? And devotees of interspecies sex." Kirkus
"What would the world be like if the dinosaurs hadn't gone extinct? As this very funny book shows, for one thing, L.A. would be even weirder than it is now." Dave Barry
"Think you've seen it all? You're wrong. You've never read anything like Anonymous Rex. An incredible idea — brilliantly executed. Anonymous Rex is a true original, crackling with imagination, and more fun than growing your own goatee. And did I mention the interspecies sex?" Brad Meltzer
Vincent Rubio has a washed-up L.A. detective agency, lousy credit, and a dead partner--on top of an addiction to basil and a hard time keeping his long velociraptor tail in his latex human suit. A part of a secret society of dinosaurs disguised as humans who coexist in a parallel world, Vincent heads to New York on an arson investigation.
He's a P.I. with a tail, a gumshoe with claws. He's the first dinosaur detective-and he just might make all other crime-solvers extinct.
