A boy gets killed and the suspect has gone missing. But is this a normal victim and a normal killer? No. Travis is a were-armadillo and Ruby is a were-cat. This paranormal mystery is told from three different points of view: Yoshi, a were-cat and Ruby’s brother; Aimee, a human; and Clyde, a were-possum. Travis’ ghost only reveals himself to Clyde and tells him the events of his murder.
