It seems the disaurs faked their extinction 65 million years ago and still roam the earth, disguised in convincing latex costumes that help them blend perfectly into human society. A heightened sense of smell allows the dis to detect one ather--Vincent's got an odor like a tasty Cuban cigar!When Vincent is called to investigate a two-bit case of arson at a hip di nightclub, he discovers something much more sinister, which lures him back to New York City--the scene of his partner's death and a dangerous nexus of disaur and human intermingling. Will Vincent solve the mystery of his partner's death? Will a gorgeous blond chanteuse discover his true identity, jeopardizing both their lives? Will Vincent be able to conquer his dangerous addiction to basil, or will he wind up in Herbaholics Anymous? Will he find true love, or resort to crumpled issues of Stegolicious?.Somewhere between Jurassic Park and L.A.

Now, with Casual Rex, the sharpest disaur-detective in Los Angeles is back, funnier and grittier than ever, for the next tale in this acclaimed series.Vincent Rubio is a private eye, working the angles in Los Angeles with his partner, Ernie. They've got the usual problems bills, bum cases, woman troubles. But being disaurs is t a problem, as long as their latex disguises fit properly.Not all disaurs agree. Some have joined a mysterious back-to-basics movement led by a beautiful and beguiling Velociraptor to help disaurs find themselves, let their tails hang out, and roam about as they really are. When a member of this cult dies under suspicious circumstances, Vincent and Ernie must investigate, while simultaneously handling the case of the missing Mussolini the theft of a rare and priceless prosthetic penis treasured in the disaur community.With Casual Rex, Eric Garcia takes readers even more deeply into this warped underworld and succeeds in making it all believable. The result is a vel that is as hilarious and entertaining as it is original.
