A homeless man, Richard Starr, sees a terrified woman struggling in rain-swollen Black Creek. As he reaches to pull her ashore she suddenly sinks in the murky water. He dives into the creek but can't find her. Neither can the police. They dismiss his report as a hoax. Later, Richard learns that his friend, Joe Baker, had been attacked. Joe told a mutual acquaintance he was sleeping under a bridge when the unknown assailant struck. At the time, it was dark, and Joe was drunk and disoriented, so he couldn't tell what was going on, except that he was being dragged into the creek. The assailant broke off the attack and escaped into the water after Joe clobbered him with a baseball bat. Now, Joe is missing. That night, Richard is sitting under the bridge while a thunderstorm rages. During intermittent bursts of lightning, he sees a boy being attacked. He rushes to help the kid but finds no one at the scene of the attack. Seeking an explanation for the mysterious events, he follows clues left by the boy and discovers a bizarre world dominated by terrifying creatures, bent on inflicting unthinkable horrors on him and on Humankind.

Enter the deadly safari and hunt down a blood-thirsty killer! When twenty-three lions, tigers, and ligers—a giant hybrid cat—appear in rural Idaho, town officials decide to hold the first safari in America. Only police chief Jackson Hobbs, a man haunted by loss and tragedy, and Katy Osborne, a talented hunting guide, seem to realize the potential danger of this situation. With the town desperate for money, the mayor, who also happens to be Jackson’s ex-wife, and her boyfriend are adamant that the Idaho Lion Hunt go forward even after people are killed. As the death toll rises and his own family is put at risk, Jackson must cope with a town doubled in population, the activity of a local antigovernment militia, a willful teenage daughter, an animal rescue group, a missing young boy, a dead state trooper, and Katy’s desire to save a rare liger named Kali. Betrayal blossoms alongside romance as Jackson gets closer and closer to discovering the identity of those who engineered this predator panic.

Moses, the main character of Santa Claws, discovers sex and the verity of Freud's insight, finds out about death and the cruelty of consciousness, loses his mind and realizes that desperation is clawed, accepts the fact that we are all going to die and that life is short. Using hard-nosed, funny, succinct narrative, spangled with epigrammatic short stories, striving essays, contemplative poetry, playful plays and empirical studies, the novel intimates a singular Moses; one who does not rise to lead anybody—he practically despises everyone save Sophie and certain fury creatures—retreating inwards to fight the inevitable. Savvy readers will be interested by this novel; those not afraid to be shocked, mocked and challenged; those ready to be saddened and disappointed; those looking for some bemusement coupled with existential angst; those tired of fleeting romanticism and religious dogma.
