"When zookeeper Theodora 'Teddy' Bentley fishes the body of Koala Kate out of Gunn Landing Harbor, she discovers that her fellow zookeeper didn't drown; she was strangled. The clues to Koala Kate's killer implicate other animal keepers at Gunn Zoo, including Outback Bill, marsupial keeper and Kate's Aussie ex-boyfriend; and Robin Chase, the big cat keeper who's got it in for Teddy. Also displaying suspicious behavior are several 'liveaboarders' at the harbor; Speak-To-Souls, a shady 'animal psychic'; and even Caro, Teddy's much-married, ex-beauty queen mother. But murderers aren't all Teddy has to worry about. Her embezzling father is still on the run from the Feds, and the motor on her houseboat is failing. To pay for the repairs, Teddy agrees to appear on a weekly live television broadcast featuring misbehaving animals that range from a cuddly koala to a panicky wallaby--and all hell breaks loose in the TV studio. All the while, the killer is narrowing in on Teddy...."--Dust cover flap.

I’ve decided to read these books for the characters and the human-animal interactions instead of the mystery. This time around it was so completely out of left field that I just gave up trying to figure it out. Either I don’t pay close enough attention, or there weren’t nearly enough clues to make it plausible.
