The second installment in kid-lit star Jarrett J. Krosoczka’s monotreme police procedural, Platypus Police Squad

This is the city. Kalamazoo City. Platypuses work here. They carry a badge. They’re called the Platypus Police Squad.

Detectives Rick Zengo and Corey O’Malley might have just cracked KC’s illegal fish trade, but crime never sleeps in Kalamazoo City. This time, it strikes the Kalamazoo City Dome: the city’s newest attraction, the largest indoor/outdoor amusement complex in the country, and the shooting site for worldwide celebrity Chase Mercy’s newest blockbuster action film. The mayor has staked his reputation on making sure the grand opening goes just as planned—but the opening night is nothing short of a disaster, and the PPS suspects foul play. But will our two heroes be able to dig up the dirt on the Dome before anyone else is hurt?
