A witty philosophical murder
mystery with a charming twist: the crack detectives are sheep determined to discover
who killed their beloved shepherd.
On a hillside near the cozy
Irish village of Glennkill, the members of the flock gather around their
shepherd, George, whose body lies pinned to the ground with a spade. George has
cared for the sheep, reading them a plethora of books every night. The daily
exposure to literature has made them far savvier about the workings of the
human mind than your average sheep. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in
Glennkill (and possibly the world), they set out to find George’s killer.
The A-team of investigators
includes Othello, the “bad-boy” black ram; Mopple the Whale, a merino who eats
a lot and remembers everything; and Zora, a pensive, black-faced ewe with a
weakness for abysses. Joined by other members of the richly talented flock,
they engage in nightlong discussions about the crime and wild metaphysical
speculations, and they embark on reconnaissance missions into the village,
where they encounter some likely suspects. There’s Ham, the terrifying butcher;
Rebecca, a village newcomer with a secret and a scheme; Gabriel, the shady
shepherd of a very odd flock; and Father Will, a sinister priest. Along the
way, the sheep confront their own all-too-human struggles with guilt, misdeeds,
and unrequited love.
