The First Garth Carson Novel
- Winner of the Lefty Award for Most Humorous Mystery Crime Novel
- A Barry Award Nominee


"Demented and fun! This book is a hoot!"
—Harlan Coben, author of Gone for Good, Tell No One and the Myron Bolitar series.

PIPSQUEAK is a novel about a New York taxidermy/collectibles dealer and his gal Angie at odds with a swing-band conspiracy to undo the information age. It all centers on the murder of a biker, a mysterious brawny red head and a stolen TV squirrel puppet named Pipsqueak. Garth's black-sheep brother Nicholas gets in the mix, and embroils Garth and Angie in a search for Pipsqueak that entangles them in a violent anti-technology cult fronted by a pontifical bandleader. Is Pipsqueak the key to a government-sanctioned mind control scheme via high-definition TV? Not if Garth has anything to say about it.
