Buford the Bullfrog is dead. And that's only the beginning. Connor Westphal, the feisty deaf publisher of the weekly "Eureka!," jumps into the annual Jubilee festivities when her sidekick and main squeeze, private eye Dan Smith, is retained by Buford's jockey to find the murderer. With the help of Sheriff Elvis Mercer and the eccentric denizens of Flat Skunk, Connor and Dan think it'll be a snap, until the sheriff's son Jeremiah comes under suspicion and a human body surfaces in Critter's Creek, along with a lot more dead frogs. Connor, with the aid of a new blind friend, sets about finding out who is killing the frogs and people of Calaveras County.

No one really cared for arrogant, double-dealing Dakota (good with frogs, bad with people), but as everyone in Flat Skunk knows, Jeremiah Mercer, the sheriff's son, cared for him least of all—in part because his frogs so often finished second to Dakota's.
