Synopsis

When the actor playing Rambunctious Rabbit - the mascot of Lamaar Studio's Familyland theme park - is brutally murdered on park grounds, LAPD detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs are brought in to investigate. Asked to keep the investigation under wraps in order to protect Lamaar's idyllic image, Lomax and Biggs face a dilemma when a second - and then a third - brutal murder takes place and they uncover a conspiracy to destroy one of the country's largest entertainment conglomerates. Written in sharp, comedic prose, The Rabbit Factory introduces a fresh set of cops to the mystery genre.

The publisher's blurb on playwright and screenplay writer Karp's first novel, "The hilarious and suspenseful introduction of Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs," makes the two LAPD detectives sound as if they're the reincarnation of the Keystone Kops.

Monsters and Critics

He has created two LAPD cops, Mike Lomax and his partner Terry Biggs, who are smart, drop-dead funny (especially Terry), and as irreverent as two guys can be.
