The Purging of Ruen

Book 1 - The Purging Of Ruen

In which Oscar battles a misguided echelon of authoritative animals to save a beautiful city from certain destruction.


When assigned to determine the cause of brewing tensions in the exclusive seaside city of Ruen, Oscar Teabag-Dooven discovers it’s on the brink of tearing itself apart. Things become complicated when it appears those responsible are in charge of running the place.

Drawn into a scandalous plot of insanity and greed, Oscar befriends the Dervy, a young revolutionary, by throwing her off a cliff, and Horace, an elderly doctor with a phobia of worming ointments. Together they battle Sedervitz Tappen-Noo and the Pyjami, in an attempt to save a beautiful city from certain destruction.

Things don’t go according to plan, however, because they don’t have one.


Attempting to eradicate an entire city’s council before hurling oneself off a cliff is odd behavior for anyone, let alone the daughter of a police chief. Nor is it helped by a determination to graffiti mis-spelt words with appalling grammar in her own manure.

Politely, Oscar pointed this out to her.

So she punched him and pushed him off his stool.
