This short little novella is told from varying view points, and one of them a lizard who, in another life, was a human. It is a murder mystery involving the chameleon, an albino, a woman, and a mysterious foreigner. Interwoven in the story is memories, fantasies, and realities. The chameleon is central to the story and witnesses all the characters and their interactions with each other.
This is a cute little book. It was a quick read - and like most novellas, it isn't long enough for me to get invested in the characters. But it is well written and easy to follow and I enjoyed it.
