Anonymous Rex (novel)
- This is about the novel Anonymous Rex and its sequels. For the TV-movie, see Anonymous Rex (movie).
The series centers on Vincent Rubio, an underemployed private eye who happens to be a velociraptor.
So far there are three novels.
The story opens a year after the loss of his partner, Ernie. Vincent's boss hopes a simple job will help him get back on his feet, and assigns him to investigate a case of arson. But the more Vincent investigates, the more the case ties in with the one that killed his partner.
A prequel to the first novel, it tells the story of the last case Ernie and Vincent worked on together. They investigate a cult that advocates being natural dinosaurs again.
It won an Ursa Major Award in 2001.
Hot and Sweaty Rex
