Bee is in her element working in the taxidermy department at the Museum of Natural History, but her summer job turns out to be full of surprises: a dead body in the Red Rotunda. A mysterious Museum benefactor. A large stuffed tiger in the Catacombs. A handsome boy with a fascination for unusual animal mating habits. And a pocketful of glass eyes. Can Bee sift through the clues to discover whether her mentor really committed suicide...or is there a murderer in their midst?
