If you're an extra special customer, they even give you a private suite in a secluded part of the building."

First Line: "To most people, a zoo is a collection of four-footed animals. But there's one menagerie I know of where the inmates walk on two feet. In the first cage, for instance, you'll find a giant forger whose specialty is writing other peoples' names. And in another iron cell you can inspect the genus "pickpocket," known also as the "little dip," who can sometimes prove that the hand is quicker than the eye. But the prize exhibit is a hopped-up character with a nervous twitch in his forefinger. He prowls alone when he looks for prey, and he's known for his taste for... murder-r-r."
