Every fall in northern Michigan brings a spate of dogman sightings. A radio DJ’s invention, the dogman was created as an attention-getting joke. But millions of Michiganders believe in angels and vampires, werewolves, Bigfoot . . . and the dogman. Late summer, the mutilated bodies of two Native American girls are found in a tent in a remote campground in the Huron Mountains. Grady Service, who wants nothing more than to return to patrolling his beloved Mosquito Wilderness, is called into the case. Strange animal tracks are found, mayhem ensues, a bloody trail of victims begins to accumulate, and the governor, in a political panic and on her way out of office, orders Grady to hunt down and eliminate the killer—be it man or beast.
From the author called “a master of his form” comes the ninth Grady Service Mystery, a chilling and action packed novel in which Joseph Heywood’s legendary wilderness detective must use all of his investigative knowledge, woodcraft, and tracking sills to sort fantasy from reality.
