There’s been a string of Bigfoot sightings in Roanoke Ridge. Do they have something to do with the body in the woods?
When Bigfoot researcher Professor Berton Sorel goes missing in the temperate rainforest of Roanoke Ridge, Oregon, help is summoned in the form of his former star pupil, Laura Reagan, online science populist and avowed skeptic. But what begins as a simple search and rescue operation takes a drastic turn when a body is discovered — and it isn’t the professor’s.
Caught in the fallout of the suspicious death, perplexed by a sudden wave of Bigfoot sightings, and still desperately searching for Professor Sorel, Reagan reluctantly admits two things: her old mentor was right about there being secrets hidden in Roanoke Ridge, and it’s up to her to uncover them.
J.J. Dupuis writes fiction, poetry, and satire. When not in front of a computer, he can be found haunting the river valleys of Toronto, where he lives and works.
Dupuis’s diverting debut introduces Laura Reagan, a cryptozoological investigator… Laura has enough substance to suggest she can sustain a series.
With Roanoke Ridge, J.J. Dupuis gives us a mystery centering around that primal human need to believe that something is out there. The book is mischievous, zany, and fast-paced, and it skewers our pop-culture lust the whole way through.
A fun, engaging read, written with lots of informed insider insight on a fascinating field — and with some neat cameos from the real world of Sasquatch research and investigation.
Brilliant … indeed an excellent book.
