Private Detective John Denson believes in logic. He does not believe in Bigfoot. But when he and Willie Prettybird, his some­time partner who may or may not be a sha­man, are hired to help a beautiful Russian scientist Dr.Sonja Popoleyev, in her search for the legendary sasquatch, a $100,000 reward persuades him to suspend his dis­belief. In the Northwest Bigfoot is big business.

Their competition: David Addison, land developer, Professor Bonduraunt of the Brit­ish Museum, Alford and Elford Pollard, local bigfoot hunters, Roger Whitcomb, net­work personality, and a group of Canadian mountain climbers.

Before the expedition can begin, Elford is murdered. With cold hard cash on the line, the searchers are soon scrambling for traces of the elusive creature. But the mur­derer isn't finished yet, and Denson and his party are on the endangered species list.

Richard Hoyt's John Denson Mysteries are "sophisticated, well written exam­ples of the genre" (The New York Times). Now John Denson faces his deadliest challenge yet...
