SHADOW KILLER by Matthew Scott Hansen - FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Matthew Scott Hansen.
Every hair on Ty's body, the skin on his neck and arms,
everything was clenched in a primeval fear stimulus response. In the
thick of the woods not ten yards away stood a creature, manlike,
apelike . . . some sort of hairy humanoid, like a gorilla standing
upright on long legs. Motionless, it stared at Ty, and Ty froze dead in
Jesus Christ, this is Bigfoot.
BIGFOOT IS ANGRY.
When careless campers unleash a raging forest fire, they
inadvertently set in motion a blood-drenched spree of revenge.
Motivated by the immolation of his family, a nearly eleven-foot-tall,
preternaturally strong superprimate begins stalking the mountains
northeast of Seattle, hunting the humans he blames and
leaving an eerie trail of missing people . . . but little else.
As people begin vanishing from nearby forests, former software
magnate Ty Greenwood risks everything to find out why. Tormented by his
encounter with a Bigfoot three years earlier, Ty's past now collides
with what he suspects is happening. But this time he doesn't realize
that the stakes are far higher.
In his search for two missing lawyers, Snohomish County
Sheriff's Detective Mac Schneider discovers a spectacularly large
footprint. Is it another hoax or is there really something to fear in
the woods? Despite mounting evidence, Mac fears ridicule and is
reluctant to reveal that the myth might in fact be a terrifying
reality. Complicating everything for him is Kris Walker, a gorgeous but
ruthless television reporter bent on getting the story at any cost.
Joining the quest is an old Native American actor with a
troubling secret: Ben Campbell has a mystical connection to the beast.
And while Ben's link with this fearsome and intelligent being haunts
his dreams and could spell his doom, it may also prove to be the only
key to stopping this ferocious, inhuman killing machine. Can they end
his deadly rampage before he destroys everything they hold dear?
Just when you thought it was safe to go into the woods . . . The Shadowkiller will give even the most hard-core skeptic a reason to think twice before going camping.
