Footprints to Murder
When a man is murdered in the woods and the main suspect appears to be a big-footed legend, amateur sleuth Hannah Ives steps in to solve the mystery.
Hannah is delighted to reconnect with her former roommate, Susan Lockley, owner of Scarborough Fairs, at a college reunion, and agrees to step in when Susan’s assistant drops out of managing the Sasquatch Sesquicentennial in Granite Falls, Oregon. But when Martin Radcliffe, a professional debunker, is found murdered, surrounded by gigantic footprints, the culprit appears, or was meant to appear, obvious: Bigfoot.
Fantasy or fact? As the conference disintegrates into a chaos of finger pointing, mistrust, and fear, it falls to Hannah to restore order. Working closely with Jake, a retired policeman and his K-9, Harley, Hannah hastens to stave off the vigilantes and solve the crime before Bigfoot, if he exists, comes one step closer to extinction.

“Citations regarding unusual humanoid creatures, most dating to the late 19th century, head each chapter of this entertaining entry.” —Publishers Weekly
