Everyone has their Boogeyman. But who ? or what ? is scaring Saskatoon locals to death? Private detective Russell Quant is roused from sleep only to fall into a nightmare case when the family of a suicide victim hires him to uncover the real cause of death. But what is real and what is imaginary? Quant works to narrow his list of suspects only to find the number of victims growing. Russell is mystified as the trail of fear connects him to a vast landscape of people, including an elegant potash miner, dubious trailer park denizens, reticent farm folk, the Pink Gopher choir, and a gaseous psychiatrist. Compounding Quant's bewilderment is the complete and perfect disappearance of his once very real friend, Sereena, who has become a ghost he simply can't find. With the Boogeyman always a few paces ahead, Russell struggles to keep the hounds of failure from baying. Travelling from Saskatchewan's summer storms to the menacing Lotus Land of Vancouver, he finally touches down in the Canadian Arctic, where tragic hope resides. Russell returns home to bully attacks, a desperate chase through midnight woods, and a sadistic abduction. As Quant penetrates the truth of the Boogeyman, he finds himself on a perilous suspension bridge between idyllic childhood and grown-up violence.

About the Author:

Anthony Bidulka is an avid traveller and party-giver. He lives in Saskatoon. This is the fourth book in his Russell Quant mystery series.

Review:

"Bidulka is skilled at juggling a number of balls, keeping the plot and subplots spinning until the end, prompting the greedy reader to demand: "Where's the next one?"." --Lavender Magazine (Minnesota)

"Bidulka is at his finest in his depictions of ordinary life..." --Lambda Book Report (New York)

"...a mainstream mystery with an engaging protagonist and an exceptionally well drawn cast of characters that intrigue and captivate the reader." --Spinetingler Magazine

"Quant...makes for a riveting hero...the kind of friend you want to have--unless you're a killer." --Mystery Scene Magazine (New York)

"Bidulka is clear evidence that writing in the mystery genre does not automatically preclude character development or emotional connection with the reader." --Wayves (Halifax)
