Overview

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. He 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, Quant struggles to keep the hounds of failure from baying. Traveling from Saskatchewan’s summer storms to the menacing Lotus Land of Vancouver, he finally touches down in the Canadian Arctic, where tragic hope resides. He 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.

Anthony Bidulka is an avid traveler, party-giver, and sun-worshipper. One of his favorite sayings is: “Life may be short, but it can be wide.” He lives in Saskatoon and invites you to visit his website at www.anthonybidulka.com. This is the fourth book in his Russell Quant mystery series.
