The Man in the Loon

a novel by Mitch Luckett

They’re back: Harp P. Gravey, wounded offbeat troubadour, Medusa, his mutt-ly sidekick, and Qo-oo-la, his avian avatar. Here, too, are April Old Wolf, the beautiful veterinarian, and her semi-shaman dad, Malcomb, Harp’s guide into a world of magic. Throw in a needy ten-year old boy, a pig with a badge, a crow with a bad attitude, plus a host of other unforgettable characters and you have The Man in the Loon—the sequel to To Kill a Common Loon. Like the first story, The Man in the Loon dishes out an appetizing murder mystery cooked up in a quirky, eco-friendly tour de force. There is a rash of local high-school football players dropping dead, a mystical, burning totem pole, a series of catastrophic earthquakes, and an ages-old wrong that needs to be righted before it is too late for humankind. Join Harp on his dragon-bedeviled meanderings to catch a mass killer in the wilds of Washington’s untamed Olympic Peninsula, while making his own 12-step, spiritual journey from fatherhood to ‘featherhood’ and back again. Transmigration has never been this dangerous … or this much fun.
