Dutch Kanin sees photos before they happen, making him a renowned photographer in the news business. Some say Dutch is psychic. Some say he's lucky. But Dutch has a simpler explanation for his ability to be in the right place at the right time. People are predictable. And he thrives on that predictability. He hunts it. He even provokes it. And then he nearly gets someone killed for it.
After that the awards, accolades, and prestige become too much, and seeking redemption, Dutch retires to a small-town newspaper...only to stumble upon the biggest story of his career: Philip Thorn.
Philip is every reason Dutch abandoned mainstream media. He's twelve feet tall, on the lam, has a connection with a mysterious piece of town history, and is the culprit behind a string of robberies that has the town on fire with speculation. In other words, Philip Thorn is big news. And nobody knows he exists but Dutch. Now Dutch must choose. Return to his old ways and expose Philip or keep the discovery a secret and help the giant make his great escape from the town that's hunting him. Both, however, may end in calamity.
And at the center of it all is the elusive Iris Redgrave, whose obscurity overshadows even the giant's and whose secrets lure Dutch into a startling turn.
Complete with a classic love story and a set of ego-driven antagonists, Man and Monster is a thrilling encounter with the world of developing news stories and the perils that exist when people try to run from their pasts.
