The Spokane Ecology Board covers up supernatural incidents, under the pretence of enforcing environmental laws. It's a dull job of sightseeing thunderbirds and pixie outbreaks. Until the team gets murdered.
Ari is the replacement team's Bigfoot liaison. Armed with everything she's learned from detective shows, she's ready to find the murderer. The downside is the job comes with a human partner, who smells of air freshener and lines up his desk like a math project. He's only a scientist, so it's not like he knows anything about magical crimes.
Ben Cabot grew up hearing stories about Bigfoot, but they failed to mention a love of the internet or an aversion to throwing wrappers away. But there's more out of place than an untidy work partner. Someone's messed with the case files, and that means the killer might be closer than they think.
The first episode of the Bigfoot Mysteries blends traditional detective drama and Native American folklore with more common fantasy creatures. Bigfoot Ari Smith and human Ben Cabot are newly minted partners at the Spokane Ecology Board in Spokane, Wash. Their first case, investigating the murders of SEB's previous bigfoot/human team, quickly whiplashes into the darker corners of Spokane's supernatural society of thunderbirds, mud men, skinwalkers, fairies, and foulmouthed pixies. Mutual fish-out-of water introverts Ari and Ben make an interesting team. Ari's awkwardly inconsistent grammar is distracting, and the brisk pace can make it difficult to follow the plot, but readers ready for the challenge will find Blake's story an intriguing take on noir-influenced urban fantasy.
