The Man in the Loon—the sequel to To Kill a Common Loon—dishes out a murder mystery cooked up in a quirky, magical, eco-friendly tour de force. There is a rash of local high-school football players dropping dead, a mystical burning totem pole, catastrophic earthquakes, and an ages-old wrong that needs to be righted before it is too late for humankind.
LOON asks, what if you accidentally shape-changed into your spirit animal and it was not a noble predator but a low-on-the-food chain prey? Add a human whodunit to the mix and you get an off-beat, juicy stew. LOON is that rarest of literary birds: a funny book with a vital message.
