Brood: A Strange Investigation by Lars Guignard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the tradition of Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and the X-Files:
A scientist is missing...
Alaskan fishermen are getting their fingers bitten off...
And the fish we eat is at the root of a conspiracy that will change us all.
Paranormal detective Sterling Strange faces his most horrifying case yet. Alaskan fishermen are getting their fingers bitten off. Soon after being mutilated, the fishermen disappear. Sterling's quest to determine the fate of missing men takes him to a wilderness fish farm, far up a remote inlet. But the investigation takes a back seat to survival when Sterling finds himself next on the fish farmer's list.
BROOD is a 20,000 word novella (approximately 85 pages) that takes the reader on a wild and frightening ride deep into the wilderness where fish are being bred for more than their meat.
Interesting story. I like the characters, though I definitely feel like I need more of the back story on them. Would love to learn more about Sterling Strange and his past. Especially some of the events hinted at by the author. What happened to him in college? Would love to read the story about what happened to Nicky's best friend that brought her and Sterling together.
This book almost seems to be the second or third book of a series. I will be looking for more stories about Sterling Strange and his interesting investigations in the future.
