Eleanor Piper grew up in the West Country and spent much of her time on the moors and walking the coastal paths of
Devon. She has always enjoyed the ancient
history and mythology of the county she grew up in. She will be talking about her
exciting new book:
“In the darkness claws scraped against rock as something headed up out of the stygian gloom to hunt in the shelter of night.
Silhouetted against the dying sunset a head emerged from the cave. Feline, graceful, powerful. It yawned. Even to a distant observer, the fangs would have been obvious. The creature was an apex predator, larger than a tiger and far more deadly. “
Mabel Cooper, Dartmoor National Park Ranger, must put aside her conservationist sensibilities when she is asked to help guide top big game hunter, Baxter Cobb, in his quest to track and kill the man-eater that was responsible for the death of a dog walker on the moor.
But no big cats have escaped from the zoo. And as the death toll mounts, so do the questions about what this creature is. The hunters must come to terms with the fact that the ancient tales of horror, surviving as folklore for centuries, will turn out to be based on more than just myth and legend.
