Description

Sticky Pines: The Bigwoof Conspiracy

Dashe Roberts

(Nosy Crow)

Lucy Sladan is certain of The Bigwoof Conspiracy in Sticky Pines. Right before Milo Fisher say that she was struck by lightning, she photographed Bigwoof. However, her camera was damaged in the strike. Thankfully, Milo is a keen photographer and has images of the night. Maybe one of them will show what Lucy saw?
However, when Lucy finds verification of strange, slimy things going on in the woods, the picture changes. Suddenly, Milo’s father, new owner of the Sticky Sweet factory is dismissive of Lucy’s claims, and her suspicion of him. How is he linked to strange creatures in the woods? Could the introduction of a new sweetener into the sweets and confectionary have something to do with him? Thereafter, why is Mr Fisher holding a carnival for Sticky Pines? It seems as though Lucy’s suspicions of clowns are valid! Then there’s the disappearance of local people…
Lucy Sladan is a dogged character, determined to unearth the truth beneath the sticky, bear- faced lies of Sticky Pines. Yet who can she trust? There are shades of The Ghouls of Howlfair and Bigfoot, Tobin & Me in this compelling and witty mystery. The Bigwoof Conspiracy is curious, deep-mired and unpredicatble. It’s left this reader desperate for the next instalment!
