2 Bloggers 1 Book - Bigfoot in the Bronx


Hunter Shea has always been a favorite author of Stormi and myself.  Last year and maybe the year before we did a "Shea in May" feature.  So when he released a new novel, we just knew we had to buddy read it.  So continue on to see what I thought about his latest endeavor and then hop over to Stormi's @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and read her review.

The Hunt 
It’s hunting season for best friends Shay and Vito. This year, with a bad economy and Shay out of work, it’s more important than ever to bag a deer so they can feed their families. Tucking their truck in their secret spot outside a state park in the Catskills, they settle down, waiting for a deer to come to them. 
What they get is a giant creature that outruns a speeding deer and savages it with its bare hands and jagged teeth. Someone hidden in the woods shoots it with a tranquilizer dart. Shay knows what the beast at their feet is, and how its discovery can change their lives forever. They load it into their truck and head home for… 
The Bronx 
The drugged Bigfoot awakens in a cramped shed in Shay’s backyard. Confused, terrified, angry, it breaks loose in the middle of the night, seeking refuge in a nearby cemetery. When the bagpipes of a morning funeral drive it into a killing rage, the carnage has just begun. 
From playgrounds to golf courses, apartment buildings to subway cars, the bigfoot is on the move – and it’s not happy. Can Shay and Vito find and recapture the beast before it burns the Bronx to the ground?

MY THOUGHTS: First of all, look at that cover! Isn't Harry adorable?  Yes, I named him and yes, I sort of loved him and damn you Hunter!  So each year Shay and Vito go deer hunting.  Usually it's a good excuse to hang out in the woods and drink beer.  But this year is different.  Shay has been out of work for some time and he is really counting on stocking his freezer with some venison.  But soon Vito and Shay discover that there's more in the woods than deer.  When an old man living off the grid manages to show up and tranquilize bigfoot, Shay and Vito sweep in for all the glory.  Except they think bigfoot is dead and will be perfectly fine in Shay's shed all night.  Boy were they wrong.

This book is a typical Shea creature feature which I consider a good thing.  I'll admit it took a while for the carnage and mayhem to start but once it did, I was thoroughly captivated.  And in typical Shea fashion, he threw in some great characters to boot.  While I liked Shay and Vito and all of their misguided ignorance, I really fell in love with the teenage girl who befriended Harry and wanted only the best for him.  And no, Hunter did not name him Harry, although he did reference Harry and the Hendersons.

So if you love creature features and are like me and eagerly look forward to Shea's next release, then what are you waiting for?  Pick this book up, curl up with a nice cup of coffee, or bourbon if you prefer, and prepare yourself for a treat.
