About the Book

She eloped with Bigfoot. Or maybe Bigfoot kidnapped her. Either way, I’ve been hired to uncover the truth behind Cindy Funk’s disappearance. Me? I’m Floyd, and I’m a PI living my life as Elvis would have wanted. Not just in sequined jumpsuits. With character.

Cindy’s trail leads me to River City, Oregon—aka the Mythical Creature Capital of the World—where I catch Case #2. This one from an eccentric billionaire who’s lost a priceless piece of “art.” Enter one dead body and I end up deputized to solve Case #3, tracking down a man-eating mountain lion. Or maybe it’s a chupacabra. Or just an ordinary murderer. Hard to say.

I’ve handled my fair share of crazy, but River City’s secrets have me spooked. With an influx of tourists arriving for the town’s annual Elvis tribute contest—what are the chances?—I’ve got to save the girl, solve the rich guy’s problem and leash that chupacabra before a second body is discovered. It might just be mine.

My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I always enjoy a good mystery and Bigfoot Blues qualifies, but it is also weird and funny…definitely a welcome change from the norm.

Floyd is a PI but he also lives the Elvis lifestyle which means he lives as he believes Elvis would want him to live. It also involves wearing various Elvis inspired jumpsuits (I keep picturing the special from Hawaii, which probably dates me). Of course, everyone he meets thinks he’s an Elvis impersonator, which, surprisingly, annoys him. His girlfriend is a red headed bearded lady, formerly from a circus, now a sheriff. A friend of hers named Goliath, who is a small person (he hates the word midget) ends up helping Floyd before he drags him to see his girlfriend to work things out.

Those are just the main characters. Floyd is on a case in which he needs to find Bigfoot and ends up looking for a chupacabra as well. It’s all pretty crazy. 

Not only did I get a kick out of the story and the characters, but it had a good plot. I liked how everything came together at the end. If you enjoy mysteries and like something a little different, I definitely recommend Bigfoot Blues.
