Praise for Creature of the Cascades:


"I had almost given up reading novels...then I picked up Creature of the Cascades. Here is something you don't see every day. A wordsmith with depth who has not only lived the outdoor life; he's an observer of the critters and the characters of the Northwest. Rob Phillips writes real places into this page-turner, and he is not averse to taking risks with humor, suspense and wordplay. I was hooked from the first jump."

     --Gary Lewis, TV host and author of Fishing Central Oregon, Fishing Mount Hood Country, and John Nosler Going Ballistic


​"Rob Phillips takes you on another fun romp into the wilds of Washington State as Luke McCain works on arresting poachers who are stealing young raptors.... McCain also struggles to figure out who or what is killing pets, livestock, and wild game in the South Cascades. Is it Sasquatch as some believe or is it something else? Read Creature of the Cascades, the latest Luke McCain novel and find out!"

     --John Kruse, host of Northwestern Outdoors and America Outdoors Radio


Book Description:


When WDFW officials receive an anonymous tip that poachers might be taking young falcons and eagles from nests around eastern Washington and shipping them to a Russian oligarch, Washington State fish and wildlife officer Luke McCain and his colleagues must go to new heights to save the federally protected raptors.  


Meanwhile, domestic animals are going missing in the region, and Luke investigates the gruesome remains. As details of the animals’ mysterious deaths emerge, rumors explode that a mystical creature—the ever-elusive bigfoot—may be responsible. Thinking a more plausible explanation is likely, Luke endeavors to unravel the clues leading authorities to whoever, or whatever, is killing the animals before bigfoot mania overruns the region and more beloved animals are slaughtered.
