Overnaturlig true crime? Et uopklaret mord fører en journalist ind i en californisk myte-verden, hvor sagndyret Bigfoot er hovedmistænkt!

Da han i 1993 arbejdede på en potfarm i Californien hørte gonzo-journalisten David Holthouse først den chokerende historie om et brutalt, tredobbelt mord i nærheden. Den hovedmistænkte: kæmpeaben Bigfoot, lokalt kendt som Sasquatch! En historie så langt ude i skoven, at Holthouse stadig hjemsøges af den i dag - og beslutter sig for at opklare det bizarre mysterium ved faktisk at tage det seriøst. Et forrygende ‘deep dive’ ind i en gråzone af amerikansk folklore, pottåger og en meget virkelig forbrydelse, der aldrig blev opklaret. Vel vidende at de fleste kender Bigfoot fra grynede fotografier à la Loch Ness-uhyret og flyvende tallerkener, lykkes Holthouse imidlertid med at så en spire af tvivl i sit eget skeptiske sind - og måske også i vores?

An unsolved murder leads a journalist into a mythical Californian world, where the supernatural creature Bigfoot is the main suspect.

When he worked at a pot farm in California in 1993, the gonzo journalist David Holthouse heard the shocking story about a brutal triple murder in the vicinity. The main suspect was the giant ape Bigfoot, locally known as Sasquatch. A story so far out that Holthouse is still haunted by it today and decides to solve the bizarre mystery - by actually taking it seriously. The result is a terrific ‘deep dive’ into a grey zone of American folklore, stoner life and a very true crime that was never solved. Knowing full well that most people know Bigfoot from grainy photographs à la Loch Ness monster and flying saucers, Holthouse manages to sow a seed of doubt in his own sceptical mind – and possibly also in ours?
