Summary "Nancy Drew meets David Lynch in this mystery thriller set in a strange and remote [Canadian] East Coast village. The story follows a gang of teens who have made it their business to investigate every one of their town's bizarre occurrences as The Teen Detective Club (a registered afterschool program). Their small world of missing pets and shed fires is turned upside down when real-life kid adventurer and globetrotter Sam Finch comes to town and enlists them in their first real case--the search for his missing father. In doing so, they stumble upon a terrifying world of rural secret societies, weird-but-true folk mythology, subterranean lairs, and an occultist who can turn men into dogs. The Case of The Missing Men is at turns funny, intriguing, eerie, and endearing, a dystopian homage to children's pulp classics"--Page [4] of cover.
