The Beast of Barcroft
by Bill Schweigart
I started this because I had never read an urban big cat cryptozoological horror novel before. And I still haven't, because this about some shapeshifter Indian magic skinwalker whatever. And yes, I know I'm being particular.
An animal hoarder causes problems in an Arlington suburb and may have attracted a mountain lion, but that didn't happen because it's an Indian magic were-mountain lion. A neighbor teams up with a big cat expert from the Smithsonian, who would know about urban big cats but wouldn't know anything about Indian magic, and they later team up with a cryptozoologist, who might know a little more about skinwalkers, but hey, just look it up on Wikipedia.
Even with the lack of urban big cats, animal hording could be a good backdrop for a horror story. It isn't here, but it could be. And if you like Indian magic skinwalker were-urban big cats, you might have more patience for the endless council meetings and code enforcement discussions than I did.
