Halloween Bingo: Cryptozoologist

Curse of Loch Ness - Peter Tremayne

From the blurb:

"Through the gaps in the swirling mist she could make out, perhaps two hundred feet below, something which looked like a rag doll, arms and legs askew at strange angles."

I have mixed expectations of this book: on one hand, I am going to set my expectations pretty low and start reading the book knowing full well that the setting etc. will be wrong. 

On the other, I have some hope that this will not be the usual slasher story and that Nessie will not be portrayed as an evil creature. I rooted for the shark in Jaws, and I am certainly rooting for Nessie in this one.

 

This book will be my choice for the Cryptozoologist square.
