It starts when Blacklin County, Texas, oddball tough-guy Bud Turley asks Sheriff Dan Rhodes to guard an enormous tooth Bud found, which he claims belonged to Bigfoot. Shortly thereafter, the body of Bud's friend Larry is found in the vicinity of the "discovery." Bigfoot enthusiasts are convinced it's the creature's handiwork, especially when an elderly woman who ran a feedstore nearby is found with a broken neck. Rhodes suspects a monster of the more human variety.
Though feral pigs, copperheads and other dangers roam the area, Rhodes thinks both deaths are connected to the disappearance of a local boy a decade earlier. With Bigfoot mania running amok at his crime scene, Rhodes quietly pursues the trail of a killer with a deadly reputation of his own that he wants to keep buried.
