Cryptid: Discovery

Cryptid: Discovery
Cryptid Trilogy Set 1
by Douglas E. Roff and Jacob A. Roff
Genre: Horror, Thriller

Adam St. James, software genius and savant Chief Technologist of the

massive American DataLab Project, had just returned to his home in

Barrows Bay, British Columbia from Tucson, Arizona. He had spent the

better part of the past month working on a pro bono assignment for

his father’s friend Peter Berg, Regional Director of the FBI,

working out of the Seattle field office. His favor for the FBI was to

secure the mother lode and Holy Grail of the FBI’s Joint Organized

Crime Task Force that Berg believed he had accidentally stumbled

upon. Mere fortuity had led him to what he thought was fifty years or

more of Mafia financial books and records detailing organized

criminality from Seattle to Miami and all points in between.

What Adam found was nothing even remotely resembling what Regional

Director Berg was looking for. It had been a small clerical error

made by a temp transposing a letter or two in a last name that led

Adam St. James to his incredible discovery. But this discovery was

too incredible, too massive to even contemplate as being authentic.

Adam himself did not believe it could be true. Would he be proven

correct or was the truth too immeasurably stranger than fiction?

If Adam had accidently stumbled upon a great discovery, it would mean

that he had fortuitously confirmed the existence of the cryptid of

all cryptids. Had Adam found scientific and verifiable proof of the

existence of an unknown species of creatures capable of transforming

to human form or was this some immense practical joke designed to

annoy and embarrass him and his father, noted forensic archeologist

and author, Edward St. James?

His journey will be fantastic. His discovery, if true, immense.

But will Adam and his eclectic family survive discovery? Will

Born in the United states, lived in Russia, the UK, Mexico, Costa Rica and

Canada. Citizen of the US and Canada. Worked for US and Canadian

governments as well as a long career in finance and trade finance. I

live in Latin America between countries on and off. I am retired and

now write novels full time.

I am single, have one son who was active in my first three novels, the

Cryptid Trilogy. I speak Spanish fluently.

I have completed three other novels that are now in edit, and have two

more novels that are in various stages of completion, will be

finished in 2018 but will not be published until 2019.

I was targeted by the Russian government for arrest in retaliation for

the arrest of a Russian spy in the US.

I was never a spy, but was a visible American involved in trade

promotion. The Russian spy was released and I was left alone after

that. I left Russia in 1998.

I moved to Canada after that and spent over fifteen years in Vancouver,

BC. I lived in Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Mexico after leaving Canada.

I have traveled extensively around the world, largely with my son, and
