Book Review: Nick Redfern's 'Monster Files'
Monster Files: A Look Inside Government Secrets and Classified Documents on Bizarre Creatures and Extraordinary Animals by Nick Redfern is an amazing compilation of reports and accounts in which cryptids and government come face-to-face.
I have always enjoyed Nick Redfern's books and this one is his best thus far. The book, in itself, has that 'field guide' look and feel. Many of the reports were unknown to me, which was a pleasant surprise. The book is loaded with twists and turns that will leave the reader reeling in astonishment. The bibliography is an astounding 15 pages...it is a well-documented and extensively researched work.
For me, one of the strangest episodes in 'Monster Files' involves Redfern's friend and colleague Jonathan Downes of Devonshire, who once investigated rumors that a British military unit had spotted a cryptid 'big cat' while shadowing the late Princess Diana. Was the rumor true? Well, the British Secret Service twice investigated and interviewed Downes in the belief that his investigation was some sort of cover for an IRA operation against the British Royal Family. Redfern also describes another incident recalled by Jonathan Downes where a hypertrichosis inflicted man was mistaken for a 'werewolf' and shot by the authorities. The 'monsters list' includes Bigfoot, sea serpents, lake creatures, wolfmen, the Loch Ness Monster, flying cryptids, big cats, etc....in worldwide locales.
Redfern's vast research and writing skill maintained the narrative as non-fiction...rarely did the incident descriptions waver. All crypto fans and enthusiasts should enjoy this title. I highly recommend it. Lon
