L.M. Rostedt, a prolific writer and author with a bachelor and master’s degrees and a two-year work-study residency in a hospital, working with patients dealing with life-threatening illnesses; and a senior deputy investigator in a division attached to the Mental Health Department, has completed his new book “Looking for Jake”, a gripping narrative of a scientist’s surprising encounter with a Bigfoot that puts him in a struggle between safety and vulnerability.

Author Rostedt shows the significance of new discoveries to the mortal existence and presents a valuable notion of sacrifice for the benefit of one against many, especially in the face of solicitude: “Reeling from a personal tragedy, science engineer Derek Hexum relocates his work from Southern to North Central California at a laboratory and military complex. Soon after his arrival, while hiking in the nearby woods one day, he stumbles into a brief encounter with a juvenile bigfoot. From that unexpected encounter between human and animal, an uneasy friendship begins to evolve.

Already caught up in a murder investigation downstate in the LA area, Hexum becomes a further person of interest after an act of terrorism rips across the military base. Then a series of horrific killings begin to occur, first with livestock and later against area residents. The scientist is certain the gentle creature he’s befriended isn’t responsible. But if it isn’t, what is?

Local police are investigating the murders. The FBI is doggedly pursuing the specters of both domestic and foreign terrorists. Certain elements in the military are attempting to shelter base black ops programs from the general population. And the scientist is trying to protect his newly found “friend” from a Special Forces unit hunting down a shadowy assassin moving through the surrounding forests.

Through it all, a titantic battle between Science and Nature begins to emerge. Which one wins may determine the safety of the local area and the invulnerability of the nation’s defenses. It’s a breathless race to the end, where any possibility may become the reality.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, L.M. Rostedt’s engrossing tale will surely capture the readers’ minds and propound philosophical perspectives that challenge their personal beliefs on reality and how they deal with it.
