"I wasn't sure you would get this far, so thanks a million already. You opened the mystery bag... Inside the bag, along with this letter, is a dossier that describes the whole story." Kevin Stubbs is a Knower. He knows life hasn't always treated him fairly. He knows he wants to be allowed access to his son again. But most of all, he knows that the London Borough of Sutton is being stalked by a nine-foot-tall, red-eyed, hairy relict hominid - the North Surrey Gigantopithecus. Armed with a thermal imaging camera (aka the Heat Ray), a Trifield 100XE electromagnetic field reader (aka the Tractor Beam), and his trusty comrades in the GIT (aka the Gigantopithecus Intelligence Team), Kevin sets out to prove that the Gartree-Hogg footage from Sutton Cock is real, and that a British Bigfoot is living in suburban London: FACT. But what he discovers undermines everything he believes in - and forces Kevin to face up to his own failures, and the very real, very scary prospect that he might have got it all terribly wrong.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A very funny account of cryptozoological shenanigans on the edge of urban Banstead. It's not often these days that I laugh out loud when reading a book, but this one is rich with brilliant comic moments. Loved it. - Gareth E. Rees, author of Unofficial Britain, Car Park Life and more This tale of what happens when a hobby becomes an obsession is unlike anything I've read before. Absurd and inventive, Gigantic made me laugh and shake my head in equal measure, and the ingenious way in which the story unfolds had me gripped. -Lucie McKnight Hardie, author of Water Shall Refuse Them
