SYNOPSIS
IN spite of the fishing rods that lay conspicuously displayed in the back of Clem Wood's motor-boat as it forged steadily through the placid waters of Cedar Lake, Anthony Trent was not on a fishing expedition. He was after bigger game—men. There was something mysterious taking place on the shores of this picturesque lake, and Trent was determined to find out what was afoot. It was not so much the death of a farmer nor the sudden departure of a man and his wife that interested Trent, but rather the fantastic rumours of a strange creature—a ghastly phenomenon of nature—that was reported prowling about at night.
