Tainted Trail (2002)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
05.29.10

Tainted Trail (2002) This novel is the follow-up to the author's previous book, ALIEN TASTE, and the second of the four in the UKIAH OREGON series. In the first book it was established that he was an alien hybrid who was raised by wolves until adopted by a human couple. Now, as an adult, he is partners in a detective agency that primarily finds missing people. He's hired to locate a missing hiker in Oregon, not too far from where he was discovered, and finds out she's been kidnapped. He also comes across a story about the regions legendary wolf boy who had vanished in 1933. He suspects it was probably him, or at least part of him. If Ukiah loses a part of himself, like a finger, it will transform into another creature, like a mouse, until it can be reunited with his body. In fact, this is how Ukiah acquired a son in the previous book--he lost a great deal of blood and it formed a human baby. He thinks something horrible must have happened to the wolf boy, like dismemberment, because he has no memory of it and probably formed the same way, from a body part. In trying to uncover this he finds his mother's descendants and that he has many human cousins. He also finds out where the spaceship of his father, a rebel alien, is hidden in the hills. He has to destroy it before the Ontongard, the evil aliens who have many bodies but only one mind, can get its technology.

As with the first book this one is jam packed with a lot of unlikely scenarios but author Spencer makes it all work together seemlessly. Think of it as LUCAN meets THE INVADERS. Recommended.
