A robbery, marriage, and disappearance of a young girl have struck the town of Oakdale, but are things as they really seem? Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Jack London / H.H. Knibbs-inspired, selfless, poetry-spouting, hobo character, Bridge, makes another appearance in The Oakdale Affair. Joining the poetic hobo in this Gothic themed tale are many other unusual elements: dark mysterious nights, a deserted haunted farmhouse, a violent thunderstorm, the Oskalooska Kid, a nameless girl, thieves and murderers, Beppo the bear, and other surprises. The Oakdale Affair is a deep mystery which would puzzle even Sherlock Holmes.
