"Something is on the prowl in the forests and foothills outside the small Wyoming town of Potter's Field, something that mutilates but does not feed, that kills indiscriminately and without reason, at night, by moonlight. As the body count mounts, police chief Nathan Slaughter and the town's medical examiner try to find out who or what is doing the killing....Morrell embeds compelling human drama in a taut, hell-for-leather plot consisting of equal parts police procedural, medical detective story, biological horror story, disaster novel and Gothic thriller."- Washington Post Book World

Hard to put down
April 28th, 2013
I am not a fan of any stories that even hint of werewolves, so I almost gave up on this book. But the story-telling got me hooked and there was just enough of possible scientific fact to keep me reading to see what happened. The ending was a little odd. The good guys were surrounded by the hippy/wolves. How did they survive? I have read another of this authors books and loved his skill and almost tender handling of the human spirit. I still don't like werewolf stories but will definitely look for more books by David Morrell. But I did not read the 2nd version that followed the first. I am worn out!
