Publisher's Summary

Detective Lara Mendes's hard work finally pays off when she gets the chance to join the homicide detail. There's only one catch; she has to partner up with a cop no one wants to work with.
John Gallagher is a veteran homicide detective who loves stomping bad guys and hates partners. When the Lieutenant saddles him with this green kid named Mendes, his first reaction is to ditch her but a call comes in about a body on the river bank and the rotation says they're up.
What they find are human remains, mutilated and partially devoured. Their investigation reveals a killer stalking the city with a pack of vicious, feral dogs. And the suspect believes he is a werewolf.
But this is Portland, where crazy bastards outnumber normal ones ten to one. Except there's another catch. The crazy werewolf guy? He isn't crazy...

A thrilling read.

Any additional comments?

Detective Lara Mendes is thrilled to be given the chance to be part of homicide. Though when she is partnered with the bad tempered John Gallagher she isn't too sure. Never the less, she throws herself into their first case, and it's quite a doozy. They are called to a scene where some kids came across a body partially eaten by dogs. But some of the wounds inflicted seem to be done by a human and some by a yet unidentified beast, thought to be a wolf. From then on, both John and Lara are thrown into an unbelievable situation.

This was such a great read and I'm glad I gave it a chance. I always love a good werewolf book but when you incorporate detectives, then it's just a win win situation.

Both characters were well written and developed. Lara was pretty kick ass and well able to handle herself, though I did like the fact that she was afraid of dogs because it brought her down to earth and made her more relatable. Then we have John. He was grouchy, bad tempered and rude most of the time but there is so much more to him. He hates seeing his partners hurt so is more abrupt with new ones. Mendes comes on the scene and then they are thrown into a horribly brutal case, he doesn't know what to do. I really liked the dynamics between both of them and seeing their relationship grow.

Plot wise. It was slow enough at the start but definitely not boring. There is so much to the story that at no stage does it feel like nothing is happening. The idea of the werewolf using a pack of dogs was, for me anyway, unique and a great touch. I loved finding out about the person behind the wolf too!! Won't go into details for fear of spoiling it though!!

In all this was a scarily addictive read. I started it and didn't want to take out the earplugs because I needed to see what happens next. It was a dark and delicious read and I can not wait to read (or listen) to the next book in the series. I really enjoyed it and think that the audio helped a lot with that!

While listening I could picture this as a movie. Everything played out so well in my head and that's thanks to the narrator. He did an amazing job with the wolf and with the characters. He gave each character their own voice and he was easy to listen to.

Bad Wolf

Any additional comments?

This book was really good!I enjoyed Bob Bartons narration.He was a pleasure to listen to.Detective Gallager is not well liked by his co workers.He loses partners all the time and wants to work alone.When Lara finally makes it to Homicide,she gets partnered with him.It's a good match and things go well aside from the band of stray dogs that are terrorizing the town.Their elusive leader doesn't seem quite a dog...so what is he and who will be next?
