Publisher's Summary

A collection of short stories featuring Sam Hunter, from best-selling author Jonathan Maberry!
Sam Hunter is a bit of an animal. He's a former Twin Cities cop who lost his badge because of excessive force. Abusive husbands, child molesters, and other lowlifes wound up looking like they'd been mauled by a dog...or a wolf.
Now Sam's a low-rent PI in Philadelphia. He takes the kinds of cases no one wants. His clients are usually on the fringes of society. The kind who are prey for all manner of predators - human and otherwise.
When Sam takes on a client, they become part of his pack, and no one protects their own better than a werewolf. At least the kind of werewolf like Sam, who comes from a long, long line of Benandanti - also known as "the hounds of God".
Stories in this collection include "Like Part of the Family", "Toby's Closet", "Crazy Town", "We All Make Sacrifices", and "A House in Need of Children".

Probably would be better if they were longer

Ray Porter does a fine job as usual.

This is not the strongest Mayberry work. I think there was potential here but the stories are so short that there's not a lot beyond a quick setup and a bloody conclusion. That's fine for one or two but beyond that it's boring.
It's like Mayberry needs more time to build up a head of steam.
There's a lot of fantasy creature P.I. stories out there so there needed to be more here.

Oddly, though I found this collection disappointing, it convinced me to give the much longer pine deep series a chance.

Love Maberry, but story was a bit repetitive

Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite authors with one of my favorite book series, the Joe Ledger novels. That being said, this compilation of short stories was repetitive and lackluster with a touch of running in place. The story lines would start strong and draw you in but ultimately end in the same manner. Each story would include the same lines from the character over and over, i.e. "I hate people that hurt women and children", "once I take on a case, the client becomes part of my pack" and "I didn't take money from the client". It would have been refreshing to see how Sam Hunter dealt with a case that didn't involve women and children and if he actually cashed a damn check once in a while. How the hell does he pay for anything? Overall the compilation wasn't terrible but I was expecting a lot more out of it.

Maberry and Porter

Ray Porter at his best voicing the characters coming out of Jonathan Maberry's head.
Match made in HELL! brilliant!
