It's true, what you've always heard....Don't judge a book by its cover. Because the cover on this one is great.
If I was Child's publicist, I'd have told him, "Back to the drawing board, Linky. You've got way more talent, more imagination, and enough money already banked to be mutilating your respectable reputation with this kind of twaddle." Child brings nothing new to the werewolf lore and seems to be grabbing onto anything floating by to save this one from flowing into the storm drain (sewer pipe). Desolation Mountain....Ooooooh! Black Water Lake......Eeeeeekkk! Crazy father-daughter mad scientist team........Aaaagggghhh! Isolated backwoods Hillbillies...... Eeeeewwwww! Over zealous Park Rangers and a few side-eyed locals round out an ersatz thriller that even Scooby Doo and the team would have felt was inadequate.

I have read all of Lincoln child's books both his alone and with D Preston. I have loved them all except this one, poor storytelling. It is almost as if he found an old copy of a first draft and went with it no editing or changes. The reader did a fine job with what he had to work with.
