Publisher's Summary

Could a nightmare be used as a murder weapon? That's the provocative question confronting Gurney in the thrilling new installment in this series of international bestsellers. The former NYPD star homicide detective is called upon to solve a baffling puzzle: Four people who live in different parts of the country and who seem to have little in common, report having had the same dream - a terrifying nightmare involving a bloody dagger with a carved wolf's head on the handle. All four are subsequently found with their wrists cut - apparent suicides - and the weapon used in each case was a wolf's head dagger.
Police zero in quickly on Richard Hammond, a controversial psychologist who conducts hypnotherapy sessions at a spooky old Adirondack inn called Wolf Lake Lodge. It seems that each of the victims had gone there to meet with Hammond shortly before turning up dead.
Troubled by odd holes in the official approach to the case, Gurney begins his own investigation - an action that puts him in the crosshairs of not only an icy murderer and the local police but the darkest corner of the federal government. As ruthless as the blizzard trapping him in the sinister eeriness of Wolf Lake, Gurney's enemies set out to keep him from the truth at any cost - including an all-out assault on the sanity of his beloved wife Madeleine.
With his emotional resources strained to the breaking point, Gurney must throw himself into a deadly battle of wits with the most frightening opponent he has ever faced.
Wolf Lake is the new work by a writer hailed by the New York Times as "masterly" - and it furthers the adventures of Dave Gurney, a detective reviewers have compared to Sherlock Holmes.

John Verdon is back!

Loved the first two in this series but had been a tad disappointed with the last one (Peter Pan). So glad to see Mr. Verdon is back in this one. With clever explanations that you simply didn't see coming (but could have), tons of interesting (if improbable) characters, and fun dialogue. Highly entertaining. And the reader is pretty good as well.

I'd rather see the movie

There is no movie but I think it would have made a good one. It's a true detective drama that get has a deep focus on the steps of the trade. The narrator was fantastic. I really like his voice as Gurney. The challenge was keeping up with all of the details while listening as I work and the long wait for action. However all the details can be visualized in the read and the watching of the movie. Listening to it leaves a lot of gaps in my imagination of the story.
