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.

This one gets a little gruesome!

John Vernon returned to his original Dave Gurney character with this book. After returning the last book I was skeptical and it took me over a year with this book in my wish list before I purchased it. I am happy to say that I am keeping this one and am sorry I waited so long!
A $1,000 per night for a room at a lodge located in upstate NY and an intensive therapy session with the resident shrink. You wouldn't expect the guests to then go home and commit suicide. That's how it's supposed to look until Gurney is hired to look into four almost identical deaths.
This is a good mystery that borders on a horror story towards the end. There's a blizzard, the cars have been tampered with so they can't be driven, miles from anywhere, electricity goes out and there's a killer on the loose with an axe killing who ever is still there. Of course there's more then one suspect and for the series to continue Gurney must figure out who before it's too late.
Christopher Lane does an excellent job narrating.
Very entertaining and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

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.

What a disappointment.

Loved the first two Gurney novels...endured the third, returned the fourth. The new narrator reads like this is the first time he's seen the words and I don't care about the absolutely uninteresting minutiae of Gurney's marriage to his painful wife. I want a murder mystery, not an Aga saga. Beyond disappointed.

New narrator

What did you like most about Wolf Lake?

Just like to say to anyone worried about having a new narrator - I prefer Christopher Lane reading this book. Jeff Harding is excellent too, but I kept getting pulled out of the story due to hearing Jack Reacher's verbal mannerisms. If you don't listen to the Reacher books it's a moot point - but for all the Reacher fans out there, you know what I mean :)

What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's a solid narrator, and a plus that he doesn't sound like Jack Reacher :)
