Publisher's Summary

On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines.
Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.

What the Critics Say

"Simon Prebble's elegant narration adds dignity to a potentially tawdry premise: a British spy in Nazi-occupied Europe during WWII who is secretly a werewolf. As it turns out, McCammon's storyline is surprisingly plausible, and Prebble persuasively voices the spy's tortured introspection about his identity as well as the horrors of the Nazi regime…. Prebble articulates a wide range of characters--from a beautiful French Resistance warrior to a sneering Nazi officer--with just enough color to distinguish them. Also notable are Prebble's voices for the spy's fellow werewolves and his perfect pacing as the spy is almost cornered." (AudioFile)

Enjoyable story with characters I liked or hated

I read a lot of books from this genre - my list looks more like I'm a 15-year old guy instead of a 64-year old woman! I've read several of McCammon's books and Wolf's Hour is a great addition to my library. I would have enjoyed a bit more wolffish time with the main character, but getting to know him in both his human and wolf persona was interesting. And who doesn't hate Nazi's?

McCammon man, McCammon!!

Any additional comments?

If Jason Bourne and rabid Lassie had a love child on the set of The Dirty Dozen directed by John Woo, this is what you’d get.
