Episode 24: The Wolfman by Nicholas Pekearo

November 13, 2017

Some folk say when you've read one werewolf story, you've read them all. So, we decided to check around and we found a list of five werewolf books that contain an unusual twist, and after reading the The Wolfman by Nicholas Pekearo we found that we were not disappointed.  Publishers Weekly said  "Spare, evocative prose lifts this impressive debut from Pekearo, who was killed in the line of duty as an auxiliary police officer in New York City in 2007. Marlowe Higgins, who’s both a werewolf and a detective, lives in the small town of Evelyn..."   We agree that the writing is solid with few flaws, and you will find some twists in this horror tale full of angst and aggression.  With Pekearo's background and interest in police work he does a nice job of combining elements of a detective novel with those of a horror story.
