So there I was, deep into my Reading Funk, seemingly lost to the world as we know it. Nothing was appealing to me. Not Swierczynski's Fun and Games. Not Jeremy Robinson's latest, Threshold (Jack Sigler). Not the two Blake Crouch books I'm sitting on, Abandon and Snowbound. Not any of the sixty or seventy (at least) books in my tbr pile.
I knew just what I needed. Something fast. Something I could read with a bowl of popcorn and a can of Coke. Something where I could just turn my brain off and enjoy.
Thank you, Jeff Strand, thank you.
While sifting through my Kindle pages, searching the plethora of unread books, my eyes lighted upon Strand's Wolf Hunt.
If there is one thing Strand is good at delivering, it's the goods. His books are always fun, exhilarating and action packed. And WOLF HUNT is no exception.
WOLF HUNT is about George and Lou, a couple of heavies that do jobs for a man named Ricky. Usually those jobs include hurting people. George and Lou are good at their job. Then one day Ricky calls and tells them he's lined up a sweet job for them. All they have to do is transport a werewolf from Miami to Tampa.
And everybody knows werewolves aren't real, right?
And besides, even if Ivan (the supposed werewolf) does turn into a wild beast, he's locked in a strong cage in the back of the van they're transporting him in. What could go wrong?
Well, this is a Jeff Strand novel and things always go wrong.
The bodies start to pile up quickly as the situation goes from normal to hairy for George and Lou. After their van is attacked by a pack of neighbourhood dogs while stopped at a gas station, they begin to wonder what it is they are transporting across Florida.
Could Ivan really be one of the mythic lycanthrope?
Could he be the fabled beast of more than a thousand Hollywood horror movies?
WOLF HUNT is an action-packed thrillomedy and is highly entertaining. Strand's writing, as always, is a pleasure to read.
So perhaps, like me you're stuck in the middle of a Reading Funk and the world just isn't right. Let me make a suggestion to you, dear Wormie. Click on over to Amazon.com and get your WOLF HUNT on!
