Glen Duncan delivers a powerful, sexy new version of the
werewolf legend, a riveting and monstrous thriller--with a
profoundly human heart.
Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf. Now just over 200 years old,
Jake has an insatiable appreciation for good scotch, books, and the
pleasures of the flesh, with a voracious libido and a hunger for
meat that drives him crazy each full moon. Although he is
physically healthy, Jake has slipped into a deep existential
crisis, considering taking his own life and ending a legend that
has lived for thousands of years. But there are two dangerous
groups--one new, one ancient--with reasons of their own for wanting
Jake very much alive.
