The international sensation -- a riveting and electrifying blend of mystery, terror, and tense, violent action

Anna Heymes fears she is losing her mind. The wife of a top-ranking Parisian official, she suffers from amnesia and terrifying hallucinations -- a living nightmare made more horrifying when psychiatric testing reveals that Anna has undergone drastic cosmetic surgery . . . though she cannot recall when or why.

In the tenth arrondissement of Paris, a rookie police inspector and a seasoned veteran called out of retirement investigate the horrific murders of three anonymous young women -- illegal Turkish aliens who could not have deserved such a brutal, inhuman death.

From the murky night streets of clandestine Paris to the teeming fleshpot of Istanbul, two bizarre and terrible stories will become one -- as prey and predator, manipulated and manipulator come together in a storm of blood and fury . . . in the hideous shadow of the wolf.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow and agonizing I tried, but I really couldn't get into this one. Although things were looking promising with Anna going through tests for her memory loss, the book was moving way too slowly. Also, quite a few characters were introduced. Since the book is based in Paris, the characters have long, hard to pronounce names that I couldn't easily remember. Life is too short and there are too many good books out there to spend time on the ones that don't capture your interest right away!
