Bad Wolf A Review

Detective Lara Mendes’s hard work finally pays off when she gets the chance to join the homicide detail. There’s only one catch; she has to partner up with a cop no one wants to work with.

John Gallagher is a veteran homicide detective who loves stomping bad guys and hates partners. When the Lieutenant saddles him with this green kid named Mendes, his first reaction is to ditch her but a call comes in about a body on the river bank and the rotation says they’re up.

What they find are human remains, mutilated and partially devoured. Their investigation reveals a killer stalking the city with a pack of vicious, feral dogs.
And the suspect believes he is a werewolf.

But this is Portland, where crazy bastards outnumber normal ones ten to one. Except there’s another catch. The crazy werewolf guy? He isn’t crazy…

Bad Wolf is a solid début novel from screen writer Tim McGregor.  The story takes a little while to get going but once it does it becomes a fun read.  Tim’s screen writing experience can be seen throughout the novel.  Bad Wolf reads like a slick action / cop movie, if you know what I mean.  And with all Hollywood blockbusters it leaves itself wide open for a sequel, which is something I’ll be looking forward to. 

As with the vast majority of début novels, the editing could have done with being a little tighter. There are a few plot elements that are introduced that  are not fully developed.     On the whole this was a satisfying read Tim has a strong solid writing style that will surely become more polished as he develops his craft.  This is a book that is definitely worth your time and money Based on this novel Tim McGregor, has found himself on my one to watch list, and I eagerly await Tim’s second novel.
