    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Nicholas says: "Unexpectedly Enjoyable"
    "Would have been better as a short story."
    Overall

    I hate when writers do this. The summary makes it sound like this is the next book in the series. It's not. It's a short story that someone gave the writer too many pages to fill with. The main character of the series, Owen Pitt, isnt even mentioned in this book but once maybe twice. The whole thing is about Earl.

    Now earl's a really cool character. And a story from his point of view is a good idea. But I just don't care about him enough to last a whole freakin novel. Not only that, but significant parts of the book are from the perspective of a real jerk of an MCB agent and a real jerk of a freelance jerk. Call me old fashioned, but I don't like haveing to switch back and forth between characters in a book, it annoys the heck out of me, especially when half of them don't deserve more than a bullet.

    This should have been a short story, or perhaps a first act of a book which then switched back to Owen,(since he is he character we care about) since almost nothing happens in it to advance the overall story arc of the series. Plus, slight spoilers ahead, the ending was kinda lame. We get it Larry, the government is the bad guy, were right there with you on that one, no need to lay it on so thick.

    Overall the book is worth a listen, but they should change the description to show that this book is more of an extended short story or spinoff of the series.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."
    "Definitely written by a POG."

    Story

    like somebody else wrote, its kinda like the show 24 with zombies. except that 24 was watchable. the author spent waaaay too much time researching ways that zombies could actually happen and not enough time researching real weapons and tactics and learning how not to be a d@#%ebag.

    its the kind of thing were somebody finds out about some "advanced" new technology and then proceeds to act like they know all about it and everything tactical, for instance the author mentions "liquid tazers" several times as if that's what everyone is using nowadays, even though most people have never even seen one and the idea that terrorist are going around tazing people is pretty stupid.

    the characters are one dimensional and the lead character is an ass#@!$ who thinks he's gods gift to the Operational Community, and of course the first woman he meets starts off as a bitch but can't resist falling in love with his Holyness. Constitutional rights go right out the window for these people. the whole book reads like a POG (Person Other than a Grunt)'s wet dream.
