Dirty Harry meets Twilight. Number 3 in the break-out series and a follow-up to Monster Hunter International and Monster Hunter Vendetta.
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. But another force is working to bring about the creation of a whole new species of werewolf. When darkness falls, the final hunt begins, and the only thing standing in their way is a handful of locals, a lot of firepower, and Earl Harbinger's stubborn refusal to roll over and play dead.

this title is a class above vendetta or the first book in the series. the story flows much more seamlessly and the characters are better developed.
You gotta love werewolf's! If you do... buy this book... really the whole series!
He is also good! And he was good on this one!
Another good Monster Hunter book!
Teacher and family man.
When I first started listening to this story I was disappointed. I was expecting another story about Owen Pitt, but it became clear early on that Earl Harbinger was taking the lead in this story. Earl experienced a shocking event as he was unexpectedly asked to handle a situation on his own, one where he would face off against his old rival. Nikolai, the Russian werewolf Harbinger has been battling on and off for decades, plays a significant role in the plot, though not necessarily the one either Earl or readers expect.
This story provides readers with Earl's history, and sets up the ancillary backdrop for future books. After overcoming my initial surprise over the fact that Earl, not Pitt, is the protagonist I embraced this story. It is on par with the previous books in the series.
Oliver Wyman delivered another strong performance, which in this case involved a character with a primary and secondary voice. His reading of Nikolai sounded like a good imitation of Christopher Walken, which was at first surprising but later seemed rather appropriate. Though not my favorite narrator, a distinction shared by James Marsters (Dresden Files) and Ray Porter (Joe Ledger Files), he is among the better readers I have heard.
Larry Correia is my new #1 fiction writer. He creates a cast of characters you love and pray they don't die or ones you dislike so much you want to join the "Hunters" just so you can dispatch one or two.
I never thought Bronson Pinchot could be replaced as his reader, but I must say Oliver Wyman is superb!
