The Wolves of Paris is a very engaging story. The historical accuracy of the descriptions of life in fifteenth century Paris really lend to the authenticity of the novel.The characters are very engaging. It makes it difficult to hit pause and quit listening.

A definitely thumbs up for anyone looking for an enjoyable story!

Of all the desperate women in German-occupied Paris, Gabriela Reyes is the least likely to scratch out her survival as a whore for a Gestapo agent. After fascists murdered her mother and brother and tortured her father in an insane asylum, she hates the Germans as much as she fears them. But when she discovers the man responsible for destroying her family, she decides to become his mistress to try to free her father and avenge her family.

Michael Wallace tells a moving story, at times too authentic for the comfort of the reader, but which leaves you hungry for more. Definitely adding his other novels to my wish list.

The Red Rooster is a powerful, thought provoking novel set in WWII. This story takes you through the events that shape the minds and characters of sadists, collaborators, heroes, and heroines. Everyone is a "simple soldat", just a simple soldier fighting his or her own individual war and finding a way to survive. Where victory comes to those who don't give in to self preservation or self aggrandizement, but who come together to help others in their own individual battles.
