The grisly murder of a diplomat’s son in Central Park draws NYPD Detective Gerald Meeker and FBI Special Agent Andee Trakes into a twisted and confusing investigation. Within hours, the evidence indicates the man was executed in the manner saved for werewolves. Andee Trakes is assigned to liaison with a history professor who is an expert on folklore and legends. Professor Alwyn Lloyd not only agrees the method of death was indeed an execution, he claims to be a werewolf.

If you could sum up Shadow of the Moon in three words, what would they be?

Very Entertaining listening.

What other book might you compare Shadow of the Moon to and why?

This is somewhat out of my usual genre so that is difficult, but to me it incorporates the best of crime fiction and paranormal, for a synergy that is very riveting.

What does Paul J. McSorley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voice is rich and full and he gives the text integrity and believability that is essential in a story like this. The writing is solid, but the voice moves this into five stars overall.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Perpetrators don't have to have two legs.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to another book and another performance by this narrator.

A man is not great because he is a good man. A great man can be good, evil, or any shade of gray in between. A great man is a man who sees the world around him, and changes it to suit him, instead of letting it change him to suit itself. Lowin Fenly didn't want to be a hero, and he never thought of being a villain, but sometimes the path that must be walked by great men leads to dark places. Body twisted by dark magic, the scribe-turned-Knight must learn to control the beast he is becoming, or risk losing the few remnants of humanity he clings to.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it has a strong storyline brought to life with a gifted narrator, a fantasy epic to be reckoned with.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like the main character who doesn't shy from action and snappy dialogue.

What does Paul J. McSorley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. McSorley is the master's touch in this competent story. His rich voice nourishes like sweet, warm honey--his versatility is first rate among major narrators. The even, well modulated voice is easy listening and when the extra octane is needed he delivers--sometimes understated--never tiresome--exciting when necessary. This product is made much better by his expert voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes indeed; no impulse to move--just listen.

Any additional comments?

I can recommend this audiobook due primarily to the deft narration--a great book to play and just relax!
