Publisher's Summary

In the dark, they are watching...

They are waiting for you.

No one has ever lived to tell the horrifying truth about them. Yet even now the Wolfen are gathered in the night-dark alleys ... unseen, poised ... ready to destroy their helpless human prey. Only one man and one woman, trained cops, willing to risk their lives, stand in the way.

©1978 Walker & Collier (P)2014 David N. Wilson

Classic Narrated Wonderfully by Robert Fass

Imagin being a cop on a call and being attacked by dogs. These aren't any or ordinary dogs, these dogs are Wolfen. And they don't just bite they tear your body to pieces leaving only blood and body parts behind.  Now your a detective assigned to investigate the murder of your fellow officers. How would you explain the Wolfen? Could you? They know your scent and are tracking you. What is your move.

That is the story behind Whitley Strieber's Wolfen Narrated expertly by Robert Fass. This Audiobook is a captivating listen from start to finish and kept me intrigued as to what would happen next.

Non stop action

The narrative in this book keeps you wanting to know what's next. The best book I've heard so far.

Different.

This is my first time reading this and it was not at all what I expected!! The story is about 2 police officers who stumble upon an age old secret that is intent on keeping it a secret any way they can!! Initially I thought this was about the typical werewolves but it's not and I think because I went into this having not read the blurb nor any reviews, is why I ended up enjoying it so much.

Anyway, this is a well written (for it's time) and entertaining story. I loved how it was told from the Police officers and the Wolfen's POV. It was eerie being inside their heads! It is also quite a gorey book but I've read worse! If you want a unique werewolf read and one that will keep your attention throughout, then this is one you should try.

Robert Fass was really good. He nailed the tenseness of certain situations and had me biting my nails waiting to see what happened!

First read when I was in my twenties ... SCARY!

I've loved this book since the eighties, when I first read it. I passed my book onto others, who also said they stayed up at night, fearing the Wolfen and keeping the lights on and blinds closed. The movie was the worst adaptation of a book I had seen, up until Dean Koontz's Watchers was ruined onscreen. With today's CGI, this could be a classic horror movie that scares your pants off, so I really hope someone does another one and sticks to the book!

The premise that these creatures were the basis for the werewolf stories made perfect sense, and the way Strieber describes the claw they cast from the muddy impression at the junkyard, you are fearful just hearing about its perfect killing design.

This book will be worth every hour listening to it - or reading it. I look forward to sharing it with an entire new generation of horror lovers. Enjoy - and you're welcome!

Brilliant early work from supremo Whitley Strieber

Engaging from the start, with a brilliant performance from narrator Robert Fass, this story belies the encounters with unknown presences that were to later shape much of this writer's career.

A masterful horror work, if this could be conveyed with the same distinction into film it would be an instant classic, like the book itself surely is.

clever, fiendish werewolves...

If you like werewolves then this one is for you, these werewolves are very cunning and the story is pretty brisk from the very start, while it will not go down in history as a 5-star work of Brilliance it is a good listen.

Plausible “werewolf’s”

I’ve loved this story for years. The narration is excellent. The set up is good enough to make you buy the fact that werewolves could exist... just not in the classic horror story format. A definite spine chiller
