Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Forgotten Room and Deep Storm is back with a new thriller that follows the trail of a killer who cannot exist...featuring Jeremy Logan, the renowned investigator of the supernatural and fantastic.

Legends, no matter how outlandish, are often grounded in reality. This has been the guiding principle behind the exhilarating career of Jeremy Logan, the "enigmologist" - an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation - previously seen in The Forgotten Room, The Third Gate, and Deep Storm. Logan has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never been more true than now.

Logan travels to an isolated writers' retreat deep in the Adirondacks to finally work on his book when the remote community is rocked by the grisly discovery of a dead hiker on Desolation Mountain. The body has been severely mauled, but the unusual savagery of the bite and claw marks call into question the initial suspicions of a wild bear attack. When Logan is asked to help investigate, he discovers no shortage of suspects capable of such an attack - and no shortage of locals willing to point the finger and spread incredible rumors. One rumor, too impossible to believe, has even the forest ranger believing in werewolves. As Logan gets to know the remote deep-woods landscape, including a respected woman scientist still struggling with the violent loss of her father in these very woods, Logan realizes he's up against something he has never seen before.

His most action-packed and white-knuckled novel to date, Full Wolf Moon is the perfect combination of exotic locales, provocative science, and raw action that make for a deeply entertaining Lincoln Child blockbuster.

So disappointed

I have read all of Lincoln child's books both his alone and with D Preston. I have loved them all except this one, poor storytelling. It is almost as if he found an old copy of a first draft and went with it no editing or changes. The reader did a fine job with what he had to work with.

How bad was it....

It's true, what you've always heard....Don't judge a book by its cover. Because the cover on this one is great.

If I was Child's publicist, I'd have told him, "Back to the drawing board, Linky. You've got way more talent, more imagination, and enough money already banked to be mutilating your respectable reputation with this kind of twaddle." Child brings nothing new to the werewolf lore and seems to be grabbing onto anything floating by to save this one from flowing into the storm drain (sewer pipe). Desolation Mountain....Ooooooh! Black Water Lake......Eeeeeekkk! Crazy father-daughter mad scientist team........Aaaagggghhh! Isolated backwoods Hillbillies...... Eeeeewwwww! Over zealous Park Rangers and a few side-eyed locals round out an ersatz thriller that even Scooby Doo and the team would have felt was inadequate.

Boring and predictable

This is a very disappointing book from one of my favorite authors. It was boring and predictable. The narrator was monotone and made the story even harder to get through.

Not Best Effort

This was a weird book even for Lincoln Child! Not sure I would spend a credit! I waited two months for this book and disappointed!

Disappointing 🙁

This book was very disappointing. The ware wolf theme was very uninteresting, like I've heard it all before. So far I've listened to The Third Gate and The Forgotten Room in this series. I totally loved The Third Gate, was a little disappointed with The Forgotten Room but it is still a whole lot better than Full Wolf Moon. I didn't feel that it was quite as well put together as the others. It kind of felt rushed and a lot shorter than the others.

Disappointing

I have read everything by this author and am usually transfixed to the point where I can't put the book down until finished. I was so excited that he had a new title being released, I even pre-ordered it. What a let-down! The plot was slow and unusually predictable, even contrived at times. The whole Werewolf theme was cheesy and not very interesting, which surprised me because L.C. typically writes about unorthodox but fascinating subjects and scenarios. The narrator tried hard but his monotone voice only added to my boredom. Very sorry to have wasted credit on this book.

I kept waiting for the twist that never came!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

More developed characters, an explanation for the murders that was even remotely interesting.

What could Lincoln Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have spent more time delving into the strange family clan in the Adirondacks.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Full Wolf Moon?

The long introduction to the artist lodge, which ended up being rather umimportant to the story.

Boring ! And no suspense or horror.

This was the lest scary werewolf story I have ever heard ! It never built to anything and the characters were never developed to make me like them or not or care about them . In my opinion this book missed the mark .

Another nice Lincoln Child

I’d liked this one and if you know the writer’s past works, then it is a safe bet you’ll like this one too.

Enjoy. I did.
