Publisher's Summary

With having to leave the commission for a year while things cool off politically, Mark finds that the church has loaned him out to the FBI, who have been trying for years now to get an experienced monster and demon expert in their newest division, to help train and educate the agents there on just what they will be facing. Finding out that Mark actually is one of those very monsters has made them want him even more - not just for what he can bring to the table but because they do need to check off that newest minority checkbox, even if no one knows they exist.

Mark doesn't mind the new assignment; being closer to home means it will be easier to visit with family, and the agents all seem nice enough. Plus the FBI has a bigger budget and gets a lot nicer toys than Mark is used to. However, while Mark knows how to deal with devils, demons, and even the nastier monsters out there, he doesn't know anything about how to deal with a sociopath werewolf who has gone full psycho and started to murder coeds.

That's more of a human problem, after all.

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyed!"

    Mark is one of The Vatican's secret weapons. He belongs to The Hammer Commission, an elite group of people who fight the unseen monsters that society know nothing about. At the moment, Mark is on lone to the FBI to try to help them and teach them about Monster hunting. Mark is different though, as well as being part of the team, he is a Were. His supernatural abilities help him with his job, so when a rouge and unhinged Were, starts killing and turning females, it's up to him and the FBI to bring him down. It's not going to be easy though, as the Were is extremely strong, stronger than he should be. Can they stop him before things get seriously out of hand?

    Having not realised that this is book two, The Hammer Commision being book 1, I have to say that it does work well as a stand alone. There are a few questions that I had but nothing that stopped me enjoying this as much as I did. I really enjoyed the interactions between the FBI and Mark and his friends. Sometimes snarky, sometimes funny, it added a little levity to an otherwise dark read.

    The plot was fast paced and action packed. It's a typical serial killer book but with supernaturals. A serial killer is bad enough, but when it's a Werewolf, it's even worse! We get to see the serial killers POV which added to the overall story. It's well written and executed. All the characters were well written and developed as well.

    In all. this is a great read. It has all the elements of a mystery but with the added bonus of Supernaturals added into the mix. I must check out book 1 now!!

    Doug Tisdale Jr. was great. He really knew how to tell this story. He had the right tones at the right times and amped up the tension when needed. He is a narrator that I will have to check out.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Story
    "A wild ride with Weres and the FBI!"

    Imagine if the things that go bump in the night really existed. Who would take out the evil nasty Demons, Devils, Fae and monsters? Well, The Vatican has a secret team of monster hunters called the Hammmer Commission, chartered through Interpol, for just such a task. Mark is their leading agent and after a mission goes bad, he is lent to the FBI to help train their monster hunting teams. At the same time, a seriously twisted werewolf is torturing and killing women in Virginia, and the team is sent to investigate. What they find is horrific in the extreme, and only the help of the local Weres and Mark's wife, a WereCougar, do they manage to bring him down and stop the cause of his rampage. As Mark says, they may be monsters, but it doesnt mean they are evil. This is the second book in the series, but it is stand alone enough to follow along with no problems. With well rounded characters, a well developed world, villains that really have bite and some serious snark, this is a must read for any fans of Urban fantasy.

    As far as narration, Doug Tisdale Jr. does a great job with the material, keeping the narration flowing and bringing the characters to life. He is quickly rising in my list of top narrators.

    Story
    "! Give me more!"

    Mark does not care if you don't like him. He does not work for the FBI, he is on loan from the Vatican. So that a gives his the confidence to tell it like it is. When your faith is not strong or you do not believe, you don't hunt for monsters. If you think that all monsters are evil, tell me that after you see me change and we've had a beer.

    Mark knows his business and if you want to learn, then listen to his suggestions. If not, remember he is on loan to the FBI. There is fast action in this urban fantasy with a serial killer at the center of the story. I feel there was a loose end, the motivation to the killer, but you don't know that until the end. The ending is so good you really are not concern with the motivation of the killer.

    There is a little gore, what do you expect if the edge on your machete is a little dull? Yes, it is a little disrespectful to use a head as a soccer ball but you did piss Mark off.

    Yes I hope that Mr Stry will continue on this story,

    The development of the characters a big part of the interest in the adventure and the witty chat keeps you interested

    Mr Tisdale is a master at his craft and I look forward to more of his works

    "Fantastic story and narrator."
    What made the experience of listening to Wolf Killer the most enjoyable?

    I received a copy of this audiobook book from the author for an impartial review. The book did not build slowly, but started off with a whirlwind speed that did not let up until the very end.


    What other book might you compare Wolf Killer to and why?

    I don't have a comparison to other books because the story was unique and the characters very real.


    Have you listened to any of Doug Tisdale Jr.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Doug Tisdale Jr.'s performances, but will probably do so in the future.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It did not make me laugh or cry but it did make me feel uplifted.


    Any additional comments?

    Anxiously awaiting a sequel and will be checking out author's and narrators other books and performances.

    "A Wolf on the Loose.."
    Any additional comments?



    There is a serial killer on the loose who happens to be a werewolf.

    A Paranormal Task Force is assembled to catch the killer and so the novel really begins.

    The story line is filled with action, suspense, and a few twists making it an Overall

    Entertaining read.


    Doug Tisdale Jr. did well with the narration.

    Story
    "Nice to see something other than just Werewolves"

    I liked this story quite a bit. Mark is a real asset to the FBI as a lycan and its immediately made apparent to the FBI how little they know about any Lycan communities. The gist of this story is a Lycan serial killer is on the loose and has been for quite a while sitting right under everyones noses. It takes one to know one is certainly the case here as a girl escapes from the killer and his house of cards comes falling down. There is a nice twist in the story as to why he is killing these college girls. It was a very enjoyable listen and the narrator did a good job also. I hope the next book in this series gets an audible release as well.

    Story
    "Totally and Surprisingly Very Good"
    Any additional comments?

    I had no idea what I was getting into with this listen. I took a chance and it paid off. In spades.

    First off, there was an otherworldly element to the story line but it was so well-crafted that you did not question for one moment that werewolves and werecougars were real. In essence, the story was a cat and mouse thriller about how the good guys chased down the bad guys. Along the way, you are treated with some humor, a little humanity, a spattering of religion for a story that keeps you listening from start to finish.

    The narrator was excellent! There were some challenges since many times multiple people were talking, including priests and well, a really bad guy, but the narrator kept the voices separate and the emotion in check and you rode with him to the inevitable conclusion. Totally worth it!!
