    Fascinating read!

    This book is an amazingly good read that will keep you guessing as your stomach clenches in fear. Peppered with what some will call an unhealthy dose of liberal leaning truths, Wild Thing holds up to its name. It will be painfully too funny for readers who recognize how humans have tortured each other and Mother Nature through self-destructive behavior. It will also touch open, raw nerves of those of us who are wrapped tightly in self-Righteousness. (This touched nerve might explain the low ratings of some readers).

    This is SUCH a smart read on so many levels. I encourage all of you to look past the lower ratings and read for yourself. It is well worth it.

    Reviewed by Dianne C. for Readers Favorite!

    Dr. Lionel Azimuth AKA Dr. Pietro Brnwa is incognito! He is in the Witness Protection program hiding from the "MOB." Dr. Violet Hurst is a paleontologist that works for a billionaire who loves dealing on long shots. His nickname is Rec Bill (Reclusive Billionaire). The two doctors meet when Rec Bill hires Dr. Azimuth to go to Minnesota with Violet to check out a story about a man-eating monster in a lake there that has reportedly killed several people, and to keep an eye on Violet and make sure she stays safe. Is the story true, or is it just a hoax? They know that somehow 4 people have been killed, and one seriously injured. Is Dr. Azimuth there to help Dr. Hurst prove there is a monster, or to disprove it? What does Rec Bill want them to do? While working on the theory of the monster the two doctors have a run-in with meth-making restaurant owner, various conflicting monster accounts, and even the "MOB." What secrets will be laid bare before they find the monster?

    "Wild Thing" took me a little while to really get into it, but after a couple of chapters it peeked my interest. Sometimes there was a little too much jumping to different time periods...but I could understand where some of it tied in with the story! I did always wonder what was going to come next, what would go wrong next, and who were really the good guys? There is a lot of cursing and sexual innuendos...a little more than necessary to make a great story!
