Jacqueline CareyPractitioners and fans of the mystery genre have long used Faulkner to shore up its sometimes shaky reputation. Sooner or later, they'll be doing the same with T.R. Pearson.

I started Warwolf last night just to take a little break from War and Peace, which I've been plugging away at for a week or so now. So the plan was just to read a chapter or two of Warwolf for variety's sake. But that didn't happen. I stayed up late last night reading and finished the book this afternoon. Warwolf features the same well-polished prose and attention to characterization and descriptive detail that you find in Mr. Pearson's other books. But what makes this one different is that it is very plot-driven. It's a page-turner! The author has said that the book is a little grim. I'll see that and raise him a "grotesque". You'd have to look hard to find a character that you'd say was "normal". And yet, at the same time, you feel a tenderness for some of them, pity for several others; you feel revolted by several, and then there's one or two that evoke a deep ambivalence. But there aren't any characters in the book who you don't end up feeling strongly about, one way or another, including the minor characters. It's a talented writer who can push that much emotion to you through the pages of a book. Highly recommended.
