Overview

Homicide detective Allison Goodnight has a big problem. One look at the mutilated victim in her latest case tells her he has been killed by a rogue werewolf. She ought to know; she's a werewolf, too. Her whole family is--members of an ancient species separate from humans but passing as human. It is urgent that she close this case, without revealing the killer's nature, before more people die and humans' racial memory of her kind reawakens. But the killer is a stranger unknown to any of the local clan...and her new partner is watching her with unnerving intensity. If he sees too much, she may have to turn killer herself to protect her people.
Zane Kerr has a problem. He was excited to be working with the detective having the highest clearance rate in the department, but Allison's secretive conduct of this case disturbs him. And when the description of a mysterious blonde woman seen with the victim matches a number of Allison's relatives, and even Allison herself, he has to wonder if she is trying to protect, not catch, the killer. One way or another he is determined to find out.

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer - J. Boone
I read (and have read) a lot of novels just about anything that is well-written with interesting character/personality development--I must say that this book has more than exceeded my expectations. ENJOY!
Reviewer - Mooncat X
I enjoyed the book a lot. Nice solid depiction of a police detective working a case, with very well developed werewolf culture included. Recommend this for people who enjoy a strong, smart female lead, and werewolf fans. Not as erotic or sensual as Anita Blake books, but solid plotting and a real feel of suspense and danger in the book.
Reviewer - Kat max
I've come to expect well crafted police stories with a twist from this author, and this story is no exception. This is a novel that works on two levels with a chase to catch a killer and to find the truth. If you like a well constructed and written mystery with a touch of the supernatural then this book is for you.

Meet the Author

Lee Killough has been storytelling since the age of four or five, when she started making up her own bedtime stories, then later, her own episodes of her favorite radio and TV shows. So of course when she discovered science fiction and mysteries about age eleven, she began writing her own science fiction and mysteries. It took a husband, though, years later, to convince her to try selling her work. Her first published stories were science fiction and one short story, "Symphony For a Lost Traveler", was nominated for a Hugo Award in 1985.


She used to joke that she wrote SF because she dealt with non-humans every day...spending twenty-seven years as chief technologist in the Radiology Department at Kansas State University's Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. At the same time, she also used to train horses. She has lived most of her life in Kansas, but when her late husband was in the Air Force at the end of the sixties, they lived two unforgettable years in Washington D.C. During which she witnessed the hippie invasion of Georgetown, the Poor People's march on D.C., urban riots that set fires in neighborhoods close to theirs, and their neighborhood crawling with police and FBI for a day while law enforcement tracked two men who gunned down an FBI agent a few blocks from their home.


Because she loves both SF and mysteries, her work combines the two genres. Although published as SF, most of her novels are actually mysteries with SF or fantasy elements...with a preference--thanks to a childhood hooked on TV cop shows--for cop protagonists. She has set her procedurals in the future, on alien words, and in the country of dark fantasy. Her best known detective is vampire cop Garreth Mikaelian, of Blood Hunt and Bloodlinks, reprinted together in an omnibus edition BloodWalk. She is a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime.

    Pretty good some big holes

    Page turner that flows smoothly. The setting is credible but there are inconsistencies. I'd recommend it and will probably read a sequel if there is one.

    Great police/werewolf story

    Fast paced, and well researched. Hopefully a sequal will be soon published.

    Killough Does It Again...

    If anything, she does it better in her latest. _Wilding Nights_ is a page-turner with teeth, solid action, tight plotting and characters that had me begging for a sequel before I even finished. This is a fine police procedural with the added seasoning of a whole new mythos about werewolves and something you don't see often today - a main character with her head screwed on straight about who and what she is. A thorougly enjoyable read.
