In the old days wolves roamed remote, mysterious Hemlock County, Pennsylvania. Then the great hemlocks, the woods, and the earth was raped and left to die. Now these deserted hills are being haunted by new atrocities. What beast or man is leaving frozen, mangled bodies in the woods? Three unlikely heroes will set out to find the answer: W.T. "Racks" Halvorsen, retired oilfield worker and ex-hunter; Becky Benning, a twelve-year-old who knows only she can save her dying brother -- with magic; and Leah Friedman, a New York physician who suspects the truth behind the killings.
Meet the Author
DAVID POYER grew up in Western Pennsylvania. Millions of copies of his thirty-plus books are in print, including THE MED, THE GULF, THE CIRCLE, THE PASSAGE, TOMAHAWK, CHINA SEA, BLACK STORM, THE COMMAND, THE THREAT, KOREA STRAIT, THE WEAPON, THE CRISIS, and THE TOWERS, USA Today best-selling novels of the modern Navy; and FIRE ON THE WATERS, A COUNTRY OF OUR OWN, and THAT ANVIL OF OUR SOULS, historical fiction set during the Civil War. His work has been translated into Japanese, Dutch, and Italian, and rights have been sold for films and audiobooks.
Poyer’s most enduring body of work, however, may be his Hemlock County series, set in a Faulknerian imaginary county in rural Western Pennsylvania. The first was THE DEAD OF WINTER (Tor Books); the second, WINTER IN THE HEART (Forge Books, 1993). AS THE WOLF LOVES WINTER was published in April 1996; it was an alternate selection of The Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club. THUNDER ON THE MOUNTAIN, a historical novel set in Depression-era Pennsylvania, was released in March 1999 by Forge Books/St Martin’s Press, and received starred reviews from all three major reviewing agencies.
Poyer holds a master's degree from George Washington University and has taught or lectured at Annapolis, Flagler College, University of Pittsburgh, Old Dominion University, Armed Forces Staff College, University of North Florida, The New College, and other institutions. He has been a writer in residence at Flagler and Annapolis, and a guest on PBS's "Writer to Writer" series and on Voice of America. His fiction has been required reading in the U.S. Naval Academy’s “Literature of the Sea” course, along with that of Joseph Conrad and Herman Melville. He was a founding editor of the New Virginia Review and is currently a consulting editor for Grenade magazine. He teaches in the Creative Writing program at Wilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, PA.

The forests come alive with Poyers narrative. His use of images in the shadows of the natural world gives the reader the feeling he is there in the moonlit woods along side the protagonist.
