Soldiers returning from the War on Terror bring back terrors of their own, and have trouble coping with normal life after combat. But few of these terrors are as tangible as those brought home by Special Forces Captain John Rogers, who is attacked by a lycanthrope. He survives but is infected by the curse. After returning to the real world, things fall apart for John. His wife divorces him and he struggles in the grip of this new affliction. He is finally able to get some sort of a life together when he accidentally hunts in the wrong territory and has a run-in with the local werewolf pack. Honey strips at the club where John works as a bouncer, when he's not a monster. While moonlighting as a prostitute, she accidentally roles the wrong john. This john is carrying a package meant for a werewolf pack, and when they come looking for it they find John Rogers waiting.

Everyone knows that I'm a sucker for first person POV, so when this story started out in that writing style I have to automatically add a star. But this book gets deeper than that. The writer goes back and forth, first person on one chapter, and third person the next. The whole story bounces back and forth this way to give you the things that are happening behind the sense, and I found that completely necessary to tell the complex story line. The incorporation of two different cultural urban legends I found fascinating. It gives the story the "something different" factor that I am always looking for. The protagonist, John Rogers, is forced to make volition to continue through with his dual self. I found the internal struggle between his human nature and animal instincts intriguing. I always talk about "write what you know", and it is very apparent that this is what the author did, and it makes this story shine.
