Harry Shannon's 'Bad Seed' was excellent, his 'Night of the Beast' though flawed was fun and raised the bar for his storytelling skills, and now 'Night of the Werewolf' has far surpassed the two earlier works. If you like both detective fiction and horror stories, this will certainly satisfy your appetite. Don't let the listless title fool you--the story starts at 90 mph and takes off from there. Shannon's style is fast, articulate, artfully no-nonsense. You know he really likes his characters, but you never feel that they're safe (he makes sure of that in the second chapter). There's murder, mayhem, and gore, and part of the appeal of the book is that Shannon seems to take great delight in ratcheting up the stakes for his protagonists, all the while surrounding them with growing menace in the midst of a clan of werewolves who live--where else?--his mythical Nevada. There's the distraction of a motorcycle gang that is a little too disconnected, but overall Night of the Werewolf is what we used to call a page-turner. And the quality of the writing makes you want to take it slower than your terrified instincts tell you to take it. Settle in late at night and start reading. You will not be disappointed. We'll be looking forward to more Joe Case stories from Shannon in the future.

Parts of this novel read like a fun mystery novel with touches of noir, other parts offer a very poetic horror telling the history of a pack of werewolves. Very fast-moving finale that goes on for several chapters and keeps upping the ante on the hapless hero and his lady friend. Reccomended.

Forget the paramedics. With this latest blood-tinged invitation to Harry Shannon's nightmares, chances of recovery are slim anyway. In this second of the 'Night' trilogy, Shannon navigates a blood-soaked bobsled ride to hell. This time, the setting is Salt Lick, Nevada, a western town where it's werewolves instead of buffalo that roam. If you prefer your adrenaline spiked, the prose hot and the wit as sharp and dry as the Nevada landscape, don't miss Harry's latest tour de horror.

What a great story! I really enjoyed Night of the Werewolf. It it is reminiscent of the early 80's when horror was king. Like Night of the Beast, Shannon sets his book in the high desert. In LA, Joe Case is an ex-cop whose sister begs him to look for her husband. In Hollywood, motion picture executive Kelly McCammon makes a huge mistake when she allows her receptionist to handle a mysterious package. Joe and Kelly's paths cross in Lake Tahoe when the realize they are both searching for the same thing; Kelly's package and Joe's no-good brother-in-law. Their trail leads them to a strange town called Salt Lick, Nevada. Stange happenings, gruesome murders, an ancient pack of werewolves and a gang of bikers conspire to keep Kelly and Joe from leaving Salt Lick. Night of the Werewolf is the second in the Night trilogy by newcomer Harry Shannon whose books will be remembered along side those of King, Koontz and McCammon

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of Harry Shannon's second book in the 'Night of' trilogy. This is a scary, witty and very well-written werewolf story that keeps you guessing all the way to the exciting climax. It would make a fantastic movie! All the elements are there for a fun, can't-put-it-down read: colorful characters, suspense,gore,irony...all presented with a graceful literary touch. A definite 5 out of 5 stars!!!

Harry Shannon easily tops last year's NIGHT OF THE BEAST with the second book in his horror-pulp 'Night Trilogy.' Joe Case is a cop who has lost his family and drinks too much. He goes after his brother-in-law at the request of his sister. Kelly McCammon is a hollywood 'd girl' who runs afoul of the mob and is trying to track down who stole money and blamed it on her. The two meet in Lake Tahoe and follow a joint trail to dinky Salt Lick, Nevada. They check into a Psycho hotel and the fun begins. We know there is a clan of werewolves, and it is probably the biker gang that hangs around Salt Lick, but then again maybe not. This one will make a GREAT movie. If you like horror that shocks and spoofs and thrills all at the same time, get this one and tell your friends. There is one sex scene that will stand your hair up!

Bright new star Harry Shannon manages to weave a burned out cop, a girl running from the mob, two hitmen, a badass biker gang and a pack of werewolves into one scary, action-packed 'B movie' of a novel. As if that weren't enough, his writing is controlled and tight and noir-ish, so that a dark humor suffuses the entire experience. I really, really enjoyed this book. I think Shannon nicely topped last years hit debut 'Night of the Beast.' I'm told this is the second in a trilogy of horror pulp tales, with the final one appearing in 2004. If you like action, chills, horror and black laughter do yourself a favor and grab this one for a rainy night.

One dark night, out in the desert, an arguing couple with a metal briefcase leaves the main highway by accident and drives up to a `Psycho¿ style dump called the Salt Lick Motel. The clerk seems reluctant to rent them a room, but they insist on checking in. Moments later they check out for good when some pretty horrific stuff goes down. In LA, Joe Case is an ex-cop who lost his family in a home invasion robbery. Case had a breakdown of sorts and is now trying to rebuild his life. His sister talks him into trying to track down her abusive spouse, who has vanished without a trace. Meanwhile, Hollywood executive Kelly McCammon makes a huge mistake when she allows her receptionist to handle a mysterious package that ends up containing a fortune in bearer bonds that should have been delivered to the Mob. Assuming Kelly stole the money, the Mob murders her boss and put a contract out on her life. These different threads come together when Case and Kelly meet in Lake Tahoe. For a variety of reasons, they join forces. The trail they are following takes them to that weird little town called Salt Lick, Nevada. It turns out Salt Lick is being pestered by a large gang of bikers. When a tourist couple is brutally murdered by what may or may not be a pack of wolves, Case helps the sheriff and the local Doc examine the crime scene and move the bodies. Big mistake. Now the bikers won¿t let them leave town. Eventually Kelly and Case retreat to an isolated mountain cabin, where they confront an ancient mystery, the gang of bikers and two pissed-off hit men. At the climax, they find themselves face to face with a viscous pack of werewolves no longer bound by an ancient promise that has already been broken. There¿s even some romance along the way! NIGHT OF THE WEREWOLF is the second novel in a projected trilogy of `Night¿ books (the first was 2002¿s ¿Night of the Beast.¿) This novel is a thrill ride that reads like the best of the horror films of the great 1980¿s. Harry Shannon weaves a tale that is both engrossing and horrific, leaving the reader on the edge of their seat. Bring lots of popcorn.
