Mark Wiseman thought he had his curse under control. He thought he'd kept it secret.

He was wrong.

Bernard Roberts is a wealthy, influential man, and he knows all about the curse that runs through Mark's veins. He knows how mark's parents were killed eight years ago. If Mark wants Bernard to keep this knowledge to himself, he'll have to do what Bernard wants. He'll have to use his curse to kill.

But if Mark Wiseman begins to lose control of the curse, he will lose everything he has: his life and freedom, and the woman he loves.

Lycanthropic Orange Coast College student Mark Wiseman controls his urge to kill when he shifts to a werewolf he also hides his condition from everyone until he is caught changing by a security camera while working in the Tape Library of the Computer Operations of Free State Insurance. The firm¿s CEO Bernard Roberts lives for his work though he makes time even at his executive office for sex with his executive secretary Carol Emrich. He owns the videotape in which Mark is filmed shifting. The wealthy amoral mogul blackmails Mark into cooperating with his desires. He orders Mark to kill any board member supporting a merger that if agreed will lead to an audit and ultimately expose Bernard's embezzling of company funds. To further insure Mark cooperates, Bernard has evidence that links Mark to the bloody murders of the werewolf¿s parents. Mark¿s only hope for freedom resides with Carol whom he just met and can sense her attraction to him. --- This is an entertaining fast-paced horror thriller in which readers initially will wonder whether the wolf will do the killings or not and whether Mark will ever be free from the malevolent Bernard. J.F. Gonzalez keeps the audience wondering how Mark will expedite himself from this mess once he decides not to kill Bernard at least for now. Though neither of the male leads showcases much in the way of any redeeming qualities as a survival of the fittest killer instincts rules fans of in your face werewolf tales with plenty of gore will want to read this exciting story. --- Harriet Klausner

This is a the second novel I picked by J.F. Gonzalez (the first being The Beloved). I have loved both novels I have read. This one was fast paced, scary, full of violence, and overall a great read. Highly recommended read for horror fans!

I loved this book. It has everything that a good horror novel should have, and I devoured it in only a couple of sittings. J.F. Gonzalez is one of the most talented horror authors out there at this time, and for me this book only cemented that belief in my mind even more. Typically in a horror novel the werewolf is the evil monster that must be defeated, but not in Shapeshifter. Mark Wiseman is normal guy who unfortunately turns into a werewolf during the full moon. The monster of the story is his boss, Bernard, who uses Mark's curse for his own personal gain. The characterization is wonderful. Gonzalez has created believable characters who readers can sympathize with, going through their fear, desperation and romance all within the pages. I loved it, and I can't wait to read something else by J.F. Gonzalez.
