For fiction readers, this novel presents an unforgettable protagonist and recounts his gripping and moving story. For horror readers, the story imaginatively spins the familiar werewolf tale and provides a terrifyingly real monster. Pekearo's writing is very sparse and sometimes raw which, when read, translates into a refreshingly honest narration of the protagonist's life and thoughts. Although this book defies categorization, themes of mystery, suspense, horror, survival and love seamlessly mesh to form a fast-moving and engrossing tale. The gruff protagonist, Marlowe, is touchingly genuine; and, his struggle to persevere despite crushing set-backs is poignant and riveting. The plot evolves into a thrilling race against time to determine the identity of a serial killer before the new moon. The only flaw is perhaps the predictability of the killer's identity. But, the book isn't really about apprehending the criminal. It's about Marlowe, and his struggle to live a purposeful life despite an inner, ravening demon dedicated to the destruction of human life.

This book all in all, becomes the complete definition of the word Sublime.
His talent, and frank Honest humour with such a risky topic makes the book haunting. I could go on and on. The way the main charator captivates you, and think differently of everything that goes bump in the night is very eerie,

I wish with all my might you could have written more,
You really were a talent nick, and your story is such a shame

Discharged by the Army after serving as a grunt in Nam, Marlowe Higgins lives in Evelyn near the Ivy River just a spider¿s web outside of Tennessee. He earns a poor man¿s living making hamburgers at Frank¿s greasy spoon make that restaurant as he needs the below poverty level position. Once a month Marloew feels schizoid because he relishes yet fears the full moon when he, like his antecedents before him, turns into a werewolf. He also investigates malicious crimes as a form of sublimation to abate his guilt over killing innocent people during his blood disorder frenzy although Marlowe tries to target killers when he turns wolf albeit not always successfully.----------------- A particularly vicious serial killer has begin horrifically murdering people the media calls this psychopath the Rose Killer for potting flowers in eye sockets of victims. Higgins begins investigating this predator with plans to rip his throat out when he finally hunts him down.--------------------- This engaging paranomral serial killer thriller is an entertaining tale that werewolf fans and investigative vigilante readers will appreciate as the hero seems genuine especially when he agonizes over killing an innocent. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action, but it is Higgins who makes the horror crime thriller work as fans will empathize with his plight while wondering whether we sympathize with the devil. Sadly, Mr. Nicholas Pekearo was killed in 2007 while on duty as a NYPD auxiliary police officer.---------------- Harriet Klausner

If good, scary stories are remotely of interest to you, get this book now and read it now. It's got you from the very first page. Werewolf stories have been around forever, but this is so unique and fun, makes you look forward to each new page.

Absolutely enjoyed this book. An original view of an old idea; well written. Very unique. It is very sad that this young man left this planet so very soon. I would like to see where his books could have gone. Highly recommend!

Pekearo blends tragedy with horror and weaves a terrific story; personal narration style that brings you in tight to the character's heart and soul. It is indeed sad that such a good writer was taken from us at such a young age. He died a hero, and that fact makes the last page of this book even harder to turn.

From beginning to end, The Wolfman uses vivid descriptions that captivate. Author Pekearo, displays pure genius concerning the unfortunate curse the main character endures. Along with interesting characters and engaging dialogue, the plot never gets boring. A murder mystery, intertwined with a love story and gruesome scenes make this book a must read.
