Andrew Klavan in his new book, “werewolf cop book coverWerewolf Cop” Book One of a trilogy published by Pegasus Books LLC introduces us to Zach Adams.

From the back cover:  From Edgar Award-winning Andrew Klavan, a supernatural thriller about a good cop in the grips of an evil curse: the first in a trilogy about a crime-fighter on a quest to control the beast within

Zach Adams is one of the best detectives in the country. Nicknamed Cowboy, he’s a soft-spoken homicide detective from Houston known for his integrity and courage under fire. He serves on a federal task force that has a single mission: to hunt down Dominic Abend, a European gangster who has taken over the American underworld.

After a brutal murder gives them a lead, Zach and his tough guy NYPD partner Martin Goulart feel like they’re finally on Abend’s trail. But things get complicated—and very, very weird. Goulart’s on-the-job enemies are accusing him of corruption. And Zach is beginning to suspect that Abend’s evil goes beyond crime—perhaps to the edge of the supernatural. As his investigation continues in Germany, Zach finds himself lured into the impossible. In a centuries-old forest under a full moon, a beast assaults him, cursing him forever. In the aftermath, Zach is transformed into something horrible—something deadly.

Now, the good cop has innocent blood on his hands. He has killed—and he will kill again—in the form of a beast who can’t be controlled or stopped. Before he can free himself, he’s going to have to solve the greatest mystery of all: How can you defeat evil when the evil is inside you?

I think that this is one of the most clever uses of being a werewolf that I have ever read. It reminds me a lot of the Lon Chaney, Jr. “The Wolfman” where he is an innocent who helped and got bit. Zach is a good cop just trying to do a good job and he is assaulted by the bad guy who happens to be a werewolf. And the book catapults from there.  “Werewolf Cop” grabs you with the storyline and keeps you flipping pages as fast as possible.  This is a book with very interesting themes regarding evil and the evil inside us.  Mr. Klavan has given us a very interesting character in Zack and he makes us care for him all throughout the book. Don’t start this book late at night because you are going to want to finish it before you go to bed. A high-octane suspenseful thriller.
