Review: “Wolf’s Moon” by Patrick Jones

Posted on

Part techno-thriller, part horror, and all entertaining, that’s the only way to describe Patrick Jones’ novel Wolf’s Moon. Mark Lansdowne, aka Mike Linden, lives with his three dogs in the small Ozark town of Maple Hills that’s not supposed to have wild wolves. But, when people start dying, with clear evidence that they’ve been attacked and eaten by some large carnivore, Mark finds himself thrown into the middle of a mystery that could lead to his death. But, Mark is not your normal victim; in fact, he’s not a victim at all. With all the cunning and viciousness of the creatures who are preying on the citizens of his town, he takes the attacks personally, when a woman he happens to think highly of is killed.

With the help of his friend Warren Skruggs, Mark sets out to eliminate the threat. Using the skills he’s obtained from a past that he keeps hidden from his neighbors, he turns the hunters – packs of Dire Wolves that are thought to be extinct – into the hunted. Jones has crafted a tale that will keep you on the edge of your chair, and make you nervous about going out at night. I can promise you, after reading this story, you’ll get chills up and down your spine the next time you hear a howl in the middle of the night.

Wolf’s Moon is a tightly crafted suspense thriller with all the right elements, handled in just the right manner.
