Some people are afraid there’s a wild animal on the loose, savagely tearing its victims apart. Others, like Nick Lupo, know better. Lupo knows a werewolf attack when he sees one. He should, since he’s a werewolf himself, though he’s been able to control his urges and maintain his secret. He’s also a homicide cop, so it may be up to him to hunt down one of his own kind. It looks like there’s a new werewolf in town, a rogue out only for blood. But looks can be deceiving.
"Wolf's Gambit is that rare accomplishment in horror of a sequel that not only surpasses the power of the original but turns your expectations against you at every turn. W.D. Gagliani has taken the central conceit of Wolf's Trap and used it as a springboard for his most unpredictable, accomplished, and rewarding novel to date. His writing has never been crisper, his suspense never more nerve-wracking, and his dry humor so consistently refreshing. If you think you know what you'll be getting, trust me, you're wrong. Gagliani is fashioning an epic werewolf cycle here, one filled with terror, passion, violence, surprisingly affecting sensuality, and enough fantastical twists and turns to satisfy even the most jaded horror reader. Put your preconceptions aside and get ready for one hell of a ride."
5-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Gary A. Braunbeck, author of Coffin County and Far Dark Field
"A great big bloody beast of a book that enthralls the reader on multiple levels. Vicious, gory, sexy, fascinating--part-supernatural thriller, part-police procedural, pure dynamite!"
Edward Lee, author of Brides of the Impaler and The Golem
"If you're looking for the same-ol'-same-ol' werewolf story, W.D. Gagliani's Wolf's Gambit is definitely not for you. Gagliani takes a rehashed theme and breathes new life into it with a cast of memorable characters and relentless suspense. He masterfully weaves sensuality and horror throughout the story, taking the reader on a journey that redefines 'love at all costs.' Wolf's Gambit is one book you won't put down, and it's a story you'll never forget."
Deborah LeBlanc, bestselling author of Water Witch
"Wolf's Gambit is the equivalent of a North Woods rollercoaster -- with each brutal twist the body count rises, but you never want the ride to end! This one goes for the throat over and over again, and as you slip through the slayings with Detective Lupo in a desperate race against time, the pages seem to turn themselves! I couldn't put it down!."
John Everson, author of Covenant and Sacrifice
