Originally published in 1989, this powerful novel fuses WWII espionage thriller and dark fantasy. Richly detailed, intricately plotted, fast-paced historical suspense is enhanced by McCammon's unique take on the werewolf myth. Russian-born British Secret Service operative and lycanthrope Michael Gallatin is a highly principled, deeply introspective, and internally tormented soul struggling to find himself amid the horror and chaos of 1944 Europe: "Not human. Not animal... .What am I, in the eye of God?" The limited edition hardcover reissue includes color illustrations from renowned artist Vincent Chong as well as a never-before-published companion novella, "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs," which will raise interest in a planned collection of stories featuring Gallatin. McCammon's fans will cherish this lovingly produced reissue of a werewolf classic that deserves to be unearthed and rediscovered. (Nov.)
