Cry Wolf


Mack Macklin thinks he can’t go any lower. Getting a beatdown from a giant wearing bright yellow yoga pants proves he can.

When his buddy from better days offers him a job, he jumps at the chance. A couple of days out of town and cash to keep his bookie’s enforcer off his back, all in return for a puff piece on an old lady who thinks she saw a werewolf. What could go wrong?

Turns out, a lot.

Mack is a skeptic’s skeptic, trained to look at everything through the critical eye of a veteran reporter, but even he can’t explain the pack of hairy man-beasts that attack him. They leave him near death, which is a damn sight better than local residents seem to be faring.  Can he find the silver bullet of truth, or is it time to Cry Wolf?

The Mack Macklin Mysteries follow a disgraced, and morally degenerate, reporter as he dodges debts, investigates the unbelievable, and rips the masks off the bad guys. Get on the Mack bus today to meet the new face of pulp fiction.

My Review

I liked this book. It is nice start to this series. I did like Mack and do want to get to know him better as well as see him in action again. However, I felt like the story moved at a slow pace. I kept waiting for the story to pick up. Despite the slow pacing I did finish this book in a moderate fast timing. 

The last third of the story was where it really picked up and all came together. If the rest of the book could have had the same energy as this last third of the story, my feelings toward this book would have been higher. In addition, I did not carry a strong connection towards most of the characters in the story except for Mack. It is a good thing Mack is the main lead character. Readers of cozy mysteries or mysteries in general may like this book and want to check it out. In regards, to the next book in the series, I would give it a try.
