Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

October 2011 Book of the Month.

This was one of our stand-out reads of the month. Yes, it’s about Werewolves and Vampires but the brilliant brutality and beauty of the story telling combined with the suspense, human emotion and page turning plot make it irresistible. Unsurprisngly the film rights have already been sold to Blade Runner director Ridley Scott – but please don’t wait for the film.

Synopsis

The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan

A veil of melancholy has fallen over Jacob Marlowe. He's the last of his kind. Hunted by his enemies and haunted by his past, he is worn out by centuries of decadence and debauchery, and by the demands of his lunatic appetites. He decides to submit to the authorities at the next full moon. However, as Jacob counts down to suicide, a violent murder and an extraordinary meeting plunge him straight back into the desperate pursuit of life. The Last Werewolf  is a wickedly original hybrid of noir and horror, a thrilling take on our relationship with the wild side, and an exploration of the transformative possibilities of love.

 


Reviews

'A magnificent novel. A brutal, indignant, lunatic howl. A sexy, blood-spattered page-turner, beautifully crafted and full of genuine suspense, that tears the thorax out of the horror genre to create something that stands rapturous and majestic and entirely on its own.' - Nick Cave
