More About the Author

A long time ago, Tim heeded some bad advice. "You'll never make a living as a writer." So it remained a hobby for a long time. A secret one too. Who wants to admit publicly that one is a writer? Eventually he fumbled his way through. First with comic books back in the heyday of DIY alternative comics before turning to screenwriting where he actually had three movies produced from his work. But film is a tough collaborative gig where too many cooks in the kitchen produces mediocre results. Then along came the new world of ebooks and self-publishing, of rolling up one's sleeves and doing it yourself. The rest is history waiting to be written.

Tim lives in Toronto with his wife and two children.

I'd give it 4 stars for the plot/characters and overall read. I read it, found it entertaining, thought it was one of the more interesting 'takes' on a werewolf plot.

I'd give it one star for the cliffhanger ending, which I HATE and refuse to read if I know about it in advance.

So, if you like cop stories and werewolves and can deal with cliffhanger endings, it's as good as anything I've read along these lines.

Since the program doesn't allow a 'not rated' I ended up with a 3 star rating overall but if you dislike cliffhanger endings, find another book.

It was a little slow at first but picked up quickly. The story held my attention and I wanted to know what happened next. The main reason for only 3 stars is the ending. I was reading with anticipation at how it was going to end but then it just stops. I was on the last page and didn't know it. It was a real let down. I want to know what happened to one of the main characters. I'm assuming, by the ending, that it must be the first in a series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

I have to say the book gave me a bad taste early, when Owen slid the gun's bolt forward to expose the loading gate. Forward? On an Enfield? But I did get into the story after a while and overall it's a good read. Just a few things like above, and like a lot of ebooks it needs a proofreader before issue. This isn't as bad as many, but it drives me crazy when a wrong word similar to the correct word is used. Like at the beginning of Chapter 15, where Gallagher says "He got himself in hawk to some bad people...". Pretty sure it should be hock, not hawk. Just one example.

Like some other reviewers, If I had known it was going to have a cliffhanger ending, where it looks like there will be another book in a maybe unending series, I wouldn't have read it, but if that doesn't bother you it's generally entertaining.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.

I was a little reticent to read this book, it didn't pull me right in at first. I did enjoy the story line, although the main detective character kind of bored me and that was hard to get past. Once I did get past that I was engaged in the story. I was a little shocked with the ending and how abrupt it was. I wasn't aware it was the end of the book, until it was literally the end of the book.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes urban fantasy/crime dramas.

Happy Reading =}

I have not read much werewolf fiction. In fact, I have purposely stayed away just because since the onslaught of vampire novels in the past decade, I've been a little afraid of what the supernatural creature that terrified me as a child would be turned into. Thankfully, with Bad Wolf, my childhood nightmares remain safely intact. This wolf remains a creepy and terrifying as ever - and absolutely no glitter in sight. McGregor successfully combines two genres - supernatural and detective - without taking away from either one. Throughout the novel I was completely sold on Detective Mendes and Detective Gallagher's relationship; and when the loon whom they were tracking turned out to be exactly what he said he was, I completely bought it. The story was a fun, engaging read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I sincerely hope McGregor is planning on writing a sequel.

This appears to be a nascent version of an "airplane book". I've spent many (many) hours in transit, and often read to pass the time. Don't find the travel ambiance conducive to immersion in literature. So, generally go for pop science, vignette-type history, or a decent genre series, mostly mysteries and sci-fi/fantasy. Stories that entertain but can be interrupted. Examples would include Ed McBain, Reginald Hill, Jim Butcher, and Katherine Rusch. Haven't paid much attention to the current plague of trite gothic/occult/horror fantasy.

Suspect that this book is actually a transcribed script outline being used as a quick-and-dirty seed for a series. The text contains numerous homonym substitutions and obvious grammar-checker-induced changes -- plainly, it wasn't read by a real editor. Characters built from a standard library, a plot that moves through set scenes, and the much-mentioned "hanger" ending. Wouldn't go as high as a cliff. Maybe a bluff...

Don't have anything against an author keeping a series going to pay the bills, and some of them evolve into real gems, but passing off a thinly-edited sketch as a finished work is inexcusable.

I really like a good detective story. . . even if it deals with the supernatural. Bad Wolf has good characters, and interesting story line; however, people who purport to be writers but can't even get the basics of spelling really annoy me. This writer seems to think that "through" is spelled "threw", "choking" spelled "chocking" and "coarse" as "course". I got to 26% of the book and gave up. Who knows what other spelling and grammar gaffs this book contains.
Perhaps, at the moment, I have to deal with free books, but that doesn't mean that I have to deal with books that are poorly edited.
Perhaps I will go back and read some more once I get past my annoyance. No guarantee. For those who don't care, read the book. I'll save my money and buy a book that comes from a reputable source.
