What do you get when you cross the mystery of Criminal Minds with the politics of 24, and then cross that with the terror of Nightmare on Elm Street? Well, you get a story that's a bit uneven, and one which has trouble walking the fine line that is willing suspension of disbelief, but you also get one heck of an interesting read.

Vengeance Of The Wolf is the story of a political assassin who works through his target`s dreams. The story actually starts out with a bang-bang-bang immersion into those dreams, setting up a fantastic mystery of "how" when we discover that the deaths we witnessed don`t correspond to the physical evidence of the bodies. The very concept of being able to break every bone in the human body . . . from the inside . . . through a dream is creepy enough to compel any reader forward.

Enter Detective John Yardley and Agent Frank Williams, the two men charged with stopping the reign of terror before it reaches its ultimate target - the President of the United States. I hate to give away a plot twist, but since this one comes rather early, and since the book ultimately turns upon it, I have to saw I was shocked when they failed in their efforts. I couldn't see how anybody could stop the dreams so quickly, much less how the authorities could figure out the pattern with so little to go on, and was fully prepared for some cheesy bit of deus-ex-machina, followed by a mundane hunt-the-killer story.

Yes, I was shocked to see them fail, but also immensely satisfied to discover the book wasn't heading in the direction I feared.

Dorian is an interesting character, an almost likeable killer with whom you can`t help but sympathise. It takes a while before his motivation is fully revealed, but it worked for me, and really sold me on his cause.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Imaginative Serial Killer June 5, 2012
Format:Paperback
* I was given a free copy of this book for review purposes. The review is based solely on my opinion and was not influenced by author or publisher.

Politicians of the world are falling victim to an 'imaginative' serial killer. Detective John Yardley and FBI agent Frank Williams are on the case, then they are off the case and finally they are put back on the case. They get kicked off the case (and in the case of FBI agent Williams, fired) because they fail to apprehend Dorian before he kills the President. They get re-assigned to the case because the rest of the world seems unable to get their hands on Dorian as well. Dorian has a special skill set that enables him to exact his vengeance and elude the authorities. It will take some unique individuals to bring Dorian down, do such people exist?

I loved the idea behind the story, it was smart and imaginative. The reason that Dorian was looking for vengeance was unique and inspired and something I could get behind. Minus the horrific murders of course. The characters were interesting but I would have liked to see more development of Yardley and Williams. There was a lot going on in this story and at times it got a little confusing bouncing between all the locations and trying to sort through all the information.

Overall this was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to readers who enjoy thrillers, police stories, horror and a little bit of fantasy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique Paranormal Mystery November 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Vengeance of the Wolf
By Solitaire Parke

Politicians are being murdered one by one in mysterious ways that cannot be natural, for instance the man whose heart has stopped that could have been explained as a heart attack except for the fact every bone in his body has been broken. Detective John Yardley, an FBI agent, and Frank Williams are determined to put a stop to these murders at any cost, but when the killer enters into a man's dreams how will they ever find out who is responsible?

This is truly an original paranormal mystery, I had thought it would be scarier than it actually was but it leaned more towards the mystery side rather than the horror genre. All in all Solitaire Parke does a wonderful job bringing her scenes to life, drawing you into the nightmares of men and a bringing each instance to the forefront so vividly you will cringe. I just wish there had been more action, sometimes it can read rather slow but for the most part it is truly fascinating. With such a story line the novel is absolutely riveting; my favorite scene is when several vehicles run a woman over go around the block to do it again with the drivers having no control over themselves. I would give this one a try it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it is so unique it is worth the read.
I was sent a free copy of this book for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super-Paranormal/Mystery/Thriller August 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"Vengeance of the Wolf" is a terrifically lyrical book, with vivid imagery which makes the reader feel both part of the scene, and in tune with the characters. The Paranormal elements and the intrinsic mystery are capably interwoven, keeping the reader riveted, anxious to find out what's next. A seemingly implacable force of doom is destroying politicians in office, yet doing so in a method that seems physically and medically impossible. Yet, like a juggernaut, the killer continues, hopscotching from one U.S. locale to another, seemingly without rhyme or reason, at least none apparent to the local law enforcement communities, nor to the F.B.I. agent in charge of this multi-state case.

I especially liked the escalation of the Paranormal elements, beginning with what might be possible and moving on to become both deeper and more extensive. Of course, any mystery that so baffles law enforcement (think Jack the Ripper) is going to be conducive to reader enjoyment, because we know that eventually we'll find out the facts, whether the police agencies do so or not.

This is a novel that will engross readers of many different genres, and I highly recommend it and anticipate more from author Solitaire Parke.

This review is based on a copy of the book acquired at Smashwords.com via the author and the Goodreads group Shut Up & Read, for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
