"Becoming the Wolf by R.H. Neil is one of those vigilante justice thrillers that makes you want to strap on your Glock and go and hunt down the bad guys! Intense, emotional and passionate, there's much to like about Becoming the Wolf. Neil has a good grasp of the story line and manages to keep it on track, all the while making it a compelling read. The violence is necessary to the story line, but it's not so over the top that it alienates its readers. The use of Cincinnati's long-forgotten underground was also a nice touch, as were the historical references to the speakeasies from the days of Prohibition. A reader cannot help but root for JD as he systematically takes out his enemies. Neil's imagination and determination make his story stand head and shoulders above others in the vigilante thriller genre."
SPR Reviews, ★★★★
"A gripping new detective series. Certain thrillers have the ring of truth to them, which is often the case with authors who have had storied lives of their own. Neil has created an excellent hero in JD Ward, giving him the skills, backstory and motivation to carry this series far into the future. The author also takes obvious pleasure in his prose, imbuing even the simplest descriptions with twists of language and clever details that are unique and memorable. This is the complete package for any reader who enjoys clean, well-edited writing, gritty suspense, a rebellious protagonist, and some good old-fashioned justice."
