I liked Kyle but he was not nice or particularly fun. Kyle was so of mean spirited and worse he was a DAWG long before he became a werewolf. The caharacters were for the most part well fleshed out but none of them were interesting. Kyle was not written in a way that made you really LIKE him and root for him to overcome his challenges. With the possible exception of Micheal all the male characters in Frenzy were curmudgeonly one demensional folks. Even police officers have different qualities they are NOT monolythic.
There are a lot of characters in the book but not much in variety of personality types. Reading Frenzy was a strange experience for me because; the author did a better job capturing the mood of the locales than making the characters compelling unique individuals. There was too much sameness in his characters. Everybody smoked so much I felt it was like watching an old black and white police drama from the 1950's. The mystery was first rate because; unravelled slowly.
I did not hate Franzy but I just did not like it as much as I wished I could have. Franzy uses the same props, locations and story twists we have all seen thousands \ millions of times, I don't mind that Franzy uses the same old props and angles BUT, good werewolf themed books put a fresh spin on at least one area of the story line. Frenzy did not have even one cleaver inventive what if to bring a fresh perspective to the werewolf story. Frenzy is a werewolf tale told with strictly off the shelf parts which is not a bad thing it is just not a great thing. For what it is Frenzy is a satisfying werewolf themed read it just does not rise to greatness.
Now all that said, I think the author of Frenzy must definitely continue writing books because; this is a nice werewolf book. Just give us a person that is more than just 2 demensional. Kyle had no funny side at all. Kyle was just a libidonous two timing jerk. Any man who can string two ladies along at the same time has a sense of humor even if it too is sick as he is.
The construction of “Frenzy” is well-thought-out and applied. The author sets a rapid pace of events that build to a head only to introduce some darker theme that was not heretofore anticipated. Although Stephenson spends a great deal of time rounding out Detective Poole’s character—and that of his main rival, Tony—his other, lesser characters are pieced together with just enough believability to ensure they are credible. Jessie—Poole’s longtime girlfriend and main love interest—is given some adequate definition, however, she and the detective’s mistress—the typical stripper with the heart of gold—are both highly representative of classic archival female stereotypes that are respectively propagated over and over again in the all-too-common Good Girl VS. Bad Girl model.
Girlfriends aside, it’s the two main protagonists, the abrasive Detective Poole and this mad and vengeful antagonist from his past, Tony, who drive this twisted tale of hate and revenge reeling off the rails and plunging into a terrible world of carnage, insanity, lust, and rage. The blood and guts run ankle deep as Poole determinedly hunts Tony down until the villain exacts a heavy toll on the detective taking him to the brink of madness as a reward for his dogged pursuit. The author holds no bars in describing the carnage and ferocity of a murderous beast set loose on the city. He takes us into a supernatural world where the need to feed is paramount, and forces the detective—along with the reader—to realize that perhaps he might be better off dead than suffer the continuous tortures he must endure at the hands of this formidable enemy—the insane and irrational Tony. Nothing can keep a good—and I use the term loosely—cop down, however, and the detective must push past his human limits in order to save the lives of his lovers, his coworkers, and his friends. Stephenson describes the ensuing confrontation between Poole and Tony down to the very last morsel, and the scene is so horrifying that it’s hard to look away. Ultimately, there is no apparent hero in this novel, just two men—Poole and Tony—who sink deeper into the belly of the beast in order to destroy one another other using any means, not to mention anyone, possible.
This tale of carnage is not for the faint of heart, and I must give a forewarning to victims of abuse and/or violence who have a tendency to experience flashbacks or PTSD when confronted by graphic content that it might be best to steer clear of this novel. For those of you with an iron constitution, however—fans of zombies, monsters, and other such unsavory creatures of the night—I’m certain you will appreciate the highly-descriptive, gory images of extreme violence that occur with the same frequency as do the innocuous commas placed throughout the text. Dedicated hard-core horror fans, I’m sure would agree that Pike Stephenson’s “Frenzy” is the ultimate spine-chiller … and a damn good read.
