Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A series of gory murders terrorizes New York City in this rollicking horror tale from Lamberson (Johnny Gruesome). A werewolf murderer uses blood to write taunting references to shape-shifters at each gore-splattered Greenwich Village crime scene. The victims include an elderly professor with a research interest in transformation, several attractive young clubgoers, and a cop. Police captain Anthony Mace hunts the killer, as do three supernatural investigators: tribal policeman John Stalk, occult bookstore owner Angela Domini, and Catholic secret agent Pedro Fillipe, all of whom know far more about magic than Mace does and aren't fettered by his increasingly skeptical superiors. Despite the overly familiar secret-society setup and some thinly drawn characters, Lamberson's knack for furiously fast-paced action and the building terror of the graphic and increasingly sexualized murders combine in a surprisingly compelling read for horror fans with strong stomachs.

From Booklist

Becoming a minor celebrity for nabbing a notorious serial killer, NYPD detective Anthony Mace is promoted to captain just as a particularly heinous new crime drops in his lap. The victims—beginning with an eccentric NYU professor whose books avow the existence of werewolves—are dispatched by bloody evisceration and marked by teeth and claw marks that are interpreted only as canine. When some of the professor's students and Mace's lead detective on the case meet similar fates, the tabloids have a field day, trumpeting news of the “Wolf Man” killer and sending the city into a panic. Then Mace witnesses the beastly killer firsthand and realizes no ordinary police work will be enough to stop it. Rather belying his novel's lurid cover, Lamberson provides rich characterization and a multilayered plot along with the obligatory gore. Together with a few speculative flourishes about werewolves' shapeshifting origins, Lamberson's clever plot twists make this a nice little werewolf yarn—relief, as it were, from the current glut of vampire fiction. --Carl Hays

Shout out to Medallion Press for continuing to publish Greg Lamberson. Johnny Gruesome was so good that many thought the author might have peaked. They were flat wrong. The Frenzy Way brings fresh life to werewolf tales, introducing a Next of Kin style (or Next of Skin) group of skinwalkers who are decimating everyone in their path.

This is at once a werewolf novel and a crime novel. Lots of action. Great characterization. I love everything about it. If anything, I'd like to see a better cover. But that doesn't mean it will lose a star. That's the packaging. I'm talking about the writing.

I can't wait to see what Mr. Lamberson writes next.

Gregory Lamberson's The Frenzy Way will without question appeal to genre fans or pulp fans. The brisk pace of the story is never tethered and catapults forward with fervor. The action sequences are well paced and satisfying. Anyone searching for a novel approach to werewolf mythology would be hard pressed to find a better title. The Frenzy Way is also a rare novel where the cover art is wholly accurate. If the cover art appeals to you, you will enjoy this novel.

Gregory Lamberson is a favorite new author of mine. I loved Johnny Gruesome and I love this book! I was fortunate to snag the book for free and I'm hooked. Just bought book 2 and anxious to read it! Mr. Lamberson reels you in and doesn't let up throughout the story. If you like werewolves and crime stories, you will love this book.

Cheesy review title, I know. But seriously, if you feel like a New York populated by lycanthropes, then take the Hudson River line to the book/kindle store and grab/download a copy of this chilling, exhilarating romp. The author, Lamberson, does not disappoint. The book takes a cool concept - police procedural with a werewolf serial killer - and delivers it with panache: great characterization, werewolf mythology/history, secret Catholic and werewolf cults, and heart-pounding, horrific scenes that urge you to turn the page.

This was a well balanced book pitting Werewolves against New Yorks finest and yet it never felt silly or contrived.

Great characters and a story that made sense combined to make this a real page turner.

Definitely looking forward to more of the same.

When a bitter, rogue werewolf starts wreaking havoc in Greenwich Village, it's up to Detective Anthony Mace to figure out how to stop him, if he can only believe the creature actually exists.

Lamberson, who set his last book, the excellent, award winning high school zombie comedy "Johnny Gruesome" in and around a fictionalized version of his small home town, this time sets his sights on the greater New York metropolis, and as the police hunt intensifies, the murders get bloodier, and the media whips up a frenzy over the "Manhattan Werewolf", the paranoia and craziness of New York under a full moon is ripe for embellishment. And the tension is palpable, especially when Lamberson starts weaving in the murderer's complicated background, and we being to realize the sad, frightening onus for the creature's revenge.

With a keen respect for werewolf lore, from Lon Chaney up to today's popular romantic vampire/werewolf mash-ups, and also a studied sense of ethnography (the werewolves, who hide from man out of necessity, are likened to Native Americans and their plight at the hand of the colonialists), Lamberson sprinkles comedy, gore, and sex throughout his opus without disrespecting the seriousness of horror iconography; the werewolf is one wicked piece of work, and the broken silver blade that can possibly stop him is the book's coolest bit of medieval antiquing.
