Format: Paperback
How does one classify a novel in which a werewolf detective living in Boston begins working on a new case with his 13th partner? Mystery, horror, and touch of humor all intertwine to make a unique story.

In Surviving Frank, David A. Page has created a fantasy world in the reality of Boston city life. Frank, known to his friends as Hairy, has been down on his luck. His wife is dead, he's become a werewolf, and he's lost 12 partners. Now he's faced with a new challenge: a rookie goody-two-shoes partner named Ryan. The case? The murder of a scientist at the Boston Public Library. Yes, the library scene sucked me right into the story.

Two characters really stood out for me. Ryan, Frank's rookie partner, always has good intentions. Yet as he spends more time with Frank, his personality becomes more developed; as if Frank is pulling him out of his shell. Violet also caught my attention. She's a journalist who helps them on the case. Why did she capture my attention? The name alone would have done it. But she's also a smart, spunky person who can take care of herself and usually gets what she's after.

I really liked how the author creates a world that is ours, but just enough askew to keep you on your toes for what might be next. Werewolf cop? Given. Mysterious mafiosi? Done. Surviving Frank puts the 'werewolf' in the 'lone-wolf' cop story. Join Frank and his new partner for a fun ride through a Boston that you may recognize, but will also be surprised by. Great characters and lots of fun await with inside jokes as well as twists and turns that will keep you going till the end.

I love the concept of this book, a werewolf detective and all the problems that creates. Frank is a very interesting character as is the narrator caught between liking Frank and doing his job which is to watch for him to get int trouble. That whole set up is wonderful and so is all the little wolfish bits and Franks struggle with them, but the plot didn't really have much punch to it. I felt kind of "Yeah, and..." Which was a big disappointment because I really liked the characters.

Fairly well written - just a little to strange for my taste.
