From Publishers Weekly
Originally published in 1989, this powerful novel fuses WWII espionage thriller and dark fantasy. Richly detailed, intricately plotted, fast-paced historical suspense is enhanced by McCammon's unique take on the werewolf myth. Russian-born British Secret Service operative and lycanthrope Michael Gallatin is a highly principled, deeply introspective, and internally tormented soul struggling to find himself amid the horror and chaos of 1944 Europe: "Not human. Not animal... .What am I, in the eye of God?" The limited edition hardcover reissue includes color illustrations from renowned artist Vincent Chong as well as a never-before-published companion novella, "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs," which will raise interest in a planned collection of stories featuring Gallatin. McCammon's fans will cherish this lovingly produced reissue of a werewolf classic that deserves to be unearthed and rediscovered. (Nov.) (c)

Regarding McCammon's writing style, I don't know what you'd call it, but I say this about it: it's straightforward, simple, uncomplicated yet thorough and detailed enough to describe the scenes of where things are happening so that you see it and the feelings of the people involved in what's happening to feel it! He does not waste words nor adds them needlessly. His writing draws you into the story so that you become a part of it. The writing does not get in the way of the story, it's as if the writing is nothing more than a door that opens into a world, a story that you see and feel what's going on - you almost forget the words and live the story. Maybe that's the key to any great author/story-teller - for you just to experience it. McCammon does just that!
