At times, it feels like it’s Zero against the world. Levin takes us on a journey where we feel Zero’s physical and emotion struggle. We watch him literally and figuratively trying to keep himself together.
It dawned on me while I was reading this book that any onlooker might have seen my mouth dropped for much of it. I’m a big fan of Mr. Levin’s work, having read all his published novels, and this one is my favorite. He has a remarkable way of balancing a dark subject, with multi-dimensional characters that never seem to lose their sense of humor. This is a fast-paced book and, as with all his novels, it will keep you guessing to the end. Big thumbs up from this reader!
And yes, the story does move that fast. I have rarely met with a novel that was able to keep up this kind of intense level of momentum, without resorting to cheap tricks and cliffhangers. But Levin uses none of those. Every intriguing surprise he promises fully delivers. Every twist and turn of the story leads to something unexpected and perfectly aligned with the mounting tension and suspense. On top of that, I just plain liked the protagonist—a struggling oxy-addicted badass dude named Zero who works as a special ops-type guy traveling around the world saving child victims of sex trafficking. I just plain liked the story too. It sounds weird to say that a novel that revolves around the sex trafficking of children and serious addiction issues can be hilarious and delightful, but in this book’s case, there’s kind of no other way to describe it. In Wolves’ Clothing IS hilarious and delightful, even though it’s also heart-wrenching at times. Levin does a spectacular job of using humor in all the right places to give the reader the breathing room needed to tackle a subject like this.
Honestly, reading this book was like watching a master guitar player take the stage and just SHRED. Every little bit of writing craft that went into this was clean, tight, and (as my writer’s brain had to point out) seemingly impossible to pull off. But Levin pulls it off and he pulls it off brilliantly. I highly recommend In Wolves’ Clothing to those who love transgressive fiction, dark crime fiction (especially Chuck Palahniuk fans), suspense/thriller and well-written edgy literary fiction.

I have removed a star because I thought the ending, though desirable, was a somewhat coincidental 'deus ex machina' contrivance which needed more foreshadowing to be credible.
Now whilst that subject-matter in the wrong hands could be awful, the author pitches it perfectly, never shying away from the horrors of what the girls go through, but neither revelling in it or using it as a plot point. Instead, we get in Zero's head as he goes rogue to rescue a little girl, whilst also struggling with his own demons (prescription drug addiction, a dead brother, something from years ago that he's only just recalling, the breakdown of his marriage - again, real cheery stuff - but all handled with grace and real black humour that always feels real and keeps you reading).
If you're a fan of the dark-comic thrills of Chuck P and the sassy crime fiction of Elmore Leonard, you'll enjoy this book.
Neda isn’t overly thrilled about her husband Zero’s early morning drinking, so she would certainly not be amused if she knew the amount of illegal pain medication he consumed on a daily basis. Mainly because Zero wasn’t getting his pills and prescriptions from a doctor, as he was more of the self-prescribed kind of guy. However, he did have a pretty stressful and dangerous job. Zero travelled around the world saving child sex slaves, with a group of other guys that pretended to be high paying pedophiles. It wasn’t easy for him to sometimes block out the violence and horrors he witnessed on a daily basis. He could normally hand the children over to police and forget about them. However when a five year old at one such jump doesn’t want to let him go, something seems to change inside of him, and he just can’t seem to get her out of his mind. Especially since he’s concerned for her safety. This is the sort of book that you will want to read in one sitting if you have the time. It really is that good.
