Booklist Reviews 2015 February #1

Zach Adams, a Houston cop assigned to a federal task force in New York, is on the hunt for Dominic Abend, leader of an international criminal organization that threatens to destabilize the world's economy. As the bodies pile up, the plot takes a supernatural turn; Adams believes Abend to be looking for an ancient dagger associated with werewolves in Germany, a dagger that holds unimaginable power for the wielder. While traveling in search of more information about the dagger, Adams survives a brutal attack by a savage beast, and when he awakens he knows he has been transformed—but into what? Klavan (A Killer in the Wind, 2013) has a knack for creating relentless, fast-paced narratives, and this thriller-horror hybrid is no exception. Unfortunately, the story drags at times, thanks to an overabundance of plot: Adams' inner demons, his misogynistic partner's possible corruption, a crazy affair, werewolves, Nazis, world collapse, etc. Horror fans may get bogged down, but those who want a little bite to their detective stories may enjoy the ride.

PW Reviews 2015 January #4

In this oddly effective supernatural thriller from Klavan (The Identity Man), Det. Zachary Adams, a top investigator on a federal task force, must track down criminal mastermind Dominic Abend, the leader of an international crime syndicate that has achieved total subversion of the European political establishment. Zach discovers that Abend is seeking the location of an ancient dagger with alleged demonic powers. He follows a lead to meet an expert on the dagger, and there the story takes a wild turn as a werewolf attacks Zach and transmits to him its curse. Zach's own disbelief and bewilderment give way to his determination to use his new state to catch Abend and end the threat of the magical dagger. From this point on, the narrative proceeds with a dreamlike logic to a satisfying and action-filled conclusion, fitting both Zach's police background and his fantastic transformation into a creature of vengeance. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group. (Mar.)
