Description

Alan’s destiny to be an “All American boy” is cruelly destroyed when his heavily pregnant mother commits suicide, massively overdosing and almost killing the twins she is carrying in the process. His father, wracked with guilt, takes refuge in alcohol, abandoning his sons to the care of their maid. Alan, in the absence of a parental influence, takes control of the family, working part time at a Wolf Haven and studying at the same time. On one of his drunken, infrequent visits, his father who has become increasingly bitter and hostile, especially in relation to the twins whose mental difficulties serve as a permanent reminder of the blame that torments him, disfigures the twins in the presence of Alan who, possessed by rage, doesn’t doubt in killing him. At that moment Alan took the step into oblivion. He had killed and he felt good about it, he felt powerful, he felt justified but he felt no remorse.Deciding that he and the twins need a new start, he moves to a remote farm in Scotland where he introduces wolves, over which he exercises an unerring control, into the wild, experimenting with methods of artificially inseminating them. The farm turns out to not be sufficiently remote and Alan kills again in order to protect both his twins and his wolves. The outpouring of public grief over the disappearance of the couple that he killed highlights for him the total exclusion that his brothers suffer from society and decides to teach them a lesson. Once move uprooting his “family” of brothers and wolves, he establishes himself in British society and starts a campaign of kidnapping and murder the likes of which has never before been witnessed.
