Marlowe Higgins is a hard man; a wanderer. Since being dishonourably discharge after a tour in Vietnam, he's been in and out of prison, moving from town to town, going wherever the wind takes him. He's not really the kind of guy who can stay in one place too long. Every full moon he kills someone. Marlowe Higgins is a werewolf. For years he struggled with his affliction, until he found a way to use his unfortunate curse for good - he only kills really bad people. After years of being on the road, Higgins has found a home in the small town of Evelyn, Tennessee. He works at a local kitchen; he even has a friend, Daniel Pearce, one of Evelyn's two detectives. But one night everything changes. It turns out he's not the only monster lurking in the area. A fiendish serial killer, known as the Rose Killer, is brutally murdering young girls all around the county. Higgins targets the killer as his next victim. But on the night of the full moon, things go drastically wrong.

Review quote

"Spare, evocative prose lifts this impressive debut... Huggins may remind some of Jeff Lindsay's Dexter, but Pekearo's skill at making Higgins both believable and sympathetic is a considerable achievement that should give this novel crossover appeal beyond crime and horror readers." - Publishers Weekly, starred review."
