A corpse gets up and walks out of the hospital morgue. Minutes later, a policeman is killed outside the same hospital...and partially eaten. Something deadly has come to the coastal California town of Big Rock—something that’s leaving mangled and devoured bodies in its wake.
Sheriff Arlin Hurley refused to believe the wild talk of werewolves. Then a tuft of wolf’s fur was found on one of the victims. But there’s more than one werewolf on the prowl. It’s quickly becoming an epidemic, the curse passed on not through blood but through sex. As the sheriff and his men set out to stop the spreading terror, they’ll learn that many of the old werewolf legends are just myths. The reality is far worse.

Ray Garton, a HUGE name in horror in the 1980s, has returned, to the delight of fans both old and new. His recent novels were published by Pinnacle, Avon, Pocket Books, and Bantam. Ravenous was originally published by Dorchester in mass market in 2008. It was his fourth novel with Dorchester.From Publishers Weekly:
A serial rapist is on the loose in the sleepy California town of Big Rock, and sheriff Farrell Hurley's secretary is the latest victim. When a self-proclaimed werewolf hunter named Daniel Fargo comes into town claiming that Big Rock has an infestation of the creatures, Hurley thinks the man is insane, until the eviscerated corpses and attacks by large animals start in earnest. For Garton, lycanthropy is an STD, spread mostly through rape, that runs rampant through a small town fraught with affairs and intrigues. His werewolf is a terrifying creature: not a remorseful, helpless cursed human but a homicidal beast driven by a dual urge to breed and feed. Hurley is a sheriff to root for, and Garton's well-paced horror novel reworks the werewolf myth to great effect. (Apr.)
