9781907773808: Werewolf

'Werewolf' is set in August 1945 in the British Zone of occupied Germany. Silas Payne is a Scotland Yard detective seconded to the Military Government in Germany to run a police training school as part of the denazification policy. When a former Waffen SS soldier is found murdered in the cellar of a requisitioned house, Payne begins an investigation that leads him on a tortuous path of discovery, via interned Gestapo agents, corrupt British officials and secret SS medical experiments, as he seeks to maintain his high moral code in a world where the line between justice and arbitrary vengeance has become fatally blurred.

About the Author:

Matthew Pritchard worked as a journalist in Spain for ten years, mainly for the ex-pat press, but also for UK nationals (at which he has some good connections). He grew up in a house filled with gas masks, military helmets, swords and rifles and has possessed a lifelong interest in WWII ever since. Together with his father and uncle, he has amassed a sizeable collection of memoirs and memorabilia contemporary to the period.

Review:

Scarecrow kept me guessing, made me uncomfortable, had me groaning with frustration at the lead character and sweating as I worked out what was going on and had to keep on reading as the book reached its conclusion. I can't recommend Scarecrow highly enough. -- Gruffsdad's Blog There's been an asesinato. In fact there's been another and another ... all found mutilated and entombed within the walls of Spanish villas around Almeria. As the bodies pile up, the mystery deepens, and with that comes an increasing sense of danger for journalist Danny Sanchez. * Snakebite Horror * A nail-biting murder mystery with a distinct European flavor, steady pacing that leads to an exciting finish, and characters with depth and humor. -- Tammy Sparks * Books, Bones and Buffy * Pritchard's promising debut doesn't take long to put trouble in paradise. Pritchard paces the narrative nicely, and convivial tapas bars, mass unemployment, corrupt bureaucrats, forgotten migrants and petty thugs form an entertaining, vivid backdrop to the lurid crimes and determined clue-gathering. -- James Smart * The Guardian * The twists in here are exceptional - none of this cliche stuff - and you'll be impressed at how such a complex novel can be both easy to read yet challenging on the mind. If you're looking for a great plot, engaging characters, fast pace and a completely different read to the norm, then make sure you get it on your Christmas list - you won't be disappointed. -- Steph Roundsmith * Mean Streets: The Home of Crime Fiction * I have no idea of whether this is the authors debut novel, but I'm guessing it may well be. If so, I stand and applaud him. I will also find his author page and sign up for notifications of when his next book will be released as I don't want to miss it. He is that good folks. -- Russ Thompson * Hellnotes *
