Suspenseful Murder Mystery Fun to Read
Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2019
My review of “Wolf Pack” came a little more slowly, and with more deliberation than I normally give. This is because I got the Audible edition at the same time I bought the Kindle edition.
STAND-ALONE: It can be read as a stand-alone, but the greatest appreciation will come for devotees of the series.
CLIFFHANGER. No. Although there surely will be more Pickett novels, this does not end with a cliffhanger.
If I were to rate this only based on the Audible narration, I’d be hard-pressed to rate it four stars, as the writing comes across as just a bit too much of an info dump. However, when I read the Kindle version, the info dump is much more invisible, so I am rating it more highly.
WRITING & EDITING: Professional. The flow is good, and the historical bits are interesting. Sometimes the inter-agency tension seems too drawn out, but, as someone who has witnessed just how antagonistic the various factions within the federal and state agencies can be, it had the feeling of authenticity.
BLUSH FACTOR: The number of eff words is more than you’ll want to read with your prayer group, probably, but it is not excessive for most folks. Certainly not for me. I mention it only for those for whom it might annoy.
No graphic sex, but some of the violence might disturb a few readers. I appreciated the realistic portrayal, though.
I enjoyed this murder mystery and consider it a fine Action-Adventure.
