Jack Bailey is just a few weeks
away from beginning his dream career as Forest Ranger in
the upstate New York town of Angel's Bend. Jenny Rudea,
veterinarian in training, is madly in love with Jack,
and the animals she cares for. On the way home from her
house one night, Jack takes an unanticipated detour to
Hosner Lake to bolster his courage and contemplate how
he'll ask Jenny to be his wife. While there, he
encounters something that raises the hair on the back of
his neck. What is out there, on the other side of the
lake? Is it a shadow, a hunter, an animal? Without a
weapon or a flashlight, he is not about to stick around
to find out.
He hops on his bike and heads for the main road where
something leaps onto his back, causing the accident that
steals his mobility, threatens his sanity. As if this
isn't bad enough, when he wakes up in the hospital,
paralyzed from the waist down, he has no idea what
occurred on the lonely road, but is now a prime suspect
in a murder investigation, because of what was found
almost pinned to his body: a naked girl whose throat has
In his comatose state, Jack hears detectives interview
Jenny at his bedside. He eventually regains
consciousness, and is transferred to a rehab where he
hopes to recover the use of his legs. The police are
searching for a serial killer, bodies have been piling
up across the country, as well as in Angel's Bend. While
Jack struggles with his physical injuries, he must also
defend his innocence.
Jack manages to get in and out of the window of his room
mysteriously, at will, even though he's in a wheelchair.
The only one who notices his disappearing acts is his
physical therapist, Rachel Huntress, who is almost as
weird as the predicament Jack has found himself in,
because his extraordinary abilities, and changing
appearance, don't seem to faze her at all.
There are tense scenes which include violence and raw
emotion in this whodunit. Who is the murderous werewolf?
Jack? Or could it be his high school rival, Detective
Don Delgado. It's anyone's guess. Along with bodies,
there are several possible suspects. This killer is not
part of a pack. He's a ruthless rogue.
The story is stunningly intense, with gripping
internalization from Jack's and Jenny's points of view.
Packed with romance, suspense, twists and turns, this
unpredictable, psychological thriller, will have you on

shoulder scraping her inner arm, then caught at her
wrist. The momentum tossed three plump grapefruit out of
a bag, up into the air. They hit the ground like mini
basketballs. Blood rushed to her head that began to

almost hear his throaty laugh as he reminded her he had
offered to help her to her car.
“Let me give you a hand.” The voice behind her was
rugged and smooth. If oozing nectar poured sound, it
would have been his voice.
Sienna couldn’t catch the grapefruit, but kept her
