Season of the Wolf (Paperback)
A film crew travels to the small Colorado town of Silver Gap to make a documentary about climate change, no easy task in a town full of unbelieving hunters. Leading this crew is a man haunted by his family’s sins … and a few of his own – a man hunting for no small measure of redemption. But in the town of Silver Gap, hunters have become the hunted. It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! Once thought long gone from Colorado, it would seem that wolves have now returned, but they’re not your daddy’s wolves, oh no. And as if this wasn’t bad enough, wolves aren’t the only beasts on the prowl ...
Season of the Wolf is a pulse-pounding supernatural thriller with a message, and a whole lot of carnage … so release your inner Wolfen, learn a thing or two about the world you live in, and pray you don’t become prey.

When Alex Converse, heir to a coal company fortune, visits Silver Gap, Colorado to make an environmentally themed documentary film, he's hoping to change some minds and to soothe his own troubled conscience. But there's more going on—in his mind, and in Silver Gap—than Alex knows. People are dying and women are disappearing. Some of the killers have fur, fangs, and claws—but some don’t. What is Alex’s connection to the missing women? Will anyone live long enough to find out? And what’s up with those wolves?
Season of the Wolf is a heart-stopping supernatural thriller about climate change, the human capacity for evil, and the epic struggle between a small town’s citizens and impossible creatures from the dawn of history.
