Product description

Product Description

In the shadowed corners behind enemy lines, Michael Gallatin is England's most potent weapon against Nazi Germany. Blessed and cursed by the ability to transform his flesh, Michael lives between worlds as both man and wolf. A gifted spy and a cunning warrior, he is unmatched in the field. No ordinary agent of the British Crown, he's the one they send when there s no one else.

Returning to a vision first imagined in the New York Times Bestseller The Wolf's Hour, horror master Robert McCammon traces the life of a single man in the midst of the Second World War. From a traveling circus in the Russian steppes, to the skies of North Africa, to the gritty underworld of Berlin itself, The Hunter from the Woods pits Michael against impossible odds, where failure means death and so, too, might victory.

Told through a series of interconnected novellas and short stories, McCammon shows us how Michael lived and loved during a time in history when there was little room for either. A visceral and primal journey, The Hunter from the Woods revels in the intimate cruelty of war, but never fails to illuminate the resilience of the human spirit.

The Wolf's Hour may be Michael Gallatin's greatest adventure, but these are the stories that comprise his life. They present an alternate history every Robert McCammon fan, and every fan of thrilling fiction, will want to read.

From the Inside Flap

The Hunter from the Woods marks the much-anticipated return of Michael Gallatin, the lycanthropic hero of Robert McCammon's 1989 classic, The Wolf's Hour. These all-new, interlinked stories offer a full measure of McCammon's trademark narrative excitement, and comprise a fascinating composite portrait of a unique fictional creation.The volume opens with a pair of brief glimpses into Michael's early life in Russia and his initial recruitment into the British Secret Service. It ends with a haunting vision of the werewolf at twilight. In between, McCammon gives us three stellar novellas depicting different phases of Michael's long, brutal war against Nazi Germany. “Sea Chase” is a nautical tale about the hazards of transporting a defecting German scientist to a place of sanctuary in England. “The Wolf and the Eagle” is the account of an unlikely friendship between rival “men of action” and a harrowing portrayal of a lethal forced march through the North African desert. “The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs” tells of an impossible, ultimately tragic love affair set in the embattled city of Berlin during the latter stages of the war.Erotic, visceral, and filled with moments of desolating horror and unexpected warmth, The Hunter from the Woods is a triumph of imaginative storytelling. Like the best of McCammon's earlier work, it offers intelligent, world-class entertainment. In the process, it shines a welcome new light on one of the most uncommon heroes in contemporary fiction.
