A tale of war, revenge, and long buried secrets . . .
Something is prowling the streets of World War II London. It goes hunting during the fires and turmoil of the Blitz when most people are dodging Nazi bombs. But this creature isn't deterred by the destruction or the carnage. As its victims start turning up shredded and gnawed, the East End community of Smiths Common become terrifies of what might be preying on then. Only the gypsies will give it a name: Werewolf.
Against the chaos, Detective Sergeant George Llewellyn’s assignment is to solve a series of brutal child slayings. A victim of his own abused past, George is haunted by the killings. As the pieces of the puzzle fit together, he is forced to confront his own rage and a decade-old gypsy curse before he can stop the ravages of the werewolf. . .
