|Plot Summary of The Wolf's Hour|
|"Michael Gallatin is one of Britian's premier spies and his talents have never been in greater demand now that Hitler is invading neighbornig countries and threatening to start a war. Little does the British Intelligence Agency or anyone else know why Micahel is so successful... he's a werewolf. Written in Archival Time (chapters bouncing back and forth between different years and characters), the reader learns of how Michael came to be a werewolf, how he grew in the deep forests of Russia, and why he's the one person who could shake the very foundations of Russia's empire. The Wolf's Hour is an involving work deserving of McCammon's name, and will keep any reader interested with its mix of espionage, romance, and finally, redemption."
