Meet Jake Marlowe. He loves good scotch, good books, and good meat—oh, and he’s over 200 years old. Jake is the last werewolf, and despite his physical health, he’s slipped into a deep existential crisis and has considered taking his own life. But two dangerous groups—one new, one ancient—want Jake to remain alive. In The Last Werewolf, Glen Duncan delivers a powerful, sexy new version of the werewolf legend, a monstrous thriller with a profoundly human heart.

Select praise for The Last Werewolf:

“Glorious…. I can’t help thinking that wry, world-weary Jake Marlowe would make a fabulous dinner companion. Just not during a full moon.”
—Justin Cronin, The New York Times Book Review

“Duncan has finally driven a stake through vampire supremacy…. Cerebral and campy, philosophical and ironic, The Last Werewolf is a novel that’s always licking its bloody lips and winking at us…. A dark thriller that explodes with enough conspiracies, subterfuges and murders to raise your hackles. Not to mention such hot werewolf sex that you’ll be tempted to wander out under the full moon yourself next month.”
—Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“Muscular and breathtaking…. When you finish reading this novel, you’re going to feel full. But it’s a good feeling of fullness, just as Jacob feels after one of his moonlight rampages.”
Los Angeles Times

“A shocking new take on the werewolf legend…. Intelligent, fast-moving, creative, and thrilling.”
The Daily Beast

“A clever narrative with a memorable antihero at its feral, furry heart.”
—Thom Geier, Entertainment Weekly
