Legend of the White Wolf is the fourth in Terry Spear's series. Something is up in the tiny snow encased town. Faith is chasing her recently departed boyfriend who heads into the woods. Cameron’s work associates disappeared in the same forest leaving cryptic, barely audible phone messages. The townsfolk elevate uncooperative to an art form when Faith starts asking questions.
Faith O’Malley is hot on the trail of her boyfriend. Make that ex-boyfriend. If leaving without a word wasn’t bad enough. He took the flash drive with all her father’s research on it. Her father was convinced what was on the drive would make his career. It looked like Hilson thought so too, only he wanted it for his career. How could she have been so blind? Faith stomps into her hotel mad at her ex, herself, and the need for the trip in the first place. It doesn’t help that the chatty desk clerk gave her the wrong key.
Cameron MacPherson is worried about his business partners. Said they were going hunting with a tour that uses wolves to scare out the prey. Then out of nowhere, he gets a call stating both his partners, Owen and David quit, and aren’t even coming back. How weird is that? Too weird for an ex-cop and military man, which is why he flew in to investigate.
Cameron and Faith meet early on and sparks ignite. The problems start to pile up along with the bodies. As a forensic investigator, Faith discovers silver in the corpses. It is an odd way to kill a person, but not a werewolf. The mystery deepens as someone continues to thwart Faith’s search.
The snow, isolation, even the cold takes on a dangerous edge. This isn’t fluffy snowball type of snow. The story is populated by the type of winter storms that freeze people in their tracks, mere feet from their home. Add to that, silvery wolves that slip through the woods with scarcely a sound. The story moves well, and throws real issues at both Faith and Cameron.
Legend of the White Wolf would probably be shelved as a paranormal romance, but also contains elements if suspense. I applaud Ms. Spear's handling of the wolves. Well done, I don’t consider myself a paranormal fan, but I am now a Terry Spear fan.
