The New York Times bestselling author of The Forgotten Room and Deep Storm is back with a new thriller that follows the trail of a killer who cannot exist...featuring Jeremy Logan, the renowned investigator of the supernatural and fantastic.
Legends, no matter how outlandish, are often grounded in reality. This has been the guiding principle behind the exhilarating career of Jeremy Logan, the "enigmologist"—an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation—previously seen in The Forgotten Room, The Third Gate, and Deep Storm. Logan has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never been more true than now.
Logan travels to an isolated writers' retreat deep in the Adirondacks to finally work on his book when the remote community is rocked by the grisly discovery of a dead hiker on Desolation Mountain. The body has been severely mauled, but the unusual savagery of the bite and claw marks call into question the initial suspicions of a wild bear attack. When Logan is asked to help investigate, he discovers no shortage of suspects capable of such an attack—and no shortage of locals willing to point the finger and spread incredible rumors. One rumor, too impossible to believe, has even the forest ranger believing in werewolves. As Logan gets to know the remote deep-woods landscape, including a respected woman scientist still struggling with the violent loss of her father in these very woods, Logan realizes he's up against something he has never seen before.
His most action-packed and white-knuckled novel to date, Full Wolf Moon is the perfect combination of exotic locales, provocative science, and raw action that make for a deeply entertaining Lincoln Child blockbuster.

Excerpts-
  • From the book 1

    At seven thirty in the evening Palmer stopped for another snack—handmade gorp and an energy bar from the lid pocket of his backpack. He'd sworn hours before that he wouldn't allow himself a real dinner—hot and steaming from his titanium griddle—until he'd found a decent place to tent for the night.

    He looked around slowly as he chewed the energy bar. He'd known it would be a rough slog, and he had believed himself familiar with the surrounding region, but nothing had prepared him for the hike in that day. Guess all the stories were true, he thought a little sourly.

    It was the second weekend in July, the sun was just starting to slip behind the horizon to the west, but he could nevertheless make out Desolation Mountain, maybe four miles to the north. It stood there, alone, a mirror of blue-black lake at its base, its green flanks exposed as if taunting him. Four miles—but with this country, it might as well be forty.

    "Shit," he muttered, shoving the wrapper of the energy bar into his pocket and starting off once again.

    Desolation Mountain was a trailless peak of 3,250 feet, making it not high enough to be among the "true" forty-six Adirondack tall peaks. Even so, its vertical rise and distance from other summits made it worth notching his belt with. But what made the mountain most attractive to hard-core backpackers, mountain hikers, and students of the Adirondacks was its remoteness. It was situated in the Desolation Lake area, west of the Five Ponds Wilderness—perhaps the wildest, most remote section of the entire six-million-acre park.

    Remoteness didn't bother David Palmer. He liked nothing better than to disappear into the wilderness and go for days without seeing another human being. It was actually getting to the mountain that was proving a real bitch.

    At first, it hadn't been bad at all. He'd left his SUV hidden among the trees at the Baldwin Mountain trailhead, then hiked five miles down a private logging road until at last it petered out. This was followed by miles of virgin, old-growth timber, so tall that it was always dusk beneath and the forest floor was soft and completely free of saplings.

    But then he left the Five Ponds Wilderness, the forest fell away behind him, and he began the approach to Desolation Lake. And here was where his fast, easy pace suddenly slowed to a crawl. The country grew ugly, barren, and nearly impossible to traverse. The wilderness between him and the mountain became a labyrinth of outwash bogs, blowdowns, and "kettle holes," forcing him to watch every step he took. There was no trail, of course, not even a herd path, and with ravines running at crisscrosses to each other he'd had to rely frequently on his Garmin Oregon handheld GPS. More than once he'd slipped on treacherous, barely visible rocks covered with lichen. Thank God he'd decided on wearing his off trailboots—otherwise he'd have turned an ankle, or worse, long before now.

    After another quarter mile, he stopped again. The way ahead was blocked by an overlapping downfall too tight for him to squeeze through with the heavy pack on his back. Cursing under his breath, he shrugged out of the pack, found the widest hole in the downfall, shoved the pack through, then wiggled his way in behind it. The dry ends of branches poked at his limbs and scratched his face.

    On the far side of the downfall he put the pack back on, making sure that the compression straps were good and tight. This late in the day a pack began to get heavy, and he wanted to make sure its contents stayed stable.

    He spent a moment, shrugging his shoulders this way and that, getting the pack into position....

Reviews-
  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from April 3, 2017
    In bestseller Childs’s scary, atmospheric fifth novel featuring Jeremy Logan, a Yale history professor and investigator of unexplained phenomena (after 2015’s The Forgotten Room), Logan looks for a rational explanation for rumors of werewolves. He has come to Cloudwater, a secluded Adirondacks retreat for creative people, to finish writing a monograph on heresy in the Middle Ages. But his plans are disrupted by a plea for help from an old college friend, forest ranger Randall Jessup. Jessup is worried by the deaths in recent months of two young, fit, highly experienced backpackers, each of whom was torn to pieces during a full moon near the small, isolated town of Pike Hollow. The official line is that the hikers were the victims of a bear, but Jessup doesn’t buy it. Logan agrees to help out and begins his inquiries in Pike Hollow, whose few stores are evocatively described as “pushed up close against the road as if grasping at a life preserver.” Fans of The X-Files will be enthralled. Agent: Eric Simonoff, William Morris Endeavor.

    As he brings back his favorite "enigmalogist," Dr. Jeremy Logan, Child (The Third Gate, 2012, etc.) adds DNA manipulation to a prehistoric legend to create a very modern werewolf.Seeking isolation to finish a paper, history professor Logan has taken temporary residence at Cloudwater, an artists' colony in the isolated Adirondack State Park. On his first day, Logan hears from Randall Jessup, a former Yale classmate who's now a senior officer in New York's Division of Forest Protection. There have been ugly deaths in the forest--bodies shredded, torn limb from limb--and Jessup asks Logan to investigate, knowing that he studies "phenomena beyond the bounds of regular science." It doesn't take long before Logan senses a "terrible wrongness," and he soon meets an independently wealthy researcher with two doctorates who's experimenting in his own secret laboratory and later encounters an isolated Deliverance-variety backwoods clan feared by locals. The researcher, symbolically named Feverbridge, has been puttering away in a lost-in-the-woods lab equipped with everything from a "UV transilluminator" to a "capillary gel DNA sequencer," driven by hubris and enabled by his beautiful scientist daughter. Littered with observations about things like "imaginal discs," air ion counters, and EM detectors, the narrative bounces from cliche to cliche--a state trooper who intends to solve the matter with assault rifles, a reclusive paroled ex-murderer suffering from mental illness, and a poet living a Walden-like existence. Child creates a perfectly creepy ambiance, and his dialogue and descriptions are yeomanlike, but it's difficult to invest much emotion in the characters. Mixing timeless legends of lycanthropy into a Jekyll-and-Hyde dynamic won't be everyone's cup of tea, but there's enough reading fun to while away an afternoon.

    When a hiker is found slain in the remote Adirondack Mountains, followed by another, the authorities are baffled. The only connection between the two crimes is that both men were murdered during the full moon. Superstitious townsfolk contend that a reclusive, inbred family of werewolves are responsible. With lycanthropy as his only lead, Head Park Ranger Randall Jessup appeals to his old schoolmate and now famous paranormal expert Jeremy Logan. Logan, the renowned "enigmologist," once again sets out to find the truth behind the impossible. Intriguing scientific exposition and the distinctly atmospheric setting of upstate New York add a little something more to this supernatural whodunit. Readers will be satisfied with the twist ending. The mystery is more cerebral than violent, and there is no romance for this masculine hero and the predominantly male cast. Though the book is part of the "Jeremy Logan" series, those who are unfamiliar with the other titles won't have trouble immersing themselves in this novel. VERDICT Recommend to those seeking a quick, suspenseful read and to fans of James Patterson, Michael Crichton, and Child and Douglas Preston's "Pendergast" series.-Tara Kehoe, formerly at the New Jersey State Library Talking Book and Braille Center, Trenton
