It happened quickly. Overnight, the greater Los Angeles area found itself in the horrifying grasp of a werewolf epidemic. Twenty eight days of the month they are no different than you or me--the High Bloods, who managed to go unaffected. But every full moon, they are the most ravenous creatures man has ever seen. A new law-enforcement agency has been created to keep tabs on the those whose blood runs Lycan. Rawson is an agent for Lycan Control, and his job is to make sure all the afflicted are found, monitored, and kept at bay the night they change. But the Lycans in Hollywood have risen to cultlike proportions, and Rawson's job is getting tougher. One night, a woman changes right in front of Rawson. And it's not a full moon. Someone deep in the annals of Hollywood has managed to trip the logic of the werewolves' being. Battling a rising tide of Lycan rights activists and a growing population of those who are choosing to be Lycan over High Blood, Rawson must carve a path to the top of the Lycan chain before all hell breaks loose.… (més)

Sometime after World War II, a virus emerged out of southeast Asia that once a month changes the infected into a werewolf-like creature. Fast forward to modern day, Rawson is a detective in the ILC - an agency dealing with Lycan enforcement - and society is much different from our world. Now suddenly, a few werewolves have begun to change out of phase with the Moon, and the authorities are worried.

On the surface, this looks like a horror/urban fantasy book. In reality, it's not. It's a noir detective story and owes a lot to Chandler and Spillane. The werewolves lend a different spin on the basic structure, but all the classic elements are there: hard-bitten detective, beautiful women with a dangerous side, conspiracy among the powerful. Good stuff! ( )

I usually don't read a 100 plus pages of a book and put the book down. I usually do it a lot sooner, but I really wanted to like this book...but I didn't. I put it down and thought long and hard if I should pick it back up. Nah! Life is too short to read a book that doesn't interests me within the first 100 pages. "zzzzzz" to put it mildly. ( )

Slow start, thrills a plenty after that. I'd likely have given it a 4-star had I been more of a thriller fan. ( )

High Bloods is fondly dedicated to the many authors of the
Good Old Stuff who were published by Gold Medal Books during the fifties and early sixties, from Edward S. Aarons to Harry Whittington. I learned a lot from you guys.
And a special nod of thanks to Steve Brackeen for putting me through college.
