After getting out of the Army, Ben becomes a private investigator, in which capacity one of his big clients is billionaire pharmaceuticals CEO Alex Jarrett. Ben’s Ranger experience makes him a great PI, tenacious, tough, and clever… but his experience as a POW in the middle east leaves him with post-traumatic stress issues. And getting the crap kicked out of him by Jarrett’s enemies doesn’t help.
Jarrett’s enemies include Hans Ostheim, who is also a pharma CEO… and a werewolf to boot. Ostheim’s wife is a vampire struggling with a terrible illness, and there is no threat, sabotage, espionage, or bullying to which Ostheim will not stoop to get the remedy from his rival Alex Jarrett.
And when Ben gets beat up one time too many, Jarrett injects the remedy… a nanotechnological healing serum… into Ben’s body to save him. Mind you, becoming the story’s McGuffin can only make Ben’s life worse.
Writers of the Future winner Julie Frost’s novel debut Pack Dynamics is packed with action, monsters, and tough gals and guys. It’s reminiscent of Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter International series, played out on a smaller stage. If you like awesome, this one’s for you.
