I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I love a good vendetta and this book definitely had one. What would it take to make you take on international terrorism? What would push you to that limit? Well these guys crossed the wrong man.
I love the character of Vincent Marelli a.k.a. The Wolf. He is a great anti-hero.
The Wolf was packed with excitement and intensity. If you’re a fan of The Godfather this is definitely a good choice for you. You’ll appreciate the historical accuracy and references while reading. Some parts maybe drag out but all of it seemed important to the story line.
Although the storyline was compelling there were some parts of it that I wasn’t as thrilled with. Some of the characters did seem a bit one-dimensional in some areas and like I mentioned before, parts the story lagged. You certainly have to suspend disbelief in some of the action, but that’s why we read fiction right? Overall it was a fun read. It certainly wasn’t on the same level as The Godfather but it had the same feel. There’s more story involving terrorism then there was the inner workings of the mafia but you certainty get the picture.
Over all I give The Wolf 3 stars and pair it with a Wise Guy

Make the Drink
Invented by H.B. Stone. It is suggested not to add the dash of bitters unless Bombay Sapphire or another vapor-infused gin is used, or the drink may be too harsh. The glass has a pleasant aroma even when emptied.
1 1/2 oz Tuaca® citrus liqueur
3/4 oz Bombay Sapphire® gin
3/4 oz dry vermouth
1 dash Angostura® bitters
Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist a slice of lemon rind above the drink and rub along the rim, but do not drop into the drink.
