Back in 1978, when this book was written, is was probably a pretty scary story...but in 2012, not so much.
Okay, as I stated, The Wolfen didn't scare me, but it was a decent read. In fact, I really liked it. Now days, it's all about the supernatural. A lot of the books that are being read have some supernatural touch to it. This book is a werewolf tale minus the supernatural touch. These werewolves do not transform from human to creature during the full moon. These werewolves are a very intelligent, beastial species. They have thought patterns similar to humans, and this has kept them hidden among man for eons.
The pack of werewolves in this story have moved into New York, and made a huge mistake---they attacked and killed two cops. Now they are at risk of being exposed to the human population when detectives, Neff and Wilson are assigned to the case.
I found The Wolfen to be a quick and entertaining read.
