My Thoughts: So, wow. If you don't already have a phobia of circuses and clowns, this book will definitely instill one in you! Brrrrr. Not much can be said about this short novella so as to avoid spoiling it, but it was a lot of fun. Plus: were-stoat! Irish were-stoat. Can't beat that.

Synopsis: Anticipating the worst keeps Deacon Chalk a step ahead. But he never expected that a badly-beaten were-bat female victim would suddenly mutate and almost take him out. Or that the freak undead that infected her can’t wait to turn all lycanthropes into uncontrollable killing machines… once he’s gone. And that day is getting awfully close. Deacon may be outnumbered, out-gunned, and cut off from help, but what the enemy doesn’t know is that’s exactly when the world’s best bounty hunter lives up to his billing…
