Empire of the Wolves by Jean-Christophe Grangé

Empire of the Wolves

Jean-Christophe Grangé

Fast-moving thriller which requires some concentration as the narrative unfolds from several angles. Don't be put off by the fact that it is in translation as it doesn't show! If you normally stick to British & American thrillers give this a try as the Turkish /French context didn't pose any cultural obstacles for this reader.

Extract

He knew what it was now: the bitter, profound, malevolent taste of fear. He was its sole source. It was exuding from every pore of his body.
