Wolf's Blind by W.D. Gagliani

Nothing’s more dangerous than a wounded wolf!

Injured by an explosion, homicide detective Nick Lupo should heal right up because he s a werewolf! But something keeps him from shifting into wolf form, making him unable to heal. New Mafia boss Joe Rabbioso is after Lupo, seeking his very brutal form of revenge, and he thinks he has Lupo on the ropes. Can loyal Jessie Hawkins and Lupo s partner, DiSanto, find Lupo before the hunter? Nick has a lot to deal with but only if he can manage to heal his wounded body first!

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Wolf's Blind was a decent read, unfortunately it just wasn't for me.
There is A LOT going on in this book: multiple characters and narratives, back-story galore (years in the past), the story itself was told in 4 parts but I didn't really understand the need to separate them.

Nick Lupo is a Detective, who just so happens to also be a werewolf. This is spoken about but not really shown. He has friends, and enemies, who are also werewolves.
The characters fell flat for me, no real depth or emotions (I didn't understand Heather, or what her ultimate purpose was).

Like I said above, this just wasn't for me – it was busy and I didn't connect with the characters.
