Publisher's Summary

When John Simpson hears of a bizarre animal attack in his old home town of High Moor, it stirs memories of a long forgotten horror.
John knows the truth. A werewolf stalks the town once more, and on the night of the next full moon, the killing will begin again. He should know. He survived a werewolf attack in 1986, during the worst year of his life.
It's 1986 and the town is gripped in terror after the mutilated corpse of a young boy is found in the woods. When Sergeant Steven Wilkinson begins an investigation, with the help of a specialist hunter, he soon realises that this is no ordinary animal attack. Werewolves are real, and the trail of bodies is just beginning, with young John and his friends smack in the middle of it.
Twenty years later, John returns to High Moor. The latest attack involved one of his childhood enemies, but there's more going on than meets the eye. The consequences of his past actions, the reappearance of an old flame and a dying man who will either save or damn him are the least of his problems. The night of the full moon is approaching and time is running out. But how can he hope to stop a werewolf, when every full moon he transforms into a bloodthirsty monster himself?

Most Helpful

A story to get your teeth stuck into.

Would you consider the audio edition of High Moor to be better than the print version?

Unknown as I have only heard the audio, but the recording is crystal clear and the narrator Chris Barnes comes across perfectly.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I really like Steve the police officer, a kind of no nonsense cop with nothing to lose and the accent makes him a very likable character.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

Not wishing to ruin the story I will say any of the scenes with the kids, the patter is pretty much kids and again the narrator puts in a great performance for cheeky kids, troublesome teens and even a little girl.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Don't run, don't hide, just pray it's quick.


Any additional comments?

This is the second audio book I've heard from the narrator and his style and flow are spot on, a very rich likable story voice and then breaking into multiple character voices with accents make this a fantastic book, my only problem is that it ended.... I wanted more, and you will too.

Good Listen

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

quite new to the world of audio books, once you are used to the readers voice and how he plays out the book, it does listen well. I did get to the point in the book (just past half way) where I had to listen to it more and more to get to the next part... like a good book I didnt want to put it down. I will buy the next in the series to see where it moves on to.

Enjoyable listen - would listen to more read by Chris.
