Jake Marlowe is the last werewolf. Thanks to the efficiency of WOCOP (World Organization for the Control of Occult Phenomena), his species has been nearly exterminated. Just over 200 years old, Jake has an insatiable appreciation for good scotch, books, philosophy, and the pleasures of the flesh, with a voracious libido and a hunger for meat that drives him crazy each full moon. Although he is physically healthy, Jake has slipped into a deep existential crisis, so much so that he is considering taking his own life and ending a legend that has lived for thousands of years. But for very different reasons there are two dangerous groups-one new, one ancient-pursuing him, and they will stop at nothing to keep him alive for their own purposes, but Jake must find his own reason to live, which he does, just not where he expected.
