Sinopse

Suspenseful, strange and riveting -- Wolves in disguise, birds as terrifying harbingers, prisoners-of-war and murderers inhabit the pages of this mini-collection from Douglas Clegg, award-winning and bestselling writer of The Children's Hour and Neverland. Three short stories and one novelette, originally published in a special deluxe limited hardcover. "Clegg (The Machinery of Night) shows how the bestial aspects of horror and humanity are interchangeable in this quartet of psychological suspense stories....riveting reading." -- Publishers Weekly Suspense and Horror Tales In "The Wolf" a hunter guides a young man up a mountain to track down the creature that has been slaughtering sheep in the valley below. "The American" takes place at a late-night cafe in Rome where foreigners gather. On this particular night a stranger steps out of the shadowy park to sit at the sidewalk tables and speak of love and murder. In "A Madness of Starlings," a father, teaching his children about protection from the predators of life, takes in a fledgling bird. But when it's time for the bird to fly away, the forces of nature come undone and a secret wisdom and terror enter the mind of the one who understands the language of birds. In the novellette, "The Dark Game," a war hero and his men are captured and taken into a prison camp. There, tortures and torments await them, but the man named Gordon Raglan begins to use a childhood game of escape to help him discover a way to hunt the wolves surrounding him.
