It's not easy turning hairy and nasty every month. But science may have good news for the victims of lycanthropy in these United States. For five years now, ever since werewolves were 'outed,' fading actor MontyAllen had hosted an annual telethon to raise money for research to find a cure, and suddenly he claimed there was light at the end of the tunnel -- and it wasn't the light of the full moon. But then the chief researcher who developed the cure ws found inher laboratory with her throat torn out. When the researcher's assistant was killed in the same way, TV reporter Ashly Durban and ex-policeman Bob Savik investigated the case - but only turned up riddles. Had the dead researchers doubted that the highly-publicized cure would work? Does Monty Allen have a sinister reason for wanting to administer the anti-lycanthrope drug to all known werewolf cases? What about the vocal, obnoxious, but possibly well-intentioned, Werewolf Rights group? And if werewolves are really necessary to the balance of nature, what would happen if they all disappeared? Getting no answers that made snese, Durban and Savik kept asking embarrassing questions - until they found themselves on the run.
