A Wolf On The Loose is a weekly e-serial, containing 36 parts spread over 5 episodes. One part is released weekly, free, on Amazon for 5 days (Monday-Friday). Completed episodes are available for purchase.
Amid struggling with his addictions, former Marine Andrew St George goes AWOL from his rich family and lavish lifestyle. He appears months later in Miami with one intent; convince his friend, Emilio Cortez, to start a Private Military Company with him. Having left the Corps after his brother was killed in a drive-by, Emilio’s been stuck working three jobs to support his extended family, all of whom he lives with in a small apartment.While Andrew and Emilio enter into the security business looking for an escape from their civilian lives, both struggle with their demons. From the slums of Miami, the glitzy South Beach nightlife, to Cartel controlled Mexico, the boys will learn that despite their best intentions, no one job is the same and that there are battles to be fought outside of war zones.
If I could describe A Wolf On The Loose in one word it would be intense. Andrew's flashbacks in part one of episode one just genuinely made me "feel" for him. I loved that he was able to go back to Emilio, and they still had their friendship from the Marines. The humor would definitely be considered rude, but I still loved it.
I feel like the little details in this "episode" made it personal and again, awesome. It cracked me up a little when the "Next Week: As Andrew helps Emilio deliver furniture..." phrase was at the end of each part. It was like if you were watching a TV show. The writing is faced paced which does give the reader a craving for more effect. I would give A Wolf On The Loose five stars!
