Jessica James wants only to successfully defend her thesis and earn her degree. But when she discovers Professor Wolfgang Schumtzig's--her thesis advisor--dead body in a bathtub, she becomes entangled in a web of lies, secrets, mystery, and murder from which the only way out is through. For Jessica, survival begins to take on a new, and deadlier, meaning.
Enter Dmitry Durchenko, university janitor and former-heir to The Oxford Don's Russian mafia syndicate. At the age of eighteen, Dmitry cut ties with his family and fled his homeland with two of his father's most prized possessions--antique Russian paintings valued at several million dollars apiece. He's kept a low profile for decades, but after Schumtzig's death, his wife and daughter's lives are at stake.
Simultaneously heartwarming, irreverent, clever, suspenseful, and humorous, WOLF will keep you glued to the page.
For anyone who has ever wanted to murder the Wolf in their life.
