One of the first werewolf novels ever written!
A lost classic from the author of The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask.
What’s the next best thing to having a walking wolf grant your wishes? Would it be enough to take revenge on those who oppose you?
To Thibault the shoemaker, that pact is worth more than gold. Or at least more than the single, dark hairs on his handsome, youthful head. What could go wrong when one can simply wish their enemies out of the way? Alexandre Dumas brings us a story of envy so ravenous, it eats its own heart.
"A complex and nuanced novel that, upon repeated readings, yields more insight and entertainment even after more than one hundred and sixty years."—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of The Wolfman
