Quin Lighthorn was released from a mental institution in order to help the FBI with an undercover operation—or so he thought. As part of Lighthorn’s undercover job, he becomes an intern at Safe Haven, a firm that pays out a portion of a life insurance plan to a terminally ill person so long as that person makes the firm the insurance policy’s beneficiary.

I am very surprised by In The Company of Wolves. The blurb really caught my attention and the actual book more than delivered.
I am still reeling from this thrilling story. A not so mentally stable hero whose perception is far from trustworthy is our main guide in James Michael Larranaga’s thriller. There are different points of view in the novel, but the hero’s one is definitely the most important.
Quin is our hero or should I say Anti-hero? I really don’t want to spoil any twists and turns, so let’s just say that Quin is a hero of many surprises and not all of them are pleasant. However, throughout In The Company of Wolves I couldn’t help but root for him, especially over the awful pack of wolves he gets involved in.
Quin is a bounty hunter hired to infiltrate a company of “Death Brokers”. They buy out life insurance policies of terminally ill patients for less than they are worth and make a profit when they die. When I read about it in the novel I went straight to Google and found out that this is an actual thing! How creepy!
While on assignment Quin realises that this company is actually expediting their clients’ death so they can have their paycheck and he decides to put a stop to it. In The Company of Wolves is Quin’s ups and downs dealing with this extremely hungry pack of wolves while overcoming his own shortcomings.
In The Company of Wolves is a thrill ride from start to finish and I for one cannot wait for more! I read in a lot of reviews on goodreads people complaining about the cliffhanger, but it’s not so bad and it definitely made me want to read much more.
One more thing I want to mention and that I really enjoyed was the whole parallel with wolves’ nature and the little facts about them before each section. I loved that they connected with what was to come and gave us a great insight into the characters behavior.
I really enjoyed In The Company of Wolves and thoroughly recommend it!
