Description
In this thrilling novel by Lorenzo Carcaterra—the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Sleepers, Gangster, and Midnight Angels—organized crime goes to war with international terrorism in the name of one man’s quest for revenge.
 
My name is Vincent Marelli, though most people call me The Wolf. You’ve never met me, and if you’re lucky you never will. But in more ways than you could think of, I own you.
 
I run the biggest criminal operation in the world. We’re invisible but we’re everywhere. Wherever you go, whatever you do, however it is you spend your money, a piece of it lands in our pockets.
 
You would think that with that kind of power I would be invincible. You would be wrong. I made a mistake, one that a guy like me can never afford to make. I let my guard down. And because I did, my wife and daughters are gone. Murdered by terrorists with a lethal ax to grind.
 
That was my mistake.
 
But it was also theirs.
 
I wasn’t looking for a war with them. No one in my group was. But they’ve left me with nothing but a desire for revenge—so a war is what they’ll get. The full strength of international organized crime against every known terrorist group working today. Crime versus chaos.
 
We will protect our interests, and I will protect my son. We won’t get them all, but I will get my revenge, or I will die trying.
 
They will know my name.
 
They will feel my wrath.
 
They will fear The Wolf.
Praise for The Wolf
 
“Lorenzo Carcaterra is one of my favorite writers in the world, and The Wolf is his best book yet. In it you’ll meet the superbly crafted crime boss Vincent Marelli—and then you’ll spend this riveting read trying to decide whether Marelli, like Michael Corleone, is a hero or a villain. Pick up a copy of The Wolf and you won’t put it down until the surprise ending!”—Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of Accused
 
The Wolf crackles with the geopolitical high stakes of Homeland, the intrigue and lore of The Godfather, and the clock-ticking final showdown of 24. No one combines such themes as Renaissance art, global terror, and all things Italian like Lorenzo Carcaterra.”—Andrew Gross, New York Times bestselling author of Everything to Lose
 
“Binds a strong confessional voice with a taut revenge plot.”New York
 
“[A] high-octane thriller.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

      • content: Narrator Keith Szarabajka masterfully brings to life the intensity of this clash between organized crime and terrorism. The titular character is Vincent Morelli, an American Mafia leader whose wife and two daughters were killed by terrorists aboard an international flight. Morelli brokers a tentative alliance with other global mob bosses to go to war with the jihadists and the Russian mobsters who are financing them, in part because it makes good, long-term business sense but largely for revenge. This scintillating thriller requires dozens of accents for the characters on both sides, and the versatile Szarabajka rises to the challenge. He and the author come together successfully make this riveting work both an action story and a character study. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from June 16, 2014
        Carcaterra (Sleepers) explores the highest levels of organized crime and plumbs the depths of revenge in this high-octane thriller. At 37, Vincent Marelli (aka the Wolf) heads a United Nations of crime, a modern corporate structure uniting all the top-tier national criminal groups—except “the Russian mob, the Mexican crews, and every terrorist outfit on the grid.” Marelli’s wife, Lisa, wants to take a normal family vacation. But when Lisa and their two daughters perish in a terrorist attack aboard a commercial airline flight from L.A. to New York, Marelli persuades his fellow crime bosses to wage war against the suicidal terrorists and their enablers, who want to destroy everything his syndicate has built. By alternating Marelli’s first-person narrative with glimpses into the sinister Russian and terrorist mind sets, Carcaterra makes one group of bad guys convincingly bring down another group of bad guys and proves how murky that demarcation between good and evil really is. Agent: Erin Junkin, WME.
