Wolves. I can’t recall the last time I read a finely written novel as packed with evil and violence as the new one by William Giraldi titled, Hold the Dark. Set in Alaska where the wolves seem to be coming for the children, Giraldi explores close family ties in the remote tundra. Giraldi develops the characters so completely that before very long in the plot I understood behavior that I would have judged differently had I not allowed myself to let Giraldi unveil the story. Thanks to his fine writing, the setting and nature become characters in their own way. Not a single sentence made me smile, and that seems just right.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
