#BlogTour – #BookReview of #WolfPack by Will Dean @willrdean @PointBlankCrime @RandomTTours #RandomThingsTours #TeamTuva

I’m excited to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for the brilliant Wolf Pack by Will Dean. Thank you to Anne Cater and Point Blank for giving me the opportunity to read and review this wonderful book.

About the book:

When there’s a pack on the hunt, nobody’s safe…
After the traumatic events of the past year, Tuva is back as deputy editor reporting for the Gavrik Posten, but her world will never be the same.

A closed community

Rose Farm is home to a group of survivalists, heavily armed and completely cut off from the outside world.

A missing person

A young woman, Elsa Nyberg, goes missing within the perimeter of the farm compound. Can Tuva talk her way inside the tight-knit group to find her.

A frantic search

As Tuva attempts to unmask the culprit, she gains unique access to the residents. But soon she herself is in danger of the pack turning against her. Can she make her way back to safety and expose the truth?

Will Dean’s most heart-pounding Tuva Moodyson thriller yet takes Tuva to her limits, both professionally and in her personal life. Can she, and will she, make the right choice?

About the author:

WILL DEAN lives in the middle of a vast elk forest in Sweden, where the Tuva Moodyson novels are set. He grew up in the East Midlands. After studying Law at the LSE, and working in London, he settled in rural Sweden and built a wooden house in a boggy clearing, where he lives with his wife and son, and it’s from this base that he reads and writes. Will Dean is the author of Dark Pines, Red Snow, Black River and Bad Apples in the Tuva Moodyson series.

His debut novel in the series, Dark Pines, was selected for Zoe Ball’s Book Club and shortlisted for the Guardian Not the Booker prize. The second, Red Snow, won Best Independent Voice at the Amazon Publishing Readers’ Awards and was longlisted for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020, as was his third novel, Black River. The series is in development for television.

Will is also the author of two stand-alone novels, The Last Thing to Burn, shortlisted for the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2022, and First Born, both published by Hodder.

My Review:

Wolf Pack by Will Dean is the fifth book in the fantastic Tuva Moodyson series of novels that began with the brilliant Dark Pines.

Journalist Tuva Moodyson once again finds herself investigating a chilling story that will take her beyond anything she has ever had to deal with before. This time she is caught up in the disappearance of a young woman from outside the perimeter of Rose Farm, where a group of survivalists, heavily armed and completely cut off from the outside world, are living. Can Tuva talk her way into the tight knit community to find Elsa? Or is she about to put herself in even more danger than ever before?

Tuva is a fascinating character, who I feel I’ve come to know quite well over the course of the five books so far. The fact the author has written a strong female character with a disability, without it being the main focus of the story, is a huge draw for me, and something that I feel we need to see even more of in fiction. Tuva’s deafness is a part of who she is, but there’s so much more to her than that. She’s strong, determined and never lets anything get in her way. And once she sinks her teeth into a story there is most definitely no stopping her!

Will Dean is excellent at building up the mystery and suspense and this is used to great effect in this story, with the tension steadily rising, creating a dark and chilling atmosphere that sent shivers down my spine. Tuva is pushed to her limit in not only her job but also her personal life, with this being the most challenging investigation she has had to face so far.

Wolf Pack reads very well as a standalone thriller, but I do think that reading the previous four books in the series first would make for a much richer and more rewarding reading experience. Tuva is a fascinating character who I’m liking more and more with every book, with this story taking a much deeper look into the core of her personal life than ever before – and I can’t wait to find out even more about her as the series progresses.

With a strong cast of supporting characters and an underlying sense of menace throughout, Wolf Pack is a superbly plotted, well paced thriller that keeps you guessing right up until the final page has been turned. As someone who loved the first four books in the series I did wonder if the author would be able to keep the momentum going, but I needn’t have worried as he has done so with ease. Tuva Moodyson is fast becoming one of my favourite characters and I can’t wait to see what Will Dean has in store for her next!

Wolf Pack is a fast paced, exciting thriller that takes full advantage of its Swedish setting and I loved every word of it. A chilling thriller full of intrigue and suspense, it is yet another wonderful addition to what is already a great series of books..

Highly recommended.
