I still have an old Avon paperback reissue of THE FALSE FACES from
when I was a kid, and although it's been many years since I read it, I
still have some memory of that opening, too.
I've also read and enjoyed the original THE LONE WOLF. But I'll warn
you now to avoid THE LONE WOLF'S SON. It's overwrought and
sluggishly-paced, and I eventually gave up on it as not worth the time
Well, if you guys vote yes, I could oblige with a review the first two LW
novels, these being all I've read so far. And indeed as has been pointed
out, the second in particular involved a fair bit of sleuthing...
- Hi Mary,
I'm not familiar with the real Whispering Knights, but yes, these are a
circle of standing stones,
