By Stephen Gallagher
A chilling monster story from a master of the genre
Joseph Visco had come to the remote Norwegian village to find work. Instead he found terror, lynch-fever and death. A village girl had been murdered and rumour was prevalent that a follower of the Norse myth - half wolf, half man with the power to take on the shape of its victim - was responsible.
