(The first book in the Sebastiano Cangio series)
A novel by

 
 
This "suspenseful and terrifying" story set in the wild mountains of Umbria has "enough twists to keep even the most seasoned reader guessing" (Booklist, starred review).

Sebastiano Cangio just accepted his dream job as a park ranger in the stunning Sybilline Mountains National Park in central Italy; it's a unique opportunity to study and live amongst the wild mountain wolves he loves so much. But when devastating earthquakes rock the region, the dream looks set to become a nightmare.

With the area evacuated, a ruthless Calabrian crime family seizes the chance to move in and pursue its own sinister agenda - an agenda Sebastiano can't abide. Having already run from the mafia once in his life, he embarks on a lone mission to protect the unspoiled landscape and ensure the survival of the wolf pack. Now Sebastiano is pursuing a menacing trail of criminality - a trail that leads all the way to the top.

Unfolding against the stunning backdrop of one of Italy's most breathtaking regions, Cry Wolf is a "stark tale of violent murder and rampant political corruption" from the acclaimed author of the Hanno Stiffennis mysteries (Publishers Weekly).

"Outstanding writing [with] enough twists to keep even the most seasoned reader guessing, this is a terrific read that belongs in all mystery collections." - Booklist (starred review)

"Gregorio effectively captures the grisly incongruities of mob relationships and the hypocrisies of Italian marital accommodations." - Publishers Weekly

"This series kickoff features some deliciously dry humor and a lively, tough-minded plot." - Kirkus Reviews
