Серия: "-"

A hunter determined to wipe out every wolf in England almost succeeds, but then finds himself the prey—a reissue of the debut novel by the author of the acclaimed Smack It was a mistake for Ben to tell the Hunter that there were still wolves in Surrey, for the Hunter was a fanatic, always on the lookout for unusual prey.

But Ben and his father are equally determined to save Silver, Conna, and their family of wolf cubs. What happens when the Hunter becomes the hunted?
