Meet George and Lou, thugs for hire. The kind of intimidating-yet-friendly guys who will break your thumbs, but be nice about it.
Their latest assignment is to drive across Florida to deliver some precious cargo to a crime lord. The cargo: a man in a cage. Though Ivan seems perfectly human, they're warned that he is, in fact, a bloodthirsty werewolf.
George and Lou don't believe in the supernatural, but even if they did, it's daytime and tonight isn't the full moon. It's just a simple transport job, albeit one that carries severe consequences if they screw it up. Their instructions are straightforward: Do not open the cage. Do not reach into the cage. Do not throw anything into the cage.
And they don't. Unfortunately, Ivan doesn't play by the usual werewolf rules, and the thugs find themselves suddenly responsible for a vicious escaped beast. One who can transform at will. One who enjoys killing in human form as much as he enjoys killing as a monster.
If George and Lou want to save their careers, dozens of people, and their own lives, they need to recapture him. Because Ivan the werewolf is in the mood for a murder spree...

About the Author
Jeff Strand is a funny, deeply disturbed individual. —Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season and The Girl Next Door Jeff Strand's bio used to mention his cat, but every author mentions a cat in their bio, so he's decided to quit doing it. Fight the power. He's been writing ever since he was old enough to throw screaming fits in crowded supermarkets, though the quality of his work from that era is questionable. "How to Rescue a Dead Princess" is his silliest book. If you're looking for something less silly, although not exactly high literature, you may want to try his Andrew Mayhem series: "Graverobbers Wanted (No Experience Necessary)," "Single White Psychopath Seeks Same," and "Casket For Sale (Only Used Once)." Also available is his obligatory 'giant ants attack the world' novel, "Mandibles." Cemetery Dance magazine said that "No author working today comes close to Jeff Strand's perfect mixture of comedy and terror." They weren't talking about "How to Rescue a Dead Princess." He checks his e-mail every forty-six seconds, and receiving e-mail from his readers makes him positively giddy. It's almost a little creepy. Write him at your own risk at JeffStrand@aol.com
