Sam Hunter is a bit of an animal. He’s a former Twin Cities cop who lost his badge because of excessive force. Abusive husbands, child molesters, and other lowlifes wound up looking like they’d been mauled by a dog … or a wolf. Now Sam’s a low-rent PI in Philadelphia. He takes the kinds of cases no one wants. His clients are usually on the fringes of society. The kind who are prey for all manner of predators—human and otherwise. When Sam takes on a client they become part of his “pack,” and no one protects their own better than a werewolf. At least, the kind of werewolf like Sam, who comes from a long, long line of Benandanti—also known as “the hounds of God.” In this short story from New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry’s The Sam Hunter Collection, Sam tries to rescue an abused woman from her vampire ex-husband.

Story

I really hope that Maberry will take on a full length novel about Sam Hunter, werewolf private investigator. This could make for a very fun story.

When I picked Like Part of the Family I didn’t realize that I had already listened to it once as part of a short story collection. At first I was really disappointed that this wasn’t something new and wonderful from Jonathan Maberry. But by the end I was just fine having listened to it again.

I really hope that Maberry will take on a full length novel about Sam Hunter, werewolf private investigator. This could make for a very fun story.

It is difficult enough to write a review about a short story. Especially the publisher’s summary doesn’t leave much for the listener/reader to find on their own. That is exactly what happens. So now that you know what happens, why would you want to listen?

Because Maberry is a magician or master craftsman with words. Like Part of the Family drew me right in and all of a sudden I was invested in the story. I simply wanted to listen to a beautifully written story.

Now a great story deserves a equally great performance and Tom Weiner delivers a home run with this one. I have listen to quite a few of his performances and I have never heard him use this particular accent and pacing. Made me truly believe that he was Sam Hunter from Philadelphia.
