They kept to the shadows so no one would know they existed, and preyed on the nameless who no one would miss. Where did they come from, and who was protecting them? In a city that had seen every kind of savagery, they were something new, something more than murderous. And one woman, who had thought she had lost everything there was to lose in life, would soon find that nothing could possibly prepare her for what would come when she entered their world.

Gleason’s partner reached over and patted the kid on the shoulder.
“Don’t worry about it, son. We don’t get them often, but every now and then a stray animal makes its way in and does a number like this.”
“No, sir. I don’t think you followed me. I used to hunt all the time back home. And what I mean is I’ve never seen a single dog, or even a coyote, attack that looked that way.”
The kid took a breath, obviously feeling a bit more sure of himself.
“What I meant was, whatever animal attacked that old man, it wasn’t only one. I’d lay money he was attacked by a pack.”
