Once an orphaned child found wandering the Trans-Canada highway, Darkly Stewart is now a grown woman and undercover RCMP Constable with the uncanny ability to taste the traces of murder that linger in the air. It’s a sensation like touching her tongue to a battery. When the investigation into the murder of Darkly’s partner leads her to a gold rush era ghost town in the wilds of British Columbia, she uncovers the secrets of her own forgotten past. Wolf Woods is indeed a town destined for extinction, unless the residents that call it home can adopt recruits from the outside world…beginning with Darkly.
She is a fine-tuned instrument of justice investigating a world in which werewolfism is a sexually-transmitted disease.
She is Darkly Stewart: the woman who tasted death.
THE WOMAN WHO TASTED DEATH is available from Amazon.
“DG Wood has crafted an addictive heroine you can’t get enough of. Darkly Stewart lives in the shadows of our fears and haunts our senses.
She’s the most original character in years; an investigator who discovers her own past holds the key to the ultimate mystery.
Darkly shines a light on horror that we’ve never seen. Reader beware, you’ll never think about the woods the same way again.”
— Gary Grossman, Bestselling Author of the EXECUTIVE series and OLD EARTH.
“DG Wood has written a really strong, well-rounded FEMALE lead… which is brilliant. The novel took me on a journey I didn’t want to put down.
There’s enough intrigue for the well-read, and enough prediction for the DaVinci demon lovers out there. A happy mix to appeal to all.”
— Jamie Maclachlan, UK Actor of Film & Television.
