Full Wolf Moon
Jeremy Logan is taking a break to go deep into the Adirondack mountains and finish his paper/book (He calls is some fancy-smancy name) and once he gets there he sees that his old college friend is now the park ranger for the area...and some funky stuff has been happening when the moon is full.
His friend reaches out to him to help with what's going on. The reason why is Logan is an "enigmologist"--an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation ...more

An old college friend of Jeremy’s, Randall Jessup, shows up one day at his cabin and asks for his help. Randall is a park ranger investiga...more

This book was sadly disappointing.
While I used to enjoy the Preston and Child stories on the adventures of Agent Pendergast, their creativity of late seems to be on the wan.
Unfortunately this is true for Lincoln Child's solo stories.
Yes, the story is well written, but it's like receiving a well knitted ugly Christmas sweater.
You can appreciate the quality of the construction but the product itself is not something you enjoy.
Jeremy Logan has been to just about the craziest places on earth that you could imagine. Whether it's at the bottom of the ocean, Alaska's remote Federal Wildl ...more
Suspension of disbelief provides strong tension throughout as our protagonist himself struggles with his intent to maintain an open mind. Dr. Jeremy Logan, Yale Professor of History, is by avocation (and a growing reputation), an "enigmalogist,' an individual who studies and investigates odd phenomena without an apparent cause. For example, Dr. Logan has investigated "Nessie," Scotland's Loch Ness Monster.
When the novel commences, he is ensconcing himsel ...more
This book was a huge disappointment. Formulaic, trope-laden, and seemingly, written in a rush. If I had to read about the 'bloated moon' one more time...and then I did, near the end. Not that 'bloated' isn't a good description for a huge full mo ...more
has some interesting theories, don't know how based in reality but it keeps it from being fluff. yet a super beach read as it is not too heavy and is very plot oriented
My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for the opportunity to read this book.
This was a decent read. Would I rec, sure if your a fan of the author. I wouldn’t necessarily rec to someone who has never read.
The plot was okay. Again far fetched but plausible to the storyline. Yes this is fiction and it’s a product of the author’s imagination. The question is did the author make me a believer. Not so much.
It could be me. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood for a mystery/suspense/thriller. IDK
I saw this one ...more
Jeremy Logan, enigmologist is hot on the trail trying to investigate a spate of vicious killings occurring in the Adirondack Mount ...more
Enigmatologist Jeremy Logan travels to a writers’ retreat in the Adirondacks to get a book written. But mystery finds him when an old friend asks him to look into a series of murders in which the victims were savagely torn apart, as if by some wild animal. And the killings coincide with the full moon …
Despite this not being the first Logan book, it stands pretty well on its own. He’s a recurring protagonist, but that's about it. There aren't re ...more
Don't go out tonight...
Reasonably entertaining, but thoroughly preposterous beach read. I like our hero, the renowned "enigmologist" and I'm thinking I might share his empathic precognition just a teensy bit because my predictions of which expendable character is dispatched in some escalatingly gruesome way often turns out to be eerily prescient. I may need to buy myself a snazzy vintage car and hang up a shingle. ...more
My actual rating was a 3.5/5 stars
Jeremy Logan has decided to visit the infamous Cloudwater, an artist's retreat where writers, artists, and musicians go to do their work in seclusion. He checks in with every intention of finishing his monologue on heresy in the Middle Ages, but things don't go as planned. There have been vicious and gruesome murders in the Adirondacks, close to Desolation Mountain a ...more
This is the first time I've read a book by this author and about Jeremy Logan. I really enjoyed it! It reminded me of a non supernatural Dean Koontz book. It was an interesting story, I won't disclose details, as the book should be read. I will say that I am looking forward to another Jeremy Logan installment!
Genre: Mystery/horror, suspense
Shortest summary ever: Something is attacking wayward hikers in the Adirondack Mountains. Guess what is might be? Jeremy Logan, an “enigmologist” (my new career – someone who studies the unexplainable) happens to be in the area where his old college buddy works and thus is dragged into the fray.
What’s good under the hood: I was adequately freaked out in places since I have hiked with my crazy-as-all-get-out hiker brother D ...more

I like this Jeremy Logan series written by Lincoln Child - I've read a couple other of the now five books in the series. I also like the Pendergast series that he co-writes with author Douglas Preston.
Dr. Jeremy Logan is a scholar/historian and a Professor of History at Yale that has come to Cloudwater in the Adirondacks as an artist-in-residence. He comes to this retreat to hopefully finish a monograph on heresy in the Middle Ages that he's worked on for years. ...more
Lincoln seemed to have acquired an interest in writing as early as second grade, when he wrote a short story entitled Bumble the Elephant (now believed by scholars to be lost). Along with two dozen shor ...more
