The longest of the City of Devils books so far, Wolfman Confidential reveals the depths of the world that the previous two books have set up.

It begins with Nick Moss being hauled into the police station by his werewolf nemeses, officers Moon and Garou, and never lets up. Even at times when the action is more cerebral, there is still impending doom hanging over Nick (or those he cares about).

It turns out that humans are scary, too.

We get to see more of Nick's backstory as it becomes relevant to

This may be best of the City of Devils books because of how far into Nick's past we have to go, to see his friends from the War and how they're doing now, which is better than anticipated especially for a group of humans. Wolfman Confidential offers a complex plot with various figures interacting in ways I promise you will not suspect before the reveals. The human gang's power in a world full of monsters offers a lot of perspective about how to survive as a human in a monster's world, how to not ...more

Each book in the series is better than the last. There's such a great blend of noir, comedy, and monsters in these books, without all off the additional padding or angst that can come with an urban fantasy novel. If someone would have told me "you'll really like this new lady character - she's actually several women's body parts stitched together and she can't speak, she can only write on a chalk board", well.. okay, I would have believed you, this series' worldbuilding is exactly up my alley. J ...more

I absolutely love the City of Devils novels and Wolfman Confidential is the best one yet. For a series that contains just about every type of monster to ever grace the screen or the page existing in a world where humans, an endangered species, carry pockets full of herbs, powders, and the like to ward off being turned into one of them, Wolfman feels the most grounded in the noir genre. Despite the fantastical elements of the world in which it depicts, Wolfman Confidential is right up there with ...more

I've read all the books in the City of Devils series and this is by far the best yet. Robinson has reached the sweet spot in the series where he's got the setting established and a cast of recurring characters to work with and can just concentrate on telling a rollicking tale. That's not to say there are no fascinating new elements here, because there very much are. But veterans will be well gratified by the cultivation of seeds planted all the way back in the very first novel. And in the best n ...more

Another excellent entry in a series that is, I'm sure, passing nearly everyone by. Justin Robinson has not only created a magnificent world, but he's done such a good job that now he can just play in it. And play he does, changing up the structure and the characters in ways that feel organic, earned, and exciting. The previous entry, FIFTY FEET OF TROUBLE, was maybe more fun than this one -- but this is a stronger book, for sure. I hope Robinson keeps playing in the City of Devils, and I hope th ...more

Noir+Mystery+Monsters=terrific third book

I continue to adore this series. It's like a weird little niche of noir/horror/mystery with a lot of humor thrown in. The world drags you in and the intriguing characters make you want to keep reading and learning more.

The mystery is really well done. The main character Nick has some hard decisions to make in this book and I can't wait to see what happens next.

In other words, if you haven't read this series you should because it's extremely absorbing and

Just finished "Wolfman Confidential". A very enjoyable read and a lot of the mashup!
After reading this and "City of Devils" I'd love to see a book on the Night War!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, which is now live at Skiffy and Fanty. But in brief, of all the noir/urban fantasy mash-ups in all the libraries in all the world, I'm glad this one shows up in mine. Justin Robinson adds just the right touches of humor and heart to these stories of movie monsters not only come to life but ruling the world, and one puny human detective just trying to make his way among the mad scientists, crawling eyes, mummy politicians, vampire lawyers, zombi ...more

Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles. He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose and wondering what that disgusting smell is. Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a more attractive option.
