Date: 09 Jan 2008

I'm about to start Joe Gores' WOLF TIME. I saw it in a bookshop the other day so naturally I had to pick it up. It too, according to the back cover, has a revenge theme, this time set in the midst of a presidential election. It seems to be a slight variant on this theme, however, in that the initial target is the protagonist himself, Hollis Fletcher, not a friend or family member.
