Simon and Schuster, 2012. ISBN 9780857072115.
Mackenzie and Amy were best friends, that was until Amy was murdered but she wasn't murdered by a human. Lupine Syndrome has been spreading and the werewolf attacks have increased with more and more of those infected struggling to control their blood lust. Now the trackers have come to the town of hemlock to track down Amy's killer. Mackenzie wants nothing more than to know who killed Amy but she refuses to work with the trackers so she decides to investigate by herself. However the more Mackenzie learns about Amy's death the more secrets she discovers about hemlock. Secrets that could be dangerous. Secrets that could change her life forever.
There are so many books about werewolves it's not funny, but I would have to say this probably my favourite. I would recommend Deadly Hemlock, as the town Hemlock has quite a lot of surprises for anyone who reads this book.
