Finalist - 2017 Young Adult - High Plains Book Awards

Tony Shepherd’s life is pretty much figured out: he’s got a good family, he’s popular at school, and he’s a basketball star. But when his girlfriend disappears, he enlists the help of Charlie Wolfe, a wise-ass from “the wrong side of the tracks” who’s always willing to break the rules to get results.

However, these boy detectives find themselves in darker and much more dangerous worlds than the heroes of mysteries you may have read when you were younger.

Now's your chance to read this internationally-award winning series.

Praise for the book

Confronted by a 400+ page book, I recalled the words of one of Jane Austen’s characters: “If a book is well written, I always find it too short”…. To my delight, I was completely hooked by page 16 of Along Comes a Wolfe, and authors Counios and Gane never let me go. I now eagerly await the next installment of the “Shepherd & Wolfe” series.… What sets Along Comes a Wolfe apart from so many other “detective” novels directed at adolescents is the (unusual for the genre) richness of character development.

— Dave Jenkinson, Canadian Materials

Along Comes a Wolfe’s strengths lie in its well-drawn protagonists, but it also shines in illuminating the feeling of a teenager’s world of innocence and security being transformed into an adult world of secrets and danger. 


The pages turned and burned until the end. Then we wanted more.
