  • I was absolutely underwhelmed and disappointed with "WOLF HUNT". I'm a fan of Napoleonic Era fiction, and the fact that "WOLF HUNT" was also a mystery novel made me feel that I was in for a treat, because I love a well-written, engaging mystery novel, too. "WOLF HUNT" is set in Austria in 1809. A young officer (Lukas Relmyer) in the French Army in the forest near a recently concluded battle comes across the corpse of a young man, whose face was mutilated in such a way that it bore a macabre grim [...]



  • Cabasson is well-known for his obsessive study of the Napoleonic wars, but he has considerable trouble separating his hobby from the necessity of terseness in his prose, and so this book has the usual long excursuses into regimental history, battle plans (both French and Austrian), and a few supercilious put-downs of the Viennese. Quentin Margont is a French soldier who, when he is not butchering the enemy, likes to ponder egaliteraniasm and the remains of the Revolution of 1789, and, at other t [...]


  • As a crime/thriller this fails. As a story about the 1809 Napoleon Austrian campaign it is an OK read which is short enough to allow one to forgive its weaknesses.


  • Military mystery set in Austria, 1809, during the Napoleonic wars. A wolf hunt - with a wolf hunting you back. Young lieutenant Lukas Relmyer is back at the place where he and his friend Franz were kidnapped and put into the cellar in order to get weak - to be an easy target for a murderer. Lukas escaped, Franz had not. But Lukas is not an adolescent he was 4 years ago anymore, now he is a renowned duellist charged for hunting the abductor and making him pay for the Franz's death. But the murder [...]


  • "Wolf Hunt" by Armand Cabasson is an historical mystery or more accurately , historical fiction with a hunt for a vicious murder. The story takes place during Napoleon' attack on Austria in the summer of about 1810. During a loll in combat, the body of a boy is discovered horribly mutilated. In the midst a warfare, an investigation is started involving French officers who vow to find the killer.The book is written with very good descriptions of life in the armies of the time, and of the warfare [...]


  • Translated from the original French, it was sometimes odd - grammatically correct, but not normal language. Taking place during Napoleon's war against the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the serial child-killer uses the chaos of war to hide his crimes. On the other side is Relmyer, a grown-up escaped victim looking for redemption, and a French Republican who has his own deep issues in assisting with the disorganized investigation. The climax to the investigation comes after a long description of the cl [...]


  • Historical mystery set against the Occupation of Vienna and Battle of Wagram. The same cast of characters as Officer's Prey. Captain Margot battles his own demons along with Relmyer. Interesting historically.


  • A vivid, atmospheric story set during the Napoleonic Wars.A well written tale of murder, mysterious killing and vengeance.A great read and highly recommended.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Gallic Books via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.


  • The murder mystery was a convenient hook to hang some great accounts of Napoleonic warfare. I particularly enjoyed Cabasson's use of the Battle of Wagram for his climax.
