A fire-breathing preacher and a pair of police officers all have something grisly in common; they're the latest victims in a series of bizarre ritualistic murders.
The police think that the killings are the work of the local street gang, The Lobos, who pattern their organization as if they are a real wolf pack.
But a down-on-his-luck teacher suspects that the killings may be the work of the Reuzenwolf, a species of werewolves that his grandfather used to talk about in the old country.

If you have been following my reviews, you will know that I love werewolves. I think that I hold some pretty high standards when it comes to this sub-genre. I don’t think I ever fully got into the audiobook, I wish I could have as I think there was promise.
Carnivores by Richard Poche was a pretty straight forward werewolf story. Containing all of the cliche item you would expect. I couldn’t find anything genre bending or particularly original. I really like the concept of a street gang as a pack of werewolves.
This was my first time listening to a performance by S.W. Salzman. And I must say that he has a very nice and pleasant voice. He was able to create several different voices, including very successful tonal changes, for various characters. Changing up the pacing as the story dictated. I wish I could have heard more of him voice as much of it was being covered up. All that being said I will definitely check out more from him.
But I do have an issue with the production of this audiobook. Throughout the entire story there was constant background noises and music that really took all of my attention away for what was happening in the story. Sometimes it even overpowered Salzman’s narration. One chapter had this infernal buzzing or static or something that made my hair stand on end. If it was just title and chapter breaks that had the sound effects and modulated voice, I would have been fine with that. I am not sure who’s idea it was to add all of the superfluous and distracting sounds, I do know that it was not a good idea.
