From official release/information:
We've all seen movies about Werewolves and their strength, speed, and viciousness. But what if things were different. What if everyone or nearly everyone was a werewolf on the full-moon nights? How would they keep from killing each other or their pets or livestock? That's the premise of Benighted by Kit Whitfield. Lycanthropy is a genetic trait and those who don't manifest that trait are trained to look after the population during their change, protecting them from themselves. At the start of the book Lola May Galley is meeting with a client, Dick Ellaway who during a moon night tore off the hand of Johnny Marcos. Ellaway doesn't understand he's in DORLA's care now.
