From the author of the Man Booker shortlisted The Quickening Maze In the Wolf's Mouth follows the lives of four very different men, all of them navigating the chaos and horror brought about by the Second World War. Fighting for the Allies are Will Walker, an ambitious English Field Security Officer and Ray Marfione, a wide-eyed Italian-American infantryman who dreams of home and the movies. Meanwhile in Sicily, Angilu, a young shepherd caught up in corruption and Ciro Albanese, a sinister Mafioso, are fighting their own battles with devastating consequences.
