Paradigm Shift - ACT I By Dirk I. Tiede


... Read It Now
Paradigm Shift is more than a Werewolf-in-the-city story. It's good Cop fiction first and foremost.

We enter the world of Paradigm Shift almost backwards: the Werewolf doesn't really appear until late in the first section.  Kate, the female lead and potential Werewolf, has no idea of what's happening at first; and we are introduced to her particular "problem" by means of side issues like ultra fast healing and sudden bursts of more than human speed and strength.

She is becoming aware that something is happening, but hasn't seemligly connected her odd capacities with her changing body, other than in a few nightmare remberances and in a stray hallucination or two.  While the assumption is that she is a classic Werewolf killing machine; there are clues that perhaps she isn't.  It would be fascinating to have her shifted into the Wolf, yet retaining her cop mentality and personality; but Dirk Tiede keeps us wondering, just like his hero, Kate.  Is she a monster or not?  The street hoods she deals with certainly are.  It will be very interesting to see just how she winds up, once the Change is complete; is she the classic mindless monster, or is she someone who is going to keep the criminals checking under their beds to make sure she isn't hiding there.

In a word, Excellent; as a mystery involving Kate, and as a Cop story set in Chicago.
