April Books 13) Kursaal, by Peter Anghelides

The Eighth Doctor Adventures, having tried vampires a bit earlier, now switch to werewolves - though werewolves on a distant planet which is being exploited by ruthless industrialists trying to turn it into a tourist resort. The werewolf bits are memorably nasty and scary; there is a somewhat clichéd but basically endearing tough cop who has to work out the mystery and also what the Doctor and Sam are doing; I wasn't totally convinced by the political set-up, or by the handling of the climaxes of either half of the book. But if you like Doctor Who and you like werewolf stories you'll probably like this one.
