Theway he figures it, the disguise will give him an extra few moments' advantagevis-#65533;-vis any startled home owner if things get ugly... but he hasn'ttaken into account the existence of a society of real Montpellier-basedwerewolves who do not take kindly to this new pretender. So while Sven spendshis days playing chess and poker with his friends, sketching his way through hispicturesque chosen hometown, and coping with romantic dilemmas - both his andthose of his best friend, the Breakfast-at-Tiffany's -obsessed Audrey, whohas girl troubles of her own - little does he realize that a genuine threat tohis life, and for that matter his humanity, is closing in on him.
