The first time Maddie Wilkes ever saw a wolf was when she was 12 years old.
It had been a night glazed with frost and white snow. Winter's icy chill outlined the air. The blackness of the forest was dimly illuminated by the moon's light.
Maddie's face was flushed with a cool blue. Her cardigan was wrapped tightly around her, to preserve what body warmth she had left. Her skirt and boots were caked with snow.
Maddie had been playing with her cousins earlier until she had gotten lost in the forest. Her cousins had ditched her.
Maddie noticed a shadow hiding in the bush. It was a large, poised creature. Like a wolf.
The shadow padded into view. It was a dark brown-furred wolf with deep gold eyes. Normally, Maddie would have noted that he was a very handsome creature but she was too cold to respond.
The wolf padded over to Maddie. It nudged her with it's nose then jerked its head forward.
"You want me to follow you?" Maddie asked.
The wolf nodded. It started walked ahead, Maddie following close behind.
The two walked on until Maddie was able to see her aunt's house through all the smog.
Maddie faced the wolf and knelt in front of it. "Thanks, I won't forget this" she stated, lightly petting the wolf's head. She stood up and walked back to her aunt's house.
The wolf did not make a move until it knew that Maddie had gotten inside safely. It then turned and darted into the forest.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable.

ElNachoWOTC: The grammar is tight and easy too read while packing a great vocabulary and you use a lot of vivid imagery with your words. One of the biggest things I noticed right away is the gritty realism you managed to cram into this book while going into a lot of exotic fantasy material. Including issue...
