Fair Game by Patricia Briggs

In Fair Game, the third installment in the Alpha and Omega Series, Patricia Briggs continues the relationship between serious and quiet wolf Charles and his wife, Anna. Charles is the only known born werewolf, and son of the Marrock and also the werewolf punisher for his father, Bran. Anna is an Omega, a wolf that can calm the fiercest of tempers. Recently, werewolves outed themselves to the public and while they can be with the general public, they have a very violent edge and it doesn’t take much for them to lose themselves. Trying to keep the peace, Bran sends Charles out to kill those wolves who have stepped out of line. Which means Charles has killed many and it is starting to weigh him down.

Anna goes to Bran to talk with him about not having Charles go out to kill anymore, she knows something is going on with him but Bran claims Charles is the only one who could handle doing the killing...or so he thinks. After a talk with a fellow Wolf,
Bran rethinks things and realizes Anna may be right, so he comes up with a somewhat temporary solution for him. There have been some murders in the Boston area involving werewolves and FBI are desperate to catch this serial killer, they have finally given into the fact they might need a werewolf to give them some insight. Bran sends Anna and Charles to Boston and when a Fae’s daughter becomes the next victim, Charles and Anna stick around until they can bring justice.

In this book we get great drama and conflict and we get to meet some new characters. The ending sets up something big and I'm super excited to read the next installment. I think out of the Alpha and Omega series, this one is my favorite.

Synopsis
They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.

Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.

Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights
