Very short story written as an extra for Frostbitten. It takes place before the book begins, and launched the investigation that eventually led Elena Michaels and Clayton Danvers to Alaska. Clay and Elena are going to visit a werewolf mutt named Paul Forbes. Forbes offers them information on a man-eating werewolf if the pack is willing to pay him ten grand. Instead, Clay threatens to tear off his ear. Forbes tells Clay and Elena what he knows and escapes with a torn, but still attached, ear.
