    A were named Coot?? I think I need to re-read Club Dead (book 3) ‘coz I don’t remember a were named Coot. I remember Dawson and Patrick Furnan……

    • jay

      there is no coot in the books. There is a terence character who is the packmaster of the mississpi weres. I believe coot is a character conjured up by the show to be the leader of the were-biker gang which is mentioned in the book.

    • LOL! Hi Jay, I knew that he was born in New Zealand but moved to Australia when he was young and has done alot of work there. So I thought it is the best was to describe him because if I associated him with one group versus the other someone would be upset. LOL! πŸ™‚
