About the Author

Jeffrey Lee has a first class degree in Arabic and Islamic history from Oxford University, and is an award-winning broadcast journalist for the BBC and others. Born and raised in South Africa, he now lives in London.


[Jeffrey Lee] brings a blockbuster sensibility to this slice of the 12th-century Levant, dropping his man in the mountains of the Holy Land and letting him go to work, swinging swords, wooing princesses, toadying to emperors and smearing his enemies in honey before chaining them to the battlements... Reynald was a crusader on steroids: audacious, adventurous and violent. He earned his reputation, and like him or loathe him, his story is worth retelling, more than eight centuries on.--Dan Jones
A cracking read.--Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads
A swashbuckling yet scholarly biography of the infamous 12th-century crusader Reynald de Chatillon.--Sebastian Shakespeare
God's Wolf is well written, well informed, and exciting; in fact, it hooked me in straightaway... It is by far the liveliest work I've read on the subject.--Patricia Crone, former professor of Islamic history, Institute for Advanced Study
God's Wolf is enormously readable. It is written in a very lively style and with vigour and pace... This is a very exciting book, both scholarly and at the same time accessible to a wider readership.--Carole Hillenbrand, professor of Islamic history, University of Edinburgh
