Things get even more complicated by the arrival of Sandy's proxy bride, revenge and greed collide and violence is the inevitable result.

  1. I cannot find a story of that name; and even an author's name "Edgar B. Cooper" at all in the depth of the internet or google book search. Any confirmation for the info about the story?

  2. Most likely an alias made up for an Italian writer. Like you I could find nothing on a writer with that name.

  3. Ah, another thing: In Germany at least this film is often shuffled together/confused with ZANNA BIANCA E IL CACCIATORE SOLITARIO, which was made by Brescia back to back with Woods and nearly all of the cast. Therefore, German alternative title "Wolfsblut - Der einsame Jäger" goes with this second film.
