The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan

Jake is 200 years old and fond of scotch and prostitutes. He is, in other words, both more than human and all too human. Jake is also a werewolf, the last of his kind; the rest have been hunted down by a posse of fanatics. Duncan's take on the werewolf tale is rich and black and refreshingly novel: Jake is an aging, jaded sybarite who battles boredom and existential despair as well as werewolf hunters and vampires. 7/12
