I dove into this book. It started out great, a thrilling page-turner. I gradually lost interest in the story after the first half. Some of the characters were interesting, some bored me. The plot twists were not at all surprising and I found myself skimming through much of the book toward the end. I had no doubts about the innocence of the accused. Was I supposed to think she was guilty? The story line focused on whether or not she was guilty, and it shouldn't have in my opinion. This book was mildly entertaining, the second half very disappointing, the ending too abrupt. Perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for another whodunit. I've definitely read better. This was my first book by John Lescraort. I'll give him another try sometime.

The plot of this book is gripping. It is quite a surprise ending and I'm sure that enthusiasts of police procedurals will enjoy this immensely.

I am a huge John Lescroart fan. The Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitsky series has been a joy to read and it was with some curiosity that I awaited the release of The Hunt Club. This was to be a departure from the past and I was hoping it would measure up.

Dismas Hardy makes a few cameo appearances in this novel, but this story as about a new character, Wyatt Hunt, PI. Still set in San Francisco, Hunt becomes involved in the murder of a federal judge and his mistress and the disappearance of a television personality... The beginning of the novel is promising and it is not long before you find yourself immersed in the intrigue however, for far too long, the story is allowed to meander without apparent purpose until as the end comes into sight, Lescroart finds his feet again and puts some very interesting finishing touches to it.

This is a novel that does not beg for or even promise a sequel. It can easily be a stand alone book and if there are no further adventures of Wyatt Hunt, that will be alright with me. Hopefully, if Mr. Hunt is to have some longevity in future novels, the author will find something about him to make him relevant to those of us who admire his writing.
