When I picked up this book I wasn't sure what to expect. How could it be as good as The Prey, Ms Brennan's debut book? Nothing could beat that, or so I thought. As you can tell, I was not disappointed. The Hunt, the second book in this trilogy is just as good. In fact, in some ways The Hunt is even better. Allison Brennan has yet again pulled out all the stops to create another gripping masterpiece. As an entertainer she knows how to pack a punch!
From the meaty dialogue to the thrilling, nail-biting plot, Allison sends her protagonist and all those who are dear to her to hell and back several times. Readers who love to hear gruesome details from inside a serial killer's mind, whilst peeking inside the forensic investigations as they unravel hidden clues, will be enthralled by her talented storytelling capabilities.
Also, if it's love you want, there are some great romantic and tender scenes to keep you happy, too. What a plot! It is obvious that a huge amount of planning and thorough research has been undertaken to produce such a believable and exciting story. I could quite easily imagine this being made into a film or a TV drama series. This is a taut, well-paced romantic thriller that will leave you desperate to read the third and final book in the series The Kill!
This book has everything you want...a murder, mystery, twist and turns and a little romance. The Butcher is on the rampage and former FBI trainee Miranda Moore who survived this killer years ago helps with the hunt for this serial killer. I was up all night reading this book.
Excellent book, there are two other books in this series, The Prey, The Hunt, and The Kill. I've read the first two books, they are fast paced, page turners!!!
I agree with the other reviewers....this is a great book. If you haven't read Allison Brennan yet you're missing some good reading. I read The Prey (very good book) and The Hunt (even better). I'm looking forward to reading The Kill next.
Touched by a killer, she feels the fire of revenge.
Twelve years ago, Miranda Moore miraculously survived the torture of a serial killer who was never caught. Since then, Miranda, a former FBI trainee and now a member of a local search-and-rescue squad, has witnessed with horror the recovery of the mutilated bodies of seven young women, all victims of her tormentor, known as The Butcher. When another beautiful Montana college student goes missing, the Feds get involved, and an agent, a man Miranda once trusted with her heart, arrives to take over the investigation - forcing her toward a painful choice.
Now, while Miranda battles her demons, while friends, lovers, and traitors are caught up in a frantic race against time, a killer hides in plain sight - waiting to finish the one hunt he has left undone.
