Today is my stop on the Hunter’s Chase blog tour. I had the opportunity to read and review this one, so check it out!
Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until Edinburgh is safe.
DI Hunter Wilson knows there is a new supply of cocaine flooding his city and he needs to find the source but his attention is transferred to murder when a corpse is discovered in the grounds of a golf course. Shortly after the post-mortem, Hunter witnesses a second murder but that is not the end of the slaughter. With a young woman’s life also hanging in the balance, the last thing Hunter needs is a new man on his team: the son of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable. Hunter’s perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this taught crime thriller.
With memorable characters and a sizzling, action packed plot, Hunter’s Chase was one of those books you stay up all night reading because you can’t get enough.
I thoroughly enjoyed the bits of humor sprinkled into the dialogue. It gave the characters a bit more depth, and everything felt as though you were watching a movie.
I had a tough time guessing who the bad guy was, and I love when a crime thriller is so well written you can’t guess. The police procederals felt real as well. You can tell Val Penny did her research to write this book, and it pays off bringing us a fabulously realistic, page turning thriller.
I cannot wait to see what happens next in the lives of these characters!
