About the Book
Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until Edinburgh is safe.
Detective Inspector 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: Detective Constable Tim Myerscough, the son of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable Sir Peter Myerscough.
Hunter’s perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this first novel in The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries series.
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. Hunter’s Chase is a new series of books that is set in Edinburgh. Hunter is one of the more senior detectives in the squad and despite the book being about him there is also plenty of focus on the other members in the team. One of these is Will, and he has more to prove than the others. Not only is he new, he is also the son of a once high-ranking officer who is now an MP. There is history between him and Hunter and he has to get past the feeling of special favours being granted. Will was probably my favourite member of the police and I’m interested to see what happens to him next.
But the characters who I thought were portrayed the best were the younger ones. Jamie, with his delusions of being an object of desire, Frankie with his devotion to Annie, and Annie herself. Her story is very sad but I thought it cleverly done.
I am interested in seeing what happens in book two, which I will be reviewing next month.
