About The Book
Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until his friend’s death is avenged.
DI Hunter Wilson is called to the scene of a murder. He is shocked to find the victim is his friend and colleague, George Reinbold.
Who would want to harm the quiet, old man? Why was a book worth £23,000 delivered to him that morning? Why is the security in George’s home so intense?
Hunter must investigate his friend’s past as well as the present to identify George’s killer.
When a new supply of cocaine from Peru floods HMP Edinburgh and the city, the courier leads Hunter to a criminal gang, but Hunter requires the help of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable, Sir Peter Myerscough, and local gangster, Ian Thomson, to make his case.
Hunter’s perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this taut crime thriller.
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. Hunter’s Revenge is the second book in the series. I would advise that you read Hunter’s Chase first. Some of the characters and storyline are linked.
Hunter and his team are determined to find out who killed one of their own. The reader knows from the beginning what happened to the victim before he arrived in Scotland but his friends had no idea.
I have read both books and this was the one that I preferred. I found it a little darker and less easy to work out who the murderer was. You read about the investigation but I feel this is a series where there is also a lot of focus on the characters, both professionally and personally.
Much is made of the forthcoming changes in the Scottish Police Force and tentative plans for the future are being discussed by members of the team. This left me wondering what would happen in the next book.
I was happy to see the return of both Frankie and Jamie. They bring an unintentional comical side to the novel. Frankie determined to do the best for his twins and Jamie still convinced that he is a hit with the ladies.
Whether this is a believable police procedural remains to be seen but it was an entertaining read.
