The Hunted

I want to thank Mr. Barcomb for sending me a copy of his book to review.



When Lucky was just eight years old, she witnessed her father killing her mother. Her father tried to make it seem like it was an accident but at the last second, Lucky couldn't go through with it and turned her father in. He was sent away but he would never forget who was responsible for where he is now.

Many years later, Lucky is all grown up and has tried to put her life together pretty well. She had better watch her back, as her father is now a free man. He his one thing on his mind...revenge.

New York Police Department Homicide Detective Frank Russo has been called on the scene of a murder. A young man has been found with his brains bashed in and a wine bottle shoved up his ass. Detective Russo tries to wrap his mind around what type of sick person who do something like this to someone else. Unfortunately his doesn't have much time to ponder on the current matter, as his has a serial killer on his hands.

The Hunted is the first book to feature Homicide Detective Frank Russo. This story moves really fast in a good way, but at the same time, there was a point at the beginning where I did stumble a bit. This was because there were so many different characters written into this story that I had a hard time trying to separate and figure out what each characters connection was in the storyline. Once I gotten everyone straighted out in my head, the book read pretty smoothly after that. Mr. Barcomb shows he can produce a good suspense/thriller police drama.
