Having listened to the audiobook of this last year, I was delighted to get another chance to read and review the e-book version of this excellent thriller.
This fast-paced novel takes us around Edinburgh via the police detectives and the various criminals that inhabit this amazing city.
The story twists and turns – the plot is complex and the ending was unpredictable (first time round at least!). The characters are believable and relatable and totally drew me in. Even the villains had their redeeming qualities.
This is a wonderful story that kept me staying up late in to the night!
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 DI Wilson Crime series.
