The Hunt Tim Lebbon

Escape and they’ll kill your family.

The cruellest game. The highest stakes. Only she can bring his family back alive …

Rose is the one that got away. She was the prey in a human trophy hunt organised by an elite secret organisation for super-rich clients seeking a unique thrill. She paid a terrible price. Every moment since she has been planning her revenge … And now her day has come.

Chris returns from his morning run to find his wife and children missing and a stranger in his kitchen.

He’s told to run.

If he’s caught and killed, his family go free. If he escapes, they die.

Rose is the only one who can help him, but Rose only has her sights on one conclusion. For her, Chris is bait. But The Trail have not forgotten the woman who tried to outwit them.

The Trail want Rose. The hunters want Chris’s corpse. Rose wants revenge, and Chris just wants his family back.

The hunt is on …

The description of the beautiful morning Chris Sheen was enjoying on his run does not ready you for the horrors that are ready to meet him when he returns home.

This wouldn’t be an honest review if I did not refer to a film I once saw that has a similar story line, but The Hunt is on another level. Rose is a formidable character and her story although tragic is one of strength and the way she seeks revenge on those who had hurt her and her family is remarkable. Chris soon learns he needs the same determination.

There is a lot of emotion in this book.. fear, panic. trust, and love.

I read most of it sat on the edge of seat whilst holding my breath. The Hunt is adept at ensuring the reader is part of the tale. I was both scared and excited and didn’t know where it would end.

The Hunt hits you like a boxers punch, the challenges keep on coming. There is no real twist, which makes a pleasant change but something is revealed that makes the reader gasp, at least I did.

Tim Lebbon’s novel is brilliant, it’s fast, addictive and dark. A twisted novel that will disgust, amaze and enthrall.
