‘Every story one day comes to an end.’
As roommates, they met for the first time in college. Two of the brightest minds ever to graduate from Stamford Psychology University.
As adversaries, they met again in Quantico, Virginia. Robert Hunter had become the head of the LAPD’s Ultra Violent Crimes Unit. Lucien Folter had become the most prolific and dangerous serial killer the FBI had ever encountered.
Now, after spending three and a half years locked in solitary confinement, Lucien has finally managed to break free. And he’s angry.
For the past three and a half years, Lucien has thought of nothing else but vengeance.
The person responsible for locking him away has to pay, he has to suffer.
That person … is Robert Hunter.
And now it is finally time to execute the plan.
Many thanks to the author, publisher and blog tour organiser for the ARC in return for an honest review.
I used to be a big fan of these action thrillers, where the hero and villian are equally matched and it’s a battle to the end for who will survive. I’m glad to say after reading Hunting Evil I still am. It’s been a while since I read this type of book and I worried my reading tastes had changed, but I really enjoyed it.
Because I loved the hero, albeit in my view a reluctant one, Hunter is perfect hero material. Smart, not your cliche all muscle no brain, but a man with a keen intelligence and a deep rooted belief in justice. I loved that he had a vulnerable side to, that he respected his enemy enough, to be scared of the consequences of failing to return him to justice.
There there is Lucien. Evil, a match in every other way for Hunter, in that he is intelligent, but that’s where I’m the similarities end. He made me feel very uncomfortable, scared me and that’s what I look for in a villian, I hated him so much I read on desperate to know he would be punished.
Then there is the story. It was thrilling, had plenty of action and kept me turning those pages at a rate of knots. It ticked all the boxes and made think I should start reading a few more action thrillers.
About the author
I was born in Brasilia, Brazil where I spent my childhood and teenage years. After graduating from high school, I moved to the USA where I studied psychology with specialization in criminal behaviour. During my University years I held a variety of odd jobs, ranging from flipping burgers to being part of an all male exotic dancing group.
I worked as a criminal psychologist for several years, during which I interviewed and worked on over one hundred cases involving serial killers, murderers and serious offenders, before moving to Los Angeles, where I swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas and an electric guitar. After a spell playing for several well known glam rock bands, I decided to try my luck in London, where I was fortunate enough to have played for a number of famous artists. I toured the world several times as a professional musician.
A few years ago I gave it all up to become a full time writer.
