    Hunt Club

    Was not impressed with this book. Story ok but drags "too many words" with not much to say. Characters were weak and uninteresting. Ok read if you have nothing else laying around.

    Read A Lot Of Lescroart

    And I will read more too. But this is his not-best book. The beginning quarter, and towards the end picked up. But in the middle there was a long, very long stretch where all the characters did was visit each other and talk about what was going on, covering the same ground over and over. Lag is the word. Most Lescroart books are snappingly good, this is the exception. I do like the characters though, and will be glad to read about them again in a new book.

    A Page Turner

    Is this book a classic that literature students will be reading 10 years from now? No. Is this a book you will easily put down once you are into it? No. There are books you read for cerebral inspiration, and then there are books you read for pure entertainment. The Hunt Club is pure entertainment. It is a page turner. I agree that the ending is a bit disappointing, not because of who the culprit turned out to be but because of the improbable way this carefully crafted story was rushed to an ending. Nevertheless, I feel this book is a very good read.

    The Hunt Club

    I liked this book in its entirety up untill the ending. The ending which was only five pages, left me very disappointed and rather angry. Don't get me wrong, this was a great book, a great suspenful story, but the ending made me want to throw the book up against a wall.

    COMPELLING READING OF A STANDOUT THRILLER

    With some 16 bestsellers to his credit John Lescroart well knows how to plot a thriller. With a multitude of TV and film appearances behind him Guerin Barry certainly knows how to narrate a suspense driven story, and he does it to a T with The Hunt Club. Audiobook fans can sit back, press a button, and know they're going to meet two exciting new characters, sharply drawn by Lescroart and compellingly read by Barry. As is often the case with this author, the opener is a grabber. A federal judge is found murdered - shot to death in his home. However, His Honor didn't die alone - also found is the body of his young mistress. San Francisco can't get enough of reading about this case. Initially, inspector Devin Juhle chalks the killings up to the revenge of a betrayed wife. Of course, it's not as easy as that. Seems there are some others who would also like the judge to breathe his last. Among them is a lovely attorney, Andrea Parsi, who has recently found her moments of fame as a commentator on Trial TV. What's a good story without romance? Wyatt Hunt, Juhle's pal, is smitten with Andrea and doesn't like it one bit when she turns up missing. Never one to pay too much attention to the rules, Hunt rounds up some of his cronies to help him find the missing woman. Little did they know what they'd find as they dug deeper into her disappearance. Surprises and suspense abound with The Hunt Club. - Gail Cooke

    more from this reviewer

    strong thriller

    In San Francisco, someone murders U.S. Federal Judge George Palmer and his much younger mistress Staci Rosalier in his high income home in the Pacific Heights neighborhood. His wife Jeannette found the bodies and called 911. SFPD Homicide Inspector Devin Juhle immediately assumes that the spouse killed her husband and his lover for cheating on her especially in their home. --- Helped by Dismas Hardy, Wyatt Hunt became a private investigator and opened up the Hunt Club four years ago. He sometimes serendipitously works with his police friend Devin as he is doing right now on the judicial homicide. Hunt uncovers some powerful enemies that Palmer made over the years however, just after finding his girlfriend TV reporter Andrea Parisis has a connection too, she vanishes, making the investigation personal. --- Much of what makes Dismas Hardy and Abe Glitsky so popular is found in the characteristics of the key players of this novel. THE HUNT CLUB starts a fresh series that is less legal and more investigative in nature. Devin and Wyatt make a fine team as the former brings police technology and know how to a case while the latter can go under the law to make other types of inquiries. The support cast including Devin¿s deceased partner (died in the line of duty) add understanding to the two sleuths as much as moving the exciting story line forward. Fans of Hardy-Glitsky will toast the beginning of a long friendship. --- Harriet Klausner
