Two Out Of Three

This week I read three books, starting with John Burdett's brilliant Godfather of Kathmandu, then Robert Crais' very satisfying The First Rule. I was sure that I was going to be three out of three since I liked Lescroart's last book so much.

This week I read three books, starting with John Burdett's brilliant Godfather of Kathmandu, then Robert Crais' very satisfying The First Rule. I was sure that I was going to be three out of three since I liked Lescroart's last book so much.
But, it was not to be. Treasure Hunt is a dud in comparison to the other two. It's a dud in comparison to Lescroart's last novel, which I gave five stars. His characters are uninteresting and thinly developed. I wouldn't go so far as to say he phoned it in, but it could have been so much more. The author discusses the abuse of community service organizations, and that could have made a great story if he took it further. But instead he chose a rather pedestrian plot that just bored me.
Even the Hunt Club members, who are supposed to be the good guys, showed a surprisingly short level of integrity and common sense. Try harder next time, Mr.Lescroart.

    he latest Wyatt Hunt private investigator case is a fast-paced thriller

    In San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt is feeling the economic down turn as clients are almost nonexistent. His receptionist Tamara Dade quit leaving Wyatt with one employee her brother, Mickey, who is bored and wants field work, but no clients hire the firm.

    Mickey has his chance when he finds the body of activist Dominic Como, who was on the board of over a dozen charities. He persuades his boss to let him investigate, which should bring in fame and money. Several suspects surface with strong motives from money to jealousy, but the prime person that Hunt and Dade focus on is Alicia Thorpe; and not just because she is beautiful, but due to her acting as if she is concealing something from the cops and the sleuths.

    The latest Wyatt Hunt private investigator case (see The Hunt Club) is a fast-paced thriller that seems to go nowhere until a final gala with cops and suspects so that the hero can pull a dead rabbit out of the hat. Still Treasure Hunt is fun to follow as Wyatt and Mickey work the city streets to solve the case of the charity mogul murder.
