Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An unsavory bunch indeed, the members of The Hunting Club are five former college chums who take a regular boys' night out to indulge in sophomoric antics. The quintet salutes the pending wedding of the Club's last bachelor by hiring a topless dancer whose favors they will share during a night of carousing. John Payne, the last in line, passes out and wakes up next to Yolanda's cold corpse. Incited to a cover-up by group leader Glen Morrow, the guys pack Yolanda's bags and drop them with her body into the Atlantic from Payne's traffic helicopter, then go home to their suburban wives. They seem to be off the hook until Candy, a dancer from Yolanda's club, figures out what happened and threatens blackmail. Morrow and Payne deal with Candy and her pimp, only to discover that another dancer, Susan, knows all. Payne, who seemed unfazed by the deaths of a Puerto Rican and a black woman, suddenly experiences qualms when the proposed victim is a white college student and daughter of an ex-cop; he takes off with Susan, pursued by Morrow in a convenient second helicopter. Although Sandom's newest thriller (after Gospel Truths ) is reasonably effective on the page, the chase scenes, predictable showdown and 30-something angst will work better on screen. Film rights to Warner Brothers. ( July )
Library Journal
Sandom's second suspense novel, after the intriguing Gospel Truths ( LJ 1/92) takes the hackneyed subjects of male bonding and identity problems and attempts to give them a new spin. Five former college friends, all now successful yuppies, hold a bachelor party for one of the group. Chemical excess leads four of them into trouble--a young prostitute ends up dead, and the four close ranks to protect the ostensible killer. Soon relationships disintegrate, and the conspiracy of silence is threatened from both inside and out. The pace is fast, and the story suspenseful, though seasoned mystery readers may well anticipate several of the plot twists. Not an essential purchase for mystery collections, but appropriate where such thrillers are popular.-- Dean James, Houston Acad. of Medicine/Texas Medical Ctr. Lib.
Mary Frances Wilkens
What harm can befall a group of old friends who just want to live it up a night to celebrate (or mourn) an upcoming wedding? Insecure John Payne, one of the five members of the Hunting Club, doesn't think much about letting go at his friend's bachelor party until the next day, when he finds himself face to face with the reality that he has committed a despicable crime. Anxieties mount as Payne learns that he doesn't know whom to trust, that his once-loyal brigade of brotherhood is no more than a group of favor-exchanging, power-hungry, middle-age men. At the center of Payne's vulnerability is Glen Morrow, the ever-confident and successful leader of the pack. Morrow, who had been Payne's confidante and trusted friend for so many years, exposes his true colors in the thrilling climax of the tale. Sandom, author of "Gospel Truths" , writes with stunning elegance and nearly poetic beauty, lending style even to these overindulgent, overachieving relics from the 1980s. A sure hit with any suspense reader. Film rights already sold to Warner Brothers.
