Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With Wounded Prey, Sean Lynch delivers a hell for leather, wild ride of a debut with the "been there done that" authenticity that lifts it above other thrillers. I just added Farrell and Kearns to my short-list of favourite characters, and Vernon Slocum to my worst nightmares! Think First Blood meets No Country For Old Men."
-Matt Hilton, author of the Joe Hunter series

"Disturbing and unsettling topic; but deeply-characterized, good understanding of psychology, well-written."
-Mallory Heart Reviews

"While redemption is the biggest theme of the novel, the author also deftly explores the inner workings of a very, very sick mind, and what made Slocum what he is. Be prepared to go to the darkside in this harrowing, fast-paced thriller."
-Kristin, CriminalElement

    Please write more!!

    Absolutely loved this book!! Just couldn't put it down, gritty, graphic, grown-up "who done it" even tho you know the killer right off the bat, it's the pursuit that keeps the pages turning-----well-developed characters that grab you and draw you right into the story!! As you can no doubt tell, I really enjoyed this book!

    Wow! I suppose I should be angry at Mr. Lynch for all of the lost sleep as I got sucked deeper and deeper into this book, far into the night. Or, more properly, my boss should. Heh! ;D

    Simply put, this is one hell of a book - a thriller that's done exactly right, from the likeable good guys and nightmarish bad guys to the jaw-dropping conclusion. Mr. Lynch is a top notch writer who makes you really feel for his characters; he breathes personality and humor into them so that you're really draw into the story - next thing you know, you're all caught up and can't put this down. And what a story it is! For those who rate it one-star as a forum to complain about its gruesomeness, c'mon - it's called "Wounded Prey". Stories with titles like this are either a thriller with a few gross spots (this one), or a Woody Allen yuppie whine-fest (in which case it's all gonna be gross). Just to clarify: No whiners here; just an excellent writer who has gained an avid fan here - and I'm a pretty hard sell. Can't wait for the next book.... well done, Sean Lynch! Five well-deserved stars for you.

    Mystery worth reading....

    Great read, thrilling and tense from beginning to end. This is what a great mystery read is all about. Nothing left to the imagination. Just in your face, gut wrenching reading from page one. Read this in record time. Just couldn't put it down. If your thinking about it, just do it.... and read it. You won't be disapointed.

    Awesome book! I had dreams about it , it was graphic. I loved how the author switched each chapter to what each character was getting themselves into. Recommend for the people who can handle gore and disturbing content

    Great Read

    Pretty awesome book. A page turner indeed. The narration was great. The story was told through each significant character's eyes giving the reader the ability to see every angle of the story. Very graphic, very detailed, really disgusting. Genius!

    Bloody, brutal, and on rhe edge of your seat reading

    This is very heavy reading. Not for the faint of heart. However, I found it to be very exciting.

    The story begins in rural Iowa, and covers much of state. Since we live here, that made it more interesting. The writer is from here, so he knows the area well.

    Fasten your seat belt and hang on for this one.

    Good

    I enjoyed this and would like to see more of these characters. Perhaps a little too graphic, but the actiono is brisk and the plot engrossing.

    Wow!!!!

    So amazing!!! Loved every minute of it. I didn't want to sleep, eat, or go to work because that would mean I would have to close my book. I haven't read a mystery/thriller in a while that got my attention like this one. I beg the author for more books!!

    Outstanding Adventure Story, but gruesome

    This is a book that is very hard to put down, with something happening on every page, with great characters, and a villain as bad as any you have ever heard of. But, if very graphic descriptions of violence and mayhem bother you, it isn't for you. The violence is essential to the story, so it isn't gratuitous. But, it is vivid.

    Very detailed book....the author knows his stuff, seemingly from personal experience. Was a gruesome and intense read, but well worth it.

    Riveting from the first page!

    This was an enjoyable book. It kept my interest from the first page to the end. It has a little of everything - mystery, suspense, really, really bad guy. A little too much violence.
