Overview

The Hunter (Wyatt Hunt Series #3) by John Lescroart

Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family—until he gets a chilling text message:

“How did your mother die?”

The answer is murder, and Hunt takes on a case he never knew existed, unsolved for decades. His family’s dark past unfurls in dead ends. Child Protection Services, who suspected Hunt was being neglected, is uninformed; his birth father, twice-tried but never convicted of the murder, is in hiding; Evie, his mother’s drug-addicted religious fanatic of a friend, is untraceable. And who is the texter, and how is this person connected to Hunt? Time is running out. Insisting the murderer is out there, the texter refuses to be identified. But as the case escalates, so does the threat—for the killer has a secret that will go to the grave…

I love the way that Lescroart develops Wyatt Hunt's character in this book. He makes you feel like you know him and are rooting for him as the plot develops!!!!! Wyatt opens himself up and lets you feel his frustrations and successes as the plot develops. John Lescroart keeps you involved and emotionally connected throught the entire book.

Good story, but too long and tortuous plot.

always good characters, and a puzzle to solve. One of my favorite authors

The Hunt Club, the private investigative agency in San Francisco headed by Wyatt Hunt, has been the focus of several novels prior to this one, exciting mystery-thrillers. While the present volume is both a mystery with some elements of thriller, the reader has to painstakingly plod through a lot to find them. It basically is more of an introspective look at Hunt, his birth and his development as a mature person. Hunt’s mother was murdered when he was three, his father twice tried for the deed but not convicted because of hung juries. While on trial, he let Hunt go through the system, passing through several adoptive families before hitting success with the Hunts. Then one day, now a middle-aged man, he receives a text message: “How did your mother die?,” thus setting him on a journey to rediscover his routes, with almost no memories or information to guide him. Uncovering strange and unexpected information along the way, Hunt follows a trail, often led by additional text messages, not to mention additional murders. Too often, there is much repetition, and the physical reaction by Hunt to the pressures seemed superficial, leaving one wondering if there is some basic physical ailment or just plain old anxiety affecting him. Perhaps some judicious editing, or even a rewrite, could have improved the novel, which in its present form is quite interesting but to this reader lacks the spark of the predecessors in the series. Perhaps that’s what the author strove to achieve - - who knows? With that caveat, the novel is recommended.

The best parts of Lescroart,s character driven books are the relationships the reader maintains with the characters. I was thrilled to see Wyatt Hunt return and loved the idea of delving into his past with him. The book centers around the questionable death of Wyatt's birth mother. Of course it turns out to be a murder to be solved, and of course Wyatt and his "band of merry men and women" are on the job. Enter a mysterious texter and ties to Jim Jones, and a great story unfolds. Upon following his adventures we learn more about the characters we want to share a dinner with, so all in all this was a successful venture for a top author.

Enjoyed all the John Lescroart books I've read and this one did not disappoint !!

While John Lescroart remains one of my favorite writers, this book wasw a little disappointing. I felt that someone was there with a whip telling him to get this book written. His characters still are likeable and interesting, but this was less so and I found myself getting impatient. Waiting for the next one.

Always enjoy John Lescroart's books and this is no exception. It's not the type of story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, but it's worth reading.
