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.

I very much agree with KenCady's review. John Lescroart's books are great...with the exception of the Wyatt Hunt series. It's difficult to believe that John Lescroart actually wrote these they are so subpar to his Dismas Hardy series. I, too, had just finished Robert Crais' excellent book The First Rule and was very much looking forward to following it with a book from another of my favorite authors: Lescroart. Treasure Hunt was a terrible disappointment. I didn't even finish it. Both of the Wyatt Hunt books are very poorly written. I won't buy another one from that series. Hopefully Lescroart has not gone the way of James Patterson.

Like all of Lescroart's books in this series, this twisted thriller will not disappoint. The author's characters are cleanly and swiftly developed in prose so strong that you can see, feel, smell and touch each of them. The book works well as a 1st-time to Lescroart read, but is even better having read the precedant works. The story line is vibrant and unique, taking interesting twists while embracing the "work" of Not-for-Profits. Treasure Hunt is a must-read. Colourful, entertaining and a page turner. Enjoy!

While not quite up to the last Dismas Hardy book, it is definitely a good read.

Not a bad book, but not one of Lescroart's best. Story line is weak.

Disappointing. This book started out nicely and then dragged on. I much prefer books by Lee Child, Stuart Woods, Sandra Brown, Linda Fairstein or Michael Connelly.

I have read several books by this author and this ranks up there with the best of them. I bought this to read on the flight from NY to San Diego and I was not disappointed. I finished it on way there.

I love this author. He has created believable characters and the San Francisco setting is always interesting. The plots are always have some twists and turns. I eagerly await the author's next effort.

Usually love his books, but the books about the Hunt characters always seem convoluted and far-fetched. Would not have bought the book if I realized this was central character.
