Description

Get hooked on Heck: the maverick detective who knows no boundaries. A grisly whodunit you won't be able to put down, perfect for fans of Stuart MacBride and TV series Luther.

Heck needs to watch his back. Because someone's watching him... Across the south of England, a series of bizarre but fatal accidents are taking place. So when a local businessman survives a near-drowning but is found burnt alive in his car just weeks later, DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg is brought in to investigate.

Soon it appears that other recent deaths might be linked: two thieves that were bitten to death by poisonous spiders, and a driver impaled through the chest with scaffolding.

Accidents do happen but as the body count rises it's clear that something far more sinister is at play, and it's coming for Heck too....

Wow top Marks!

I really enjoyed this book in fact I could not put it down , I had to keep listening to see what happened next . This is book 5 in the series and I had not listened or read any Paul finch before . However it was fine coming in to the middle of the series as he is away from his home beat and is working with a new side kick . My only regret is that now I want to read the whole series and this is the only one audible US has. The murders were a bit gruesome but the " whodunnit " kept you guessing

Murder. What a crack up!

If you read as many murder/detective books as I do, you know the drill . . . authors, presumably in an effort to forge a reputation, seem to devise more and more gruesome murders (mostly of young women) related in great and gory detail. Which I like. But this one was different. Yes, the murders were bizarre and unpleasant but also . . . funny. Which is central to the plot.
I thought this book was imaginative and had a broad range of characters. Our man, Heck, doesn't seem fully fleshed but then again, this is the first book I've read in the series. Won't be the last, though.

Great start to a new series

I liked the characters Heck's my kind of guy
Story was creative, some good twists and turns and sufficiently action packed with some well detailed gristle

a superior read

More serious than Stuart McBride, but a superior (and mysterious) mystery. Well performed by PT, including female characters. Original, engaging, and edgy. Fun. Not for the faint of heart.

What disappointed you about Hunted?

I would like to think the book was a good book but I will never know.

What didn’t you like about Paul Thornley’s performance?

The style of the person reading the book left me very unhappy. I found his style made it work just to follow the story line.

Any additional comments?

I almost returned the book. I have purchased well over 200 books and only returned one book. (A book I bought by mistake) This is the first time that I actually thought about returning a book based on merit. I didn't do so because I didn't want to black mark the author who I know to be very good.. (Others may enjoy this readers style even though I do not.)

Solid story idea, poor characterisation

Solid story idea undermined by poor characterisation, especially of the female characters. Would perhaps have tolerated this in first of a series by new author, but not so much in fifth book in a series. However, story idea was sufficient to carry me through to the end of the book.
