Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lescroat is "at his best" (Orlando Sentinel) in his latest New York Times bestseller available in this Premium Edition paperback.

Review:

"The heroes of Lescroart's popular Dismas Hardy/Abe Glitsky series (The Second Chair, etc.) have reached the point where age and professional success keep them from the gritty street-level investigations that made their adventures so good. While promising that he hasn't abandoned the duo, Lescroart keeps the action high by inaugurating a new San Francisco series, starring private investigator Wyatt Hunt and homicide detective Devin Juhle. Longtime Lescroart fans can relax: these pals are at least as interesting and enterprising as Hardy/Glitsky. Hunt's eccentric pack of friends and associates (aka the loose organization known as the Hunt Club) are investigating the murder of a federal judge and his young girlfriend. What would normally be a job for the police becomes personal after Hunt's love interest, who has connections to the judge, goes missing. Both Hunt and Juhle have appropriately troubled pasts: Hunt was forced out of a career as a child protective services officer, and Juhle is trying to live down a shoot-out that killed his last partner. As a PI, Hunt is free to detect in unorthodox and entertaining ways, while Juhle brings to bear the technical and logistic resources of official law enforcement. Most readers will agree that it's a great combination, both on the job and on the page." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Hardy/Glitsky fans and new Lescroart readers alike will most assuredly want to join the Hunt Club." Library Journal

Review:

"Inside a story as big and loose-limbed as any of Dis and Abe's cases, Lescroart has hidden an uncommonly detailed story of his hero's origins and a much smaller case of double murder." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Wyatt Hunt is a self-employed P.I., working low-profile surveillance and insurance fraud cases. When a federal judge is found murdered in Pacific Heights, Hunt enlists his confederation of friends, stringers, and associates — the Hunt Club — to help bring the murderer to justice.

Synopsis:

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…

Synopsis:

At first, The Hunt Club had a membership of one: private investigator Wyatt Hunt. Since then, others have joined with a common interest in obtaining justice. One member, inspector Devin Juhle, has just caught a major case: the shooting of a sixty-three-year old federal judge and his twentysomething mistress...

While Juhle works, Hunt plays, hooking up with TV star and legal analyst Andrea Parisi. But before Hunt knows it, Juhle's case will be of great interest to the members of The Hunt Club. Especially to Hunt himself-as Andrea's card is found in the wallet of one of the victims.

Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in again. Any mystery reader might get caught by surprise (and forgive themselves) for not catching on to the true killer(s) in this thriller by Lescroart. The private investigator gets roped into solving a murder that noone thinks he will solve because of the many undercurrents and counter-activities, but also because the P.I. is a small time surveillance hack. Somehow (in spite of misdirection) the self employed P.I stops being deterred. The ending is a gem and the book kept my unflagging interest.
