A lightning-fast police procedural from an up-and-coming talent, The Hunted introduces a homicide detective who gets the shock of his life while tracking a most ingenious serial killer.
From a writer whose previous works Robert B. Parker declared “compelling... swiftly told,” and James W. Hall called “top-notch,” comes this first electrifying thriller featuring New York City homicide detective Frank Russo.
The Hunted begins with a little girl witnessing a horrible crime. Due to the child’s testimony, the murderer is convicted. Eighteen years later the killer is released on parole, and his mission is to track down the now-grown woman he feels betrayed him. A deranged dance of masked identities ensues, and it is up to newly single homicide detective Frank Russo to unravel the case.
