#BlogTour: Hunter's Revenge by Val Penny @valeriepenny @crookedcatbooks @rararesources #Hunter'sRevenge

Hunter's Revenge is published by Crooked Cat Books on 9th September 2018. My thanks to the author and publisher for the review copy and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me on to the blog tour. 


Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until his friend's death is revenged.

DI Hunter Wilson is called to the scene of a murder. He is shocked to find the victim is his friend and colleague, George Reinbold. Who would want to harm the quiet, old man? Why was a book worth £23,000 delivered to him that morning? Why is the security in George's home so intense? Hunter must investigate his friend's past as well as the present to identify the killer and identify George's killer. Hunter also finds a new supply of cocaine from Peru flooding HMP Edinburgh and the city. The courier leads Hunter to the criminal gang but Hunter requires the help of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable, Sir Peter Myerscough and local gangster Ian Thomson to make his case. Hunter's perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this taught crime thriller.

My Thoughts:

Hunter's Revenge is the second in The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries series. Although not essential I feel that it might have been beneficial to have read the first book as there is some continuation of characters etc. 

Hunter's Revenge opens brilliantly and the author managed to suck me in to the story right away, there are twists and turns aplenty and I was second guessing the plot throughout. 

The author has managed to create quite a cast of characters, none of whom were superfluous. DI Hunter Wilson is a great character, as he investigates why his friend George Reinbold was murdered and as the case takes on multiple strands we get to find out more about DI Hunter Wilson. 

This isn't the fasted paced crime novel I have ever read but the plot was excellent and came together very well. The case was enough to hold my interest and kept me turning the pages to find out the final answers.

I would certainly be tempted to read more from this series in the future.
