Compelling and addictive really don’t do The Hunt by Tim Lebbon justice and while the subject matter of the book, humans hunting other humans for sport, is pretty distasteful I challenge anyone to not romp through the book desperate to find out more. Chris returns from a morning run to find his house empty apart from a stranger saying he has 50 minutes to get ready. Friends won’t answer the phone and after dialing 9...9... he is confronted with a video link of his wife and daughters being held hostage. He's told to run. If he's caught and killed, his family go free. If he escapes, they die. Then he meets Rose who is the only person to escape the hunt … but she has paid a terrible price. Breathlessly exciting and over too quickly!

If you like Tim Lebbon you might also like to read books by Brian Keene, Clive Barker and James Herbert.

Synopsis

The Hunt by Tim Lebbon

Rose is the one that got away. She was the prey in a human trophy hunt organised by an elite secret organisation for super-rich clients seeking a unique thrill. She paid a terrible price. Every moment since she has been planning her revenge ...And now her day has come. Chris returns from his morning run to find his wife and children missing and a stranger in his kitchen. He's told to run. If he's caught and killed, his family go free. If he escapes, they die. Rose is the only one who can help him, but Rose only has her sights on one conclusion. For her, Chris is bait. But The Trail have not forgotten the woman who tried to outwit them. The Trail want Rose. The hunters want Chris's corpse. Rose wants revenge, and Christ just wants his family back. The hunt is on ...
