Unbelievably good – this is my kind of read!
FBI rising star, criminal profiler Evelyn Baine, knows how to think like a serial killer. But she’s never chased anyone like the Bakersville Burier, who hunts young women and displays them, half-buried, deep in the woods. As the body count climbs, Evelyn’s relentless pursuit of the killer puts her career—and her life—at risk. And the evil lurking in the Burier’s mind may be more than even she can unravel.
Terror is closer than she thinks…
The Bakersville Burier knows he’s got an FBI profiler on his trail. He knows who she is and where to find her. And he’s biding his time, because he’s planned a special punishment for Evelyn. She may have tracked other killers, but he vows to make this her last chase. This time it’s her turn to be hunted!
What a fantastic FBI procedural from debut author Elizabeth Heiter. I loved this book- the pace, the characters, the plot, the twists, the action, the tension…I loved it all.
Evelyn Baine is a great female protagonist – smart, dedicated, resourceful, a wonderful FBI profiler with a personal history that steers her life – personal and professional. Heiter sets a great crime scene and the office banter and politics adds a further dimension to the narrative. I can see a TV show waiting to explode onto our screens.
Heiter gets all the essential elements of a great crime read spot on. I cannot wait for her next book…due out in the New Year, “Vanished” which follows an important story line in Hunted.
Carol – It’s very good to hear that you enjoyed this. It’s such a treat to pick up a debut and find you like it that much. Thanks for letting us know. Stay cool….
Margot – I really enjoyed this debut, I think the author has much to offer and I look forward to future works from her.
Thankfully this week the temp has dropped…and a prediction of about 28 degrees C for Christmas Day – prerfect! The BBQ is ready to cook Christmas dinner.
Thank you for the lovely review of HUNTED! So glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
It was a great read- loved every minute.
