‘Hunter’s Run is a good old-fashioned adventure story in which one man is pitted against the law, the elements, terrifying creatures, and himself … gripping and enjoyable’ Lisa Tuttle, The Times

In a fight outside a bar Ramon Espejo kills a man. Next day, all hell breaks loose. The dead man was a big shot, a diplomat on a mission to the out-world of Sao Paulo. Ramon goes on the run, heading north toward unexplored territory, land so far only glimpsed from orbit during the first colony surveys.
Ramon has gone from being nothing in the hills of Mexico to being nothing on Sao Paulo. He makes a bare living prospecting for minerals. Maybe God meant him to be poor, or he wouldn't have made him so mean. He can't even remember why he killed the European, only the drinking, and the rage that followed.
Better to be alone in the wild landscape ... off the map, beyond law and civilisation. Each trip out he's sure will be the big one that'll make him rich. This one, too.

But Ramon Espejo is about to prove what a man is capable of. Ramon is about to demonstrate what it is to be human; to be angry, intelligent and alive. And he is about to discover his function in the broad flow of the universe. And why it was he killed the diplomat in the first place ... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description
