What makes a great thriller? For me it's a fast paced story draws which me in. Something with twists and turns which I hope will finally be resolved. Add a hero who is single-mindedly trying to do what is right. Ratchet up the tension and add a love element and you have "Hunter".
The action moves along very briskly. Each chapter is meticulously plotted and provides just the right amount of background detail. In fact, the action is so well plotted this could make a very good film -think 'The Bourne Identity' crossed with 'Dexter'.
The characters are all completely believable, even the minor parts. From start to finish the dialog is smart, snappy, convincing and funny. There were times when I was laughing out loud while reading. The main character (Dylan Hunter) has a few surprises in his past and revealing these makes him even more interesting.
For a first novel it's amazingly good and I'm very pleased there will be more.
