James Bond meets Men in Black...,
This review is from: Hunter's Moon (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Don't really know where to start with this book. At times gruesome, at other times incredibly childish..... Imagine you are a 13 year old boy, interested in James Bond and the Ghostbusters, mixed in with a juvenile fascination with sex. You sit down and decide to write a book, giving yourself only a few days to do so. I think your finished product would be very similar to Hunters Moon.
The plot centres around an unnamed assassin but we can call him Jack) working for an undercover MI5 type institution. However, there is a difference. He is highly skilled in the black arts/magic/witchcraft etc
Jack is assigned to a case to stop a terrorist organisation run by lesbians with the ability to alter mind through using sexual tension. Along the way he enlist the help of various ex colleagues, including a retired man in black and the spirit of his dead friend.
The book is written in the first person and in a style that would not be suited to everyone. Often quite abruptly written and almost with an underdeveloped feel to the plot.
I can't say it was a bad or a good read. The pages seemed to by quickly enough, although at times I did feel like throwing it out the window.
