Product description

About the Author

For seven years Sam Hilliard served as the IT Director at an all-girls boarding school, where he learned world class drama first hand, as well as the proper role of martial arts in secondary education, and the need for a very strong deadbolt on his office door.
He currently lives at an undisclosed location in New Jersey with his wife and Cat Army. On long dark nights, he works on the sequel to The Last Track, which despite allowing the manuscript sufficient breathing space at times, is not, in fact, writing itself. He also works at Princeton University.

I like books that are a bit different from the usual "police interview lots of suspects ...." ones.

Mike is an interesting character. He is an expert tracker on holiday at a Dude Ranch with his 8 year old
son and his ex-wife, Jessica, who is a journalist. The police have found a murdered man, and a boy
has disappeared from the Ranch, so they ask Mike to track him.

The police don't know the boy (Sean) witnessed the murder and became lost whilst running from the killer.
We know who the killer is (Crotty). He is an FBI -type - though how his colleagues didn't suspect him of being a
crook with the amount of time he spent on his criminal business is a mystery!
Crotty has a mystery partner and between them, they threaten Mike's family if he doesn't let them know
when he finds Sean. Jessica refuses Mike's requests to flee the Ranch - even when she and her son are put in
danger (strange mother!). I felt the book dragged a little in the second half and I would have liked more
details about Mike's tracking ability.

There were a few twists towards the end - one I guessed and one was a surprise. Overall, an enjoyable read
and I give this book 3.5 stars.

Sam Hilliard has created a great character in Mike Brody and placed him in an exciting, tense and engaging story. A runaway boy witnesses a murder and disappears into a dense wood. Mike Brody, a psychic tracker (which is not overdone), is enlisted to help find the boy with the help of a local copper. There are some that want the boy to stay lost. The scene is set for an exciting chase and mystery and Sam Hilliard does not disappoint. Throw in some colourful characters, threats and a merciless villain and the stage is set.

The plot is well thought out and has a lot of twists and turns, all of which are believable and make for a story where the reader is constantly trying to second guess what is happening. The sub plots blend neatly into the main story, adding interest without getting in the way. Where this novel excels is in the great characters that populate it. Even the minor characters are fleshed out and feel real without the annoying habit of some authors to provide copious back story.

The writing is good and engaging, though one more edit would have seen the very few (count on one hand) typos and confusing sentences smoothed out.

My one (tiny) gripe is the ending. The main story ends one chapter in from the end of the book. That ending is tense and exciting and all essential elements are there. The last chapter is a mop up, filling in the missing pieces, providing the end to some story arcs and with a couple of interesting reveals (which I didn't guess). My problem with this is that I want a second Mike Brody novel and I think the author missed a trick by not leaving some of these threads unanswered.

Its been five years since this book hit the virtual book shelf - time for a sequel Sam.

Grabs you from the start and builds into a reasonable story . With enough twists and turns to remain plausible, it manages to bring up the occasional surprise.

I had a hard time reading this book, starting right from the beginning which I found very confusing. I didn't understand that there was two different people that were being talked about. These sections were separated by times which I skipped over. Turns out that I shouldn't have done that. I had to go back to figure out if the guy was walking or driving until I realized the boy was walking and the man was driving.

I did like Mike Brody and the part of the story about him tracking Sean but didn't like the part with Crotty, the Partner and the company. I found it boring and confusing so I skimmed most of this part. I didn't like not knowing what the business was.

I looked at some of the other reviews and I am so glad that many people enjoyed this book since I know that authors put so much into writing them. Just because this book wasn't for me doesn't mean you wouldn't enjoy it.
