Publisher's Summary

The books that inspired the SyFy series Hunters...
A young wife disappears in the night, never to be seen again. There is no evidence of kidnapping - in fact, everything indicates that she left on purpose. Her husband, a brilliant police detective, cannot believe this - but he also can't find her.
Flynn Carroll’s lost love becomes his obsession. He begins amassing a file of similar cases nationwide. His conclusion is unavoidable: somebody is taking people and making it look like they walked out on their own. As Flynn’s case files grow, his work comes to the attention of Special Agent Diana Glass, a member of the most secret police unit on the planet. This police force seeks the most brilliant and lethal criminals who have ever walked free - thieves and murderers from another world.
Without fully understanding what Glass and her team are doing, Flynn steps into a hidden world of extraordinary challenge and lethal danger. The job is the most difficult police assignment ever known to man, but the idea is the same - find the bad guys. Stop them.

"Even those who usually stay away from alien fantasy will be drawn to this reality-based novel. The characters are complex and surprising at various points in the novel.... [Strieber's] excellent storytelling will keep readers guessing until the very end." (RT Book Reviews)

Don't Know What To Think

Would you try another book from Whitley Strieber and/or Christian Rummel?

Probably not Strieber. The characters were so uneven the story is hard to follow. While characters being predictable isn't always a good thing, there must be story driven reasons for their actions. Events happen without narration, keeping the reader questioning how the story progresses. Think of this book as a very bad mix of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The X-Files, and somehow The Island of Doctor Moreau. It starts off with a good premise but quickly turns into a poorly rendered plot with holes so large you could fill an entire novel trying to explain them away.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure.


Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rummel is good at what he does. This book is on par with his others.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The best thing I can say is it had potential.


Any additional comments?

No.
