Take a look at a dark, deadly future where the game is hunting and the results are killing - human to human - with status, money, power, and sex as the prizes. The operation runs underground and Frank Blackwell is a new recruit who is destined to change the game and turn it into legitimate popular entertainment for the masses.

My Favorite Author Falls a LITTLE Short
Any additional comments?
On it's own, this is a great book. The drawbacks can only be seen when comparing it with the rest of the "Victim" trilogy.
Although this is the 3rd, and final, installment in the series, the book takes the route of a prequel to the first two novels. It is all about how "The Hunt" came to be.
This may be interesting for some, but I much preferred reading into a world where The Hunt already existed and was in full force.
Still, if you are a fan of Robert Sheckley's, I'm positive you will enjoy this installment of the series, whether you share my views or not. It IS still a great listen and the narration is done flawlessly.
PS = This is the book in which Sheckley predicted Apple/Mac computers would eventually overtake IBM as the most prominently used platform!
8.50 / 10.0
