FBI Special Agent Roarke finds himself tracking a female serial killer in Huntress Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff.
Roarke is a great character who did time in the FBI Behavioural Analysis Unit (Criminal Minds anyone? Yes please!) but it's his prey who really steals the show.
The villainous female character is the star of the book, and it's her behaviour and first person narrative that really drive the reader.
The entire time I wanted to know what she was doing, why she was doing it and what she was going to do next. And boy, can she kick some ass!
The writing creates suspense and tension and Huntress Moon is a great crime-thriller. It's the first in the Huntress series, with Blood Moon next, followed by Cold Moon.
I've also heard on the grapevine that this series might be coming to TV in the US, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for that.
My rating = ****
Thanks to Carol at Reading, Writing and Riesling for the recommendation, she gave it 10 stars so how could I resist?
