Blog Tour – ‘Hunted’ by Paul Finch

Blog Tour Poster

‘Hunted’ is Paul Finch’s latest crime thriller in the DS Heckenburg series.  Already out as an eBook, it has now been published in paperback by Avon.  As part of the blog tour I am reviewing this book along with a competition.

LightBrigade PR organised a very clever and rather creepy mailer for book bloggers taking part in this tour.  You come home one day to find that a black box has been delivered.  Wondering if it’s some nice surprise you open it to find two masks with no indication of where they’ve come from.  Scary hey!  A few of us had this special delivery.

A short while later I received more post.

I am scared of spiders so I was glad that these weren’t alive.  Luckily my proof copy of ‘Hunted’ was included in the package.  I was by now really intrigued and couldn’t wait to find out where these items fitted in the story.

A series of freaky and tragic accidents have been taking place.  A man is burnt alive in his car, whilst another is impaled through his chest with scaffolding.  These things happen right?

When DS Mark “Heck” Heckenburg is called in to investigate one of these accidents he has his suspicions.  More deaths confirm what he has been thinking.  There is definitely something sinister at play and even Heck isn’t safe.  Will he solve the case before it’s too late?

I absolutely loved ‘Hunted’.  Hooked from the very first page, this book didn’t disappoint at all.  It was fast-paced with lots of thrills and shocks along the way and it kept me guessing.  Until now I had never actually read any of Paul Finch’s books, but I was so impressed by his writing.  The man is a true genius.  I really liked DS Heckenburg and I hope that there will be more adventures with him.

One thing that I really didn’t expect was for some of the locations mentioned in the story to be near to where I live.  It was really quite bizarre and felt like a dream.

If you are a fan of crime fiction I really recommend you get yourself a copy of ‘Hunted’.  You don’t have to have read the previous books in the series as they are standalone novels.

I give this book 5 out of 5.
