Hunter's Chase by Val Penny

Happy Publication Day to Val Penny, the author of Hunter's Chase!!

I've talked about this book before, but it is with great delight that Val Penny has accepted a ten-book deal with Spellbound Books, starting with the first in her Edinburgh Crime series, Hunter's Chase.

Hunter's Chase

Hunter by name – Hunter by nature: DI Hunter Wilson will not rest until Edinburgh is safe.

Detective Inspector Hunter Wilson knows there is a new supply of cocaine flooding his city, and he needs to find the source, but his attention is transferred to murder when a corpse is discovered in the grounds of a golf course.

Shortly after the post-mortem, Hunter witnesses a second murder, but that is not the end of the slaughter. With a young woman's life also hanging in the balance, the last thing Hunter needs is a new man on his team: Detective Constable Tim Myerscough, the son of his nemesis, the former Chief Constable Sir Peter Myerscough.

Hunter's perseverance and patience are put to the test time after time in this first novel in the DI Wilson Crime series.

For me, this book read like a CSI show. Realistic, lovable (and dislikable) characters, great weaving of family/friend dynamics as a crime mystery unfolds. Real-life stuff. The witty banter added an extra touch. Loved it and am excited there are more in the series!! I give this read 5-stars and recommend it to anyone who enjoys a page-turning read about crime investigation full of twists and drama.

Find it on Amazon.
