A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel… Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff’s riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.”
It took me a while to make my peace with this book, it had been sitting in my audible library barely started for ages. I have no excuse for this other than I became so used to listening to Scottish crime that going back to American crime I struggled. But I am so glad I saw it through to the end.
I found the story gritty, mysterious, dark and enthralling at different points and sometimes all at the same time.
I loved FBI Agent Roarke, he is such a believable character trying to save the innocent people round him, while at the same time trying to save himself from his personal demons, just shows you are never far away from your past.
I also really enjoyed how parts of the story were told but you were never really told who the people were or their story, so I was left the space to use my imagination, I always enjoy this.
The idea of hiding in plain sight played a big part and really worked well. I felt for the killer as they did believe in what they were doing.
The narrator was R.C Bray, his voice worked for the gritty style of this story.
In the end I was shown there is good in American crime Thrillers, I will definitely be investing in the rest of the series in the coming new year.

One thought on “Huntress Moon – Alexandra Sokoloff”
I just listened to another one of the books in this series (when I got it I didn’t know it was part of a bigger series). I enjoyed it and it also messed with my head.
