The Hunt by Allison Brennan

Title: The Hunt

Author: Allison Brennan

Genre: Mystery

Summary: A killer has been on the loose in Bozeman, Montana, since Miranda was in college. After failing to be admitted to the FBI academy, she has devoted her career to the Search and Rescue team that continues to find the Bozeman Butcher's victims.

The Take-Away: Miranda was my favorite herione, even after reading the third novel. She refused to give-up when the Butcher had her, she refused to give-up when a college girl was missing. She refused to give-up and let the hunter win.

The title's strength is more evident in this novel. Every chapter reminded me that the killer was in charge, that he was hunting. I didn't get that sense from The Prey.

I really appreciated the setting for this title as well. Not many settings are so far off the beaten path. I don't recall ever reading one set in Montana, or any of the states that surround it.

Recommendation: Get it. Brennan's skill improved and the characters have more depth.
