Hunting Season doesn't take long to reel you in and then you need your seat belt on. It's filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very end. The contrast of Southwest Virginia characters with the intrigue of secret government agencies make for a realistic story. The narrator handled the accents and variety of characters masterfully.
I'm on part two and considering abandoning this book, which I rarely do. By now, I should be interested in the plot and characters, but I'm not. The narrator's voice for the main female FBI agent character is absurd. There has been little action and a lot of tedious description. I'm disappointed and bored. I would like to say something positive about this book, but the only thing I can think of is that it's easy to fall asleep to.
I would have given this 6 Stars if possible. For those that like Jack Reacher, Matt Rapp and Harry Bosch, the hero in this book makes them look like cub scouts. The plot is extremely well-developed, grabs you from the start and keeps your interest throughout the book. The reader, Dick Hill is at his best! You will spend many minutes up late at night or in the parking garage listening for the next twist.
I had not known this author before, but am intrigued now.
While I do not regret the "read", it started strong but seemed to lose steam and lose me by the end. I of course LOVED Dick Hill as always though!
Unfamiliar with Deutermann, I was trying someone new because Nelson DeMille and Greg Iles don't write fast enough. What a surprise! A wonderful expose of the stupidity of bureaucratic in-fighting and turf-wars among agencies that are supposed to be on the same side, disguised as a fascinating but believable thriller. Kreiss is an intriguing hero that I hope we will see more of. And Dick Hill proves once again why he is one of the best narrators ever. It was his inclusion on this audio program that convinced me to take a chance on an unknown (to me) author.
Only 4 stars rather than five because, as some of the other reviewers have remarked, Hill is less convincing with female voices.
I thought this book was great! Loved it right from the beginning. suprised that the rating wasn't over 4.0. Loved the storyline & the characters. Loads of excitement right from the start!
This was my first P.T. Deutermann book. I found myself looking up his bibliography before I was too far into the story. Excellent writer. Well paced suspenseful story. I'm always surprised when I read reviewers not liking Dick Hill. I find him to be one of the best at what he does. His voice brings me into lesser stories---so when it is as well written as this one---I was glad I'd made the purchase.
I just discovered PT Deutermann and am so glad I did. This book was a thriller and always suspenseful. Although the book was lenghty, it held the reader's attention. I just couldn't put it down. Dick Hill, as always, was a superb narrator. I'm definetly going to read more novels from this author.
I have not finished this book, and I may not. The plot is arresting and the narrator is popular, I know. But his depiction of women is really abysmal. One of the main characters, whom the author clearly intends to be a competent and bold woman, is portrayed as speaking like a little girl, in a falsetto voice. Hill tries to differentiate among the other characters, but does not succeed well. I am about to give up on it, as I simply find this too distracting. Perhaps I'll purchase the book in print, and finish it that way, because I really like the story and the author.
I only got 2/3rds of the way through. The plot seemed to drag on without point putting characters in "one more" impossible bind so they could escape in an impossible way. It was also annoying for the author to keep trashing former President Clinton without point. "We drove past the park where Vince Foster supposedly committed suicide." Sheesh. Doesn't 8 years of peace and prosperity look good about now?
