When 21-year-old NYU student Jeff Converse is convicted of a brutal rape and murder that he did not commit, his nightmare has just begun. Jeff is just the latest innocent man to be made a target of the society that controls the underground hell called the Manhattan Hunt Club.
A prestigious club near Wall Street, its membership includes many of the city's political and financial elite. Bored with more conventional sport, some of the MHC members can't resist secretly indulging their desire to hunt the most dangerous game in the world: humans.

The storyline is interesting and well written, although I admit I am only halfway finished. I don't know if I will finish it. The problem is the Reader.
His regular reading voice is fine. But his character's voices are horrible. Very cartoonish, they almost all sound like Elmer Fudd.
If the Reader is doing something that takes your attention off of the story, he is failing to do his job.
It was a fantastic story. I read it as a kid and when I saw it on here, I couldn't wait to read it again!
Meeting the homeless man that was shy and stole purses.
Almost anyone! While his narration was fantastic, his imitation of voices were TERRIBLE! It almost turned me off to the book. Some whined, women talked like men...it was horrible. But his narration otherwise was good. There was a lot of dialog in the book though.
Teen gets kidnapped and hunted by top members of NYC society.
It was a good book, my only complaint was how the narrator voiced out the women and children.
This was an OK story. Not like the scary stories that he usually puts out.
The narrarator sucked big time! His voices for Jinx sounded just weird. And lines would always repeat at certain parts, but repeat in an entire different tone from the last time. -as if a new narrarator had taken over. Im like huh? Did he quit and start back up on different days? So yup...take your chances on a tale about the homeless who live underground in NYC.
Just spent some time in NYC, and this book was a great follow-up. Great story and idea. Saul is a bit wordy though...there is such thing as too much character development of minor characters.
WHEN I HIT DOWNLOAD, IT SAYS IT IS DONE....BUT IT IS NEVER THERE AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET A HOLD OF ANYONE TO HELP
