Publisher's Summary

A brutal, psychopathic murderer is released from prison - and stalks his prey with intent to kill.

© J. A. Jance; (P)1993 Books in Motion

What the Critics Say

"Drawing on Native American life and lore as it describes the hunt for the killer of a Papago Indian girl, Jance's contemporary novel delivers suspense through rich layers of flashbacks and gritty characterization." (Publisher's Weekly)
"Rarely do a book and its audio counterpart merge as spectacularly as they do in Hour of the Hunter....Engene speaks the native names and tongues beautifully. The tension between the hunter and the hunted remains terrifying until the last second." (AudioFile)

    "Hour of the Hunter"

    Exciting and also informative. I had a hard time stopping when I needed to do something. Very exciting ending.

    "Scratchy background noises"

    I kept thinking that it was just my device but it isn't. I even tried restarting my device. No joy. I have never had a Mr. Engene narration have this scratchy background but it is very disconcerting.

    "Great Story - Horrible Narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    J A Jance is a great writer and this book was no exception. The story is great, full of mystery and suspense. However, the narration ruined it. The last few hours was almost intolerable but I stuck it out.


    What didn’t you like about Gene Engene’s performance?

    I will put this narrator on my list of ' Don't listen'. The female characters were all portrayed as whiny and/or angry, even when the situation did not call for that particular emotion. There were scratchy background noises that were extremely distracting.


    Was Hour of the Hunter worth the listening time?

    I will continue to read or listen to this author's books, but will definitely read, rather than listen to, any that have Gene Engene as narrator.

    "Love the narrator"

    I loved this book, but am so happy to have this particular narrator back reading a j.a.jance novel. Way to go.
