This was so good I purchased the sequel right away. The characters, the premise, the plot, the mystery.
Since Red Dragon, there have only be..Show More »en a few stories where the FBI is presented as the professsional, top cop organization it truly is. In the Huntress series, the focus is on one particular unit in the San Francisco office. They work as a team, despite internal disagreements. They are smart, resorceful, respectful and diligent.
RC Bray does a great job with the voices. His tone has a nstural hard, masculine edge, yet his treatment of the various female characters is just as believable.
Well the first book, Huntress Moon, was so good I immediately purchased this one. Blood Moon is good enough for me to start the third, Cold Moon. ..Show More » Actually, this book is really a continuation of the plot and theme of Huntress Moon, rather than a sequel. It picks up 2 weeks after the conclusion of Huntress with the team laser focused on stopping a vigil ante killer. Same characters, same villain(s). I have a suspicion the two books were originally onenovel, split up by the publisher. Who knows, the third book, Cold Moon may well be more of the same. (It worked with Lord of the Rings, which was broken into three seperate novels by the publisher.)
This is another 5 star novel, but in my opinion you must read Huntress Moon first.
All three books in this modern detective series are excellent, but I liked the second book most. The series must be read in order written.
..Show More »>These three books in the Huntress/FBI series are my first exposure to Alexandra Sokoloff's works. She is obviously an immensely talented author. The motives and methods of Roarke, the FBI agent, and the huntress, a very empathetic female serial killer (yes, I know that is weird!), are well understood by the listener.
RC Bray is best known as the narrator of science fiction novels including The Martian but also others. Whoever selected Bray to narrate this series deserves credit because he does an outstanding job.
I recommend all three books in this series for those who like police thrillers or psychological thrillers.
This is such a good book, I am actually a little surprised. Based on the description I really wasn't sure what to expect. To me the description s..Show More »ounds like there is some sort of communication between the past and present. There's not. Anyway, the actual story is that Matthew Roarke, (the investigator on leave because of Cara) begins an in depth look into her beginnings trying to get a clear understanding of her past. At the same time he's doing this you get the narrative of her her past in her words as he discovers her reality. The two converge towards the end. I will not spoil this for anyone, it worth the listen. For people who are fascinated with this series as I am, this book is very enlightening as gives much background info how this woman's personality was formed. For anyone who has never read/listened to any of the Huntress Moon series I would recommend that they be listened to in order. Each book builds on the previous and there is carryover from one to the next that can't be appreciated otherwise. R C Bray narrates this book as well as the others in this series. If you've never listened to him before he is GREAT! I initially found this series when searching for books that he narrated. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.
