Publisher's Summary

When the hunters become the hunted, ex-CIA agent Jed Walker is the man you need.

In 2011, Seal Team Six killed Osama Bin Laden. Now, four years later, someone is eliminating Team Six - one by one they are turning up dead. Jed Walker, ex-CIA, is an outsider back in the game. He's been chasing down a sinister group code-named Zodiac that the big guns - MI5, CIA, the Pentagon - have failed to eradicate. But as Walker follows the trail of bodies, uncovering secrets and making connections he's not supposed to make, he finds the answers are closer to home than he ever imagined. Revenge is the obvious motive, but nothing is ever that simple in love or in war. Can Walker find who's responsible before the body count grows higher? Can he stop another terror attack before more innocent bystanders suffer?

When the line between the good and the bad becomes blurred, when the hunters become the hunted, only one man can save us all.

The Hunted is the second Jed Walker novel - a white-knuckled roller coaster of action suspense.

James Phelan is the best-selling and award-winning author of 28 novels and one work of nonfiction. From his teens he wanted to be a novelist but first tried his hand at a real job, studying and working in architecture before turning to English literature, spending five years at a newspaper and obtaining an MA and a PhD in literature. For Hachette Australia, James has written five titles in the Lachlan Fox thriller series and the Alone trilogy of young adult postapocalyptic novels.

The ex-CIA character of Jed Walker was first introduced in The Spy, which was followed by The Hunted, Kill Switch and Dark Heart. James has also written a 14-book adventure series for Scholastic, titled The Last Thirteen. He has been a full-time novelist since the age of 25 and spends his time writing thrilling stories and travelling the world to talk about them.

Likable Characters with Lots of Action

The plot is pretty good and there are a few twists I didn't see coming. The characters are well developed and likable. What prevented this from getting 5 stars were a few whiplash moments when our protagonist Jed Walker after playing so many things so smart, makes a really dumb mistake or after a long and complicated pursuit the ending seems odd - it doesn't fit well. It is a good story and over all I enjoyed listening to it, but the book is missing a smoothness that some authors have achieved that would earn it 5 stars.
