I LOVE thrillers! Only the Hunted Run certainly didn't disappoint.
wastes no time getting started, dropping the reader
right in the middle of a shooting at the U.S. Capitol.
happens to be in the building when the shooting starts. Being a
newspaper reporter, instead of evacuating, he pursues the shooter and
We follow Sully throughout the book as he digs deeper into the story,
trying to determine who the shooter was and their motivation for the
crime. The novel is fast paced, and took a few turns I wasn't expecting
along the way. It started out so quickly, I was hooked from page one. I
liked that Sully is a reporter, giving him a different perspective and
motivation for his inquiries than you see in a typical detective
mystery. Without saying too much the shooter is soon captured and his apparently
crazy rantings in courts send him to a mental hospital for evaluation
while he is awaiting trial.
Meanwhile Carter heads to Oklahoma, where the shooter hails from, and
starts peeling layers off the onion and it soon turns out that things
are a lot different from what they first appeared to be and this
continues as Carter returns to Washington.
While the story line is fascinating and appealing, I didn't quite get as
hooked as I had hoped to be. Sully Carter is an interesting character, a
flawed persona with good instincts for reporting and investigating.
Although right now I'm not sure, I may return to the earlier volumes in
this series to learn more about Sully.
Only the Hunted Run by Neely Tucker is an outstanding story which hardcore thriller lovers will enjoy. Satisfying for a first read, but I'm not going back
All in all:
♥♥♥♥♥♥ and "B-"This book is good, and I liked it okay. There are several noticeable flaws.
