My Thoughts & Review

Hunting Evil is the tenth book in the Robert Hunter series. In fact, I only found out after reading the intriguing synopsis provided by LoveReading UK. Although I haven’t read any of the previous books in the series, I didn’t have a problem with reading this one as standalone.

In Hunting Evil, we follow detective Robert Hunter and an escaped serial killer Lucien Folter who has escaped from prison. But Lucien isn’t just any serial killer/prisoner, he was Robert’s roommate and friend during college. Lucien is also a master at disguising himself which makes it even more difficult to catch him.

This book was so fast paced, I raced through it. It was full of suspense and thrilling moments that had me at the edge of my seat. The plot is full of twists and turns that I really didn’t see coming.  I favourite parts of the book were the graphic scenes and gore bits.

As I said earlier this book can be read as a standalone as it contains enough details to understand both the backstory and the relationship between Detective Hunter and Lucien. The characters were really interesting and intriguing I really enjoyed learning about Lucien’s evil nature and messed up mind.

Hunting Evil was a great read and I will be looking to into reading more books by Chris Carter in the near future. If you’re looking form a dark psychological thriller this is the book I highly recommend you give a go. Just be warned this book isn’t for the faint hearted.

Thank you LoveReading and Simon and Schuster UK for sending me an ARC in return for an honest and unbiased review.
