I absolutely fell in love with that eye-catching book cover and title of this book and because of that I couldn’t wait to read this one. This was my very first introduction to a LISA UNGER novel.
“What is the difference between justice and revenge?” – Lisa Unger
THE RED HUNTER by LISA UNGER is an action-packed, steady-paced, tense, and suspenseful Psychological Thriller with a few twists and turns to keep you reading and guessing right to the very end. Although, this book was a little predictable and I had a good idea of how it was all going to playout there were still some surprising aspects to this story that did keep me intrigued right to the very end.
What made this such an intriguing read for me was the layered plot-line and the strong characters as sometimes it just doesn’t matter if I know whodunit (there was one surprise for me though) as I was so wrapped up in the characters lives and the issues that were going on within this story.
LISA UNGER delivers a vivid and easy read here with several enjoyable writing styles which is told in multiple points of view and timelines bringing together two separate stories that come together in the end. I did find it a little confusing at the start but once I figured out how the story was being delivered I found it easy to follow along with the storyline and all the characters involved.
Trigger Alert: There is a rape scene early on in the novel and is discussed throughout.
To sum it all up it was an entertaining, enjoyable, suspenseful, steady-paced, quick and easy read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!
Thank you so much to NetGalley, Lisa Unger, and Touchstone for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
