Friends this is my review of the book Blood Hunt by Ian Rankin, which I read recently. This was originally written as a Jack Harvey Novel.
The star of the book is Gordon Reeve, an ex SAS solder, who now runs survival courses for wealthy city dwellers in the wilds of Scotland. Sadly he gets a phone call to say that his brother a reporter has been found dead in his car in San Diego - the car was locked from the inside, a gun in his hand.
Gordon flies out to America to identify the body, and soon comes to realise that his brother has in fact been murdered. After the funeral and back in Scotland he finds out that there have been more visitors than usual to his house and his home has been bugged by professionals.
Gordon sets out to find out why his brother was killed and what he was investigating. In doing so he finds that his past in the SAS comes back to haunt him. He now finds that he is fighting for his and his families life.
It is a good and gripping story – sort of Rebus on steroids. Ian manages to deliver the suspense and excitement of the chase really well.
Well this I think was my last Jack Harvey novel that Ian has written and was an enjoyable read as book 7 week 5 fiction 7 (audio book 2) non fiction 0
