Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family—until he gets a chilling text message:

“How did your mother die?”

The answer is murder, and Hunt takes on a case he never knew existed, unsolved for decades. His family’s dark past unfurls in dead ends. Child Protection Services, who suspected Hunt was being neglected, is uninformed; his birth father, twice-tried but never convicted of the murder, is in hiding; Evie, his mother’s drug-addicted religious fanatic of a friend, is untraceable. And who is the texter, and how is this person connected to Hunt? Time is running out. Insisting the murderer is out there, the texter refuses to be identified. But as the case escalates, so does the threat—for the killer has a secret that will go to the grave…

    Great entertainment from Lescroart, as usual.

    I've recently read five or six of this author's books and really appreciated the humor in them. I don't recall laughing one time with this book. I kept hearing the song " Feelings " as I read the book. Overall it was good but not great like some of his others.

    I have to be careful when I start one of John's books. My calendar needs to be clear because once I start, everything else must be put on hold. A great read and a wonderful addition to the Dismas Hardy, Abe Glitzky and Wyatt Hunt trio of John LesCroart characters.

    Absolutely, a fantastic book. It is the first book that I read from this author, having always defaulted to Grisham. I cannot be more thrilled having made the choice to read John's book, The Hunter. I look forward to making my next pick from his arsenal. Living in the same town as John and his wife, I am delighted to show my support for his tireless hours and extensive research that is apparent throughout The Hunter. I now have a new, favorite author!

    I know authors need to expand their field of characters, however Dismas and Abe remain my favorites. Wyatt has no substance, I can't get involved with his character.
