I am delighted share my review for The Hunted by Kerry Barnes with you today on blog tour to celebrate the paperback release
Having spent her life watching her father run his East London firm, Zara Ezra has learnt a thing or two about being a gangster, and she’s ready to take over when the time comes.
Mike Regan, a blast from Zara’s past, is the head of his own firm, but when his son is kidnapped in the middle of a gangland feud, Mike has no choice but to accept help from the Ezras to get his little boy back alive.
With a rival firm playing increasingly dirty, murder moves to the top of the agenda and Zara has some big choices to make. It seems that the only way to come out on top is to play them at their own game…
But will she become The Hunter or The Hunted?
A gripping gangland crime thriller, perfect for fans of Martina Cole and Kimberley Chambers.
Kerry Barnes is back gangland style…and without swearing to much I have to say Holy F**king Shit this book is hard core! I am sitting here writing this still having palpitations with a lump in my throat. I was hooked from start to finish and devoured it in no time at all.
So with fresh new characters we meet Zara and Mike… Ladies you are going to love him he’s a hottie. Mike is a blast from Zara’s past. Don’t get thinking this is going to be mushy because it is far from it! The Hunted is the first book in a new series which is wrote in four parts.We follow both of their stories….
OMFG….If only you could of seen me read this book I was sitting there with one eye open and the other closed and found myself shouting NO. You will not believe the tension and each part of the story get’s darker. Kerry has certainly stepped the violence up. It is jammed packed with OMG moments with twists and turns.
You can feel the fear and adrenaline . Oh and not forgetting the LOL moments This story has it all and I loved everything about it. Fans of grit lit will love it.
The author is so gifted and certainly knows how to bring the characters to life with vivid but simple descriptions and takes you on a white knuckle ride of emotions. One minute I felt like my heart was going to jump out my chest and give me a heart attack then I am I’m crying! YES crying can you believe it…it takes a lot to touch me and get those tears rolling. But Kerry Barnes has a way with words and does this to me every time…..mind blowing!!
This is an easy and fast paced read…..it never slowed down that’s for sure. I can not wait to read the next one in the series this book gets all the gold stars from me if not more. It is Kerry’s best book yet!
