A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel… Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff’s riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
Huntress Moon is the first in The Huntress/FBI Thrillers series.
The story alternates between FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke and The Huntress herself which I thought was a great way to be able to get to see both sides from the hunter to the hunted.
From the very first chapter Alexandra Sokoloff grabs her readers attention. I found the story fairly fast paced with a cracker of a storyline. The characters were very believable in their roles and it’s hard not to feel empathy towards The Huntress herself.
Huntress Moon is a great start to a very promising new series of books and I can not wait to read the next one.
Many thanks to Thomas & Mercer and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
