Multi-talented and award winning author, Jeffery Deaver may be the best thriller author in modern times, and his character, Colter Shaw, survivalist and reward seeker, is back in a fast-moving and exciting novel, Hunting Time , the fourth in the series. Colter is hired to search for Allison Parker, a brilliant engineer whose ex-husband has been released early from prison, and who is determined to kill her because she previously pressed charges against him and sent him to prison for a brutal assault on her. Jon Merritt was a police officer, so the police are on his side, which causes undue pressure and makes it difficult to find her as she tries to protect their daughter and stay safe by fleeing.

Deaver’s storytelling abilities are borderline genius, and readers will be hooked almost immediately in Hunting Time. And while readers are fairly sure that their hero (Colter Shaw in this case) will come out okay in the end, it won’t be without unexpected twists and turns that will keep readers on the edges of their seats. This novel is well-written and easy-to-follow. The characters are well-developed and believable.

Hunting Time is clearly the best Colter Shaw novel yet, and is highly recommended to thriller aficionados who want good writing, constant building suspense, and spine-chilling story-line with a unanticipated dénouement. Deaver is a master and if it were possible, this novel deserves more than 5 stars.
