Hunter’s Chase by Val Penny by guest author Susan Roebuck

I have a new hero: Detective Inspect Hunter Wilson – tough when he needs to be but with a soft centre.

Move over all you crime writers, there’s a new girl in town : Val Penny . She’s penned a crime thriller that is so well plotted with a myriad of believable characters that the novel moves along at a pace that keeps the reader hooked from beginning to end. Hunter’s Chase is a novel that should stand on the shelves next to the best-sellers.

I believe the book was well researched because, for me, the facts were spot on (the post mortem scene will stay with me for a long time!). The mix of humour and thriller kept me enthralled (as well as “seeing” Edinburgh in winter) and I can’t wait to see what lovely DI Hunter is going to have to solve next. An excellent debut novel.
