Finished The Red Hunter by Lisa Unger. I received a copy for review.
When she was a teenager, Zoey’s parents were murdered and she was tortured and left for dead. Now she’s an adult and tracking down the people responsible. Meanwhile, Claudia and her teenage daughter are starting over, living in a new house that’s a total fixer-upper. And there are rumors that her house is (a) haunted and (b) the place where a million dollars is hidden. You guessed it—they’re living in Zoey’s old house.
This book is amazing and I absolutely dare you to stop reading it. There are a few twists but mostly it’s just insanely suspenseful.
I love how this book basically exists in shades of gray. People are complicated and most of them are good and bad, although a few are all bad. It is a master class in creating real characters and in plotting. (Basically just get this book and read it. You won’t be sorry.)
I am a fairly recent Lisa Unger convert and this makes me wish I could skip all my current TBR and just read her backlist.
