The Hunter

What would you do if you got this text message? "How did your mother die?" Would you be panicked, because she was fine the last time you talked to her, or angry that someone was randomly sending out insensitive spam text messages? In John Lescroart's suspense filled tale, The Hunter, "How did your mother die?" is a question that Wyatt Hunt cannot answer. He cannot remember his birth mother. All he knows about his past is that he was in and out of foster care until he was adopted into the loving and caring Hunt family. Prompted by this text message, Wyatt, a private investigator by trade, begins to investigate his past. He finds a murdered young mother, an accused father and a trail of lies that leads from Mexico to Jonestown. Each answer leads to another question. Each question draws Wyatt into more and more danger. Secrets are revealed and much is at stake.

This book is the third in a series by John Lescroart. I usually like to read from the beginning in a series, but since this book provides the backstory to Wyatt Hunt's life, it can be read as a standalone book. I read a lot of mysteries, but somehow, until now, I have missed reading John Lescroart's mysteries. I plan to read more!
