I have never written a review of anything before but I had to about Hound. Everywhere Ken went in this book I was right there. I could picture myself at the crime scenes racing after Jackie, feeling for O'Reilly, hating Cunningham and trying to put the pieces together as if I was part of the team. I loved both his books. Read Her dark path 1st and then Hound. I wish there were more books, but alas not yet.
This is book 2 in the Rebecca Bradley series but it works perfectly as stand alone. Book 1 focussed on Rebecca whereas Hound is more to the forefront in this one.
Rebecca is still trying to find out what happened to her mother and her father is refusing to share what he knows. Her relationship with her father has deteriorated to the level that they no longer communicate.
Hound is a massive beast of a man but one we would all like as our protector and he is in love with Rebecca so is determined to keep her safe.
The setting is the wilderness of Canada with dense forest and remote villages. Plenty of places to hide. Enter Matthew, a unique character who, for the majority of his life, lives off the land. His tracking skills are unbeatable and they play a big part in this book.
It is a steadily moving story with a look back to the past via Rebecca's diary as she continues her quest the past and present work in tandem which makes for interesting reading.
I found it a little complicated in places and had to backtrack to work out where I was on occasions but it is, nevertheless, a gripping story and I am looking forward to book 3.
Second book in a growing series about a Canadian detective. First book concentrated on the main character Rebecca Bradley while this second book seemed to be pushing forward a support character, Hound, from the first book. Hound still remains quite an enigma but there is promise of things to come.
