Ian Rankin, in Blood Hunt, introduces Gordon Reeve, a former SAS soldier. When Reeve’s journalist brother is found dead, Reeve doesn’t accept the ruling of suicide. Believing he was murdered, Reeve sets out on a quest to find out why his brother was killed and by whom.
Although Reeve is no longer a professional killer, he remembers his training and he’ll have to put his body to its limits to exact revenge while keeping his family safe. He sets out on his hunt for the killer, only to find himself the hunted.
Rankin is an award-winning author and Blood Hunt is fast-paced with interesting characters. Rankin clearly did his research for this book, weaving his knowledge seamlessly into the plot.
The only negative for me was that there were a few too many characters to keep up with and differentiate.
