Hawk McMillan is on an undercover assignment, getting close to Dilaver and trying to locate his weapons of mass destruction. He canít compromise his cover no matter the crimes he witnesses. His local contact is CIA agent Amber Hutchins. Amber has worked in Macedonia for four years, running an American style diner and acting as go-between for information that passes through her restaurant. There is no guarantee that this woman can be trusted. And still Hawk canít resist her allure. He might not like working with a partner, especially one working in a gray zone, but to stop Dilaver teamwork is necessary.
Sometimes over-the-top but always true to character itís only the last 60 pages that turn this easy and intriguing read into a difficult one for readers not familiar with Gennita Lowís world of Navy SEALís and secret agents. The Hunter is not a stand alone title! Itís the sequel to The Protector.
The Hunter is Gennita Low at her best and most violent. However, Hawkís struggle with his conscience, his anger in having to stand by helplessly when presented with the sights of rape and murder and his hunger for true emotions, also allow for a very intense and touching story. Sure it is action packed and has hot sex to go with it, but it is the theme of friendship and trust that really drives this story. And whereas there were far too many characters to keep them straight and no real relationship development in the first of Gennita Lowís Navy SEAL trilogy, the sequel delivers a character driven story, with a poignant love story and enough action to please her existing fans and the readers of Suzanne Brockman and especially Cherry Adair.
