The Hunter

Book 3, Wyatt Hunt Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Raised by loving adoptive parents, San Francisco private investigator Wyatt Hunt never had an interest in finding his birth family—until he gets a chilling text message:

“How did your mother die?”

The answer is murder, and Hunt takes on a case he never knew existed, unsolved for decades. His family’s dark past unfurls in dead ends. Child Protection Services, who suspected Hunt was being neglected, is uninformed; his birth father, twice-tried but never convicted of the murder, is in hiding; Evie, his mother’s drug-addicted religious fanatic of a friend, is untraceable. And who is the texter, and how is this person connected to Hunt? Time is running out. Insisting the murderer is out there, the texter refuses to be identified. But as the case escalates, so does the threat—for the killer has a secret that will go to the grave…

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2011 –  How did your mother die? For San Francisco PI Wyatt Hunt, that enigmatic text message triggers his biggest, and most personal, case and it s a great start to bestseller Lescroart s outstanding fourth Hunt novel (after 2010 s The Treasure Club). Hunt, an orphan with few details of his birth parents, soon learns that his birth name was Wyatt Carson; that his mother, Margaret, was murdered; and that his father, Kevin, was charged with the crime but never convicted. He also receives, from the priest who married his parents, a letter from Kevin asserting his innocence. Lescroart deftly handles a large supporting cast and makes fine use of the city of San Francisco while cleverly incorporating a piece of real history into the narrative, the infamous Jonestown massacre in Guyana in 1978 (the People s Temple leader Jim Jones had been active in San Francisco). This book succeeds on every level as a mystery, as a thriller, and as an exploration of its appealing hero.

Customer Reviews

The Hunter

Great entertainment from Lescroart, as usual.

The Hunter

I've recently read five or six of this author's books and really appreciated the humor in them. I don't recall laughing one time with this book. I kept hearing the song " Feelings " as I read the book. Overall it was good but not great like some of his others.

The Hunter

I have to be careful when I start one of John's books. My calendar needs to be clear because once I start, everything else must be put on hold.

A great read and a wonderful addition to the Dismas Hardy, Abe Glitzky and Wyatt Hunt trio of John LesCroart characters.
