Rapid Descent by Gwen (Faith) Hunter

14 Sep

Another great Hunter stand-alone thriller

buy the eBook

 I would not have thought I would be that interested in a book that focuses so much on kayaking and whitewater sports but Hunter does her research so well that I felt like I needed a crash helmet and personal flotation device on during some of the scenes in this book – they were that vivid. If you like kayaking at all, you are going to LOVE this book.

I thought Hunter did a great job not only with the descriptive portions of the book but I felt she rounded out each character and gave each one in the book a very vivid face and voice. I really liked Nell, the female protaganist. I liked Paw Paw, her bootlegging grandfather, and JJ, her precocious 6 year old son, too. And I liked that the romance in the book was hinted at but not consummated. I believe it can be a romantic novel without sex scenes on every other page. The chase can be a good portion of the fun.

I have read Gwen Hunter for years, even when it was difficult getting her books in the U.S. and I had to order them from the U.K. Her Delande series scared American publishers, I think. It is disturbing – even in this day and age. It deals with difficult subjects – child abuse and incest. And even now I don’t think the series is widely available. Her next series about Dr. Rhea Lynch also has some disturbing characters and aspects. But ALL of her books – and I’ve read most of them – are well researched and exceptionally well written. I have just ordered the four that I realize that I haven’t read to date including the two she wrote with her husband under the name of Gary Hunter. I will let you know what I think of them once I finish them.

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
