Detective Inspector Hunter Wilson is called to the scene of a murder. DCs Tim Myerscough and Bear Zewedu found a corpse, but when Hunter arrives it has disappeared, and all is not as it seems.
Hunter recalls the disappearance of a dead body thirty years earlier. The Major Incident Team is called in but sees no connection – it is too long ago. Hunter is determined to investigate the past and the present with the benefit of modern DNA testing.
Tim has other problems in his life. His father, Sir Peter Myerscough, is released from jail. He, too, remembers the earlier murder. There is no love lost between Hunter and Sir Peter. Will Hunter accept help from his nemesis to catch a killer?
Hunter’s own secret is exciting and crucial to his future. Will it change his life? And can he keep Edinburgh safe?
As soon as a new Val Penny book hit my email, I knew I had to jump on it. I absolutely loved the previous books in the Edinburgh Crime Mysteries, so I was really excited to continue with Hunter’s Secret.
I recommend reading these in order. I think you can read them as standalone, but I think it would be a better experience to read the series.
Twists and turns, Hunter’s Secret does not disappoint! I love the pacing. It’s easy to be emerged into this novel.
I love the camaraderie within the team of characters. Val Penny knows how to write characters that are realistic and absolutely compelling.
Overall, I loved Hunter’s Secret and I highly recommend it!
