"How well do you really know the person you love? How far would you go to find out?" If there was one person in the world Dr. Lauren Chambers was sure she could rely on, it was her beloved husband, Michael. Recovering from an agoraphobic depression and prone to episodes of blinding anxiety, Lauren is a gifted psychologist for whom her husband's love and support mean everything. So when Michael suddenly and mysteriously vanishes, Lauren once again finds herself balancing on a knife's edge, haunted more than ever by an all-too-familiar paranoia. Is there more to it than paranoia, though? Private investigator Nick Bradley believes so. As the pair takes off on a cross-country journey in search of answers -- a search that yields a series of unsettling truths about the husband Lauren believed she knew so well -- bestselling author Alan Jacobson sets into motion a page-turning tale of concealed identities, an assassin's vendetta, and murderous revenge. Once again proving his mastery of the shocking twist and the ingenious turn, Jacobson leads readers on an exhilarating road thriller built for hairpin turns and unexpected detours as Lauren heads for a face-off with the most dangerous secret of all: the truth.

From Alan Jacobson, "one of the brightest stars of the publishing world" (CNN), comes a chilling follow-up to his breakthrough bestseller "False Accusations: " a high-velocity thriller of deadly revenge and psychological mayhem.

Overall Rating: DNF

Audio Rating: 4.00 (Not part of the overall rating)

Why did I DNF?: The Hunted would be loved by my dad! I kept thinking he should be the person reading/reviewing this one. I actually like Alan Jacobson’s writing and have enjoyed other books by him. Why didn’t it work for me? Holy scattered story batman. Seriously this was just too all over the place for me. About the time I would really get into the story, it would shift gear and pull me right back out. I just never could get a grasp on the story. I did listen to the last CD (so I guess I read 7 out of 11) and loved the way the story tied up (aka the reason for a 2 instead of a 1 for a DNF). I do think that The Hunted will work very well for most people who read a lot in the thriller genre. It just wasn’t for me.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Renee Raudman/Length: 13 hrs and 8 mins

Renee is one of my favorite narrators and I really enjoyed her narration of The Hunted. I felt the book warranted two narrators since there were a ton of male characters. Renee did the best she could with that many male voices but there were a few that just didn’t work for me. Her pacing, emotion, and styling were fantastic though! I really recommend Renee as a narrator.

Final Thoughts: If you are a fan of thrillers consider giving The Hunted a whirl! It might work better for you.
