Hunting Blind by Paddy Richardson

I am a slow reader, it takes me about a month (or two) to read a book. Hunting Blind however I finished in a week. It probably helps that this thriller is set in my home town which makes the events that unfold and the eventual resolution even more chilling.

The novel starts out like most thrillers. A ‘normal’ town with ‘average’ people until something sinister occurs. I will not spoil the story but the plot unfolds in a unique manner with lots of twists (although some a little predictable) a little romance and an interesting ending which will make you wonder… ‘What would I do in that situation?’  Overall an enjoying read
