Set against the backdrop of San Francisco, Treasure Hunt: A Wyatt Hunt Novel follows the ongoing exploits of Wyatt Hunt, the private investigator Lescroart brought to life three years ago his novel The Hunt Club. This time, the main character falls headlong into a dead body in the lagoon
- a prominent dead body. Hunt, along with junior associate Mickey Dade, see in the deceased an opportunity to revive their sagging business and once again put themselves on the map. But first they need to sort through the details, lies and rumors swirling around the case.
Hunt and Dade smack of the tough-guy
investigators from back in the day; Baretta and Columbo come to mind. Against all odds, they ultimately defeat the bad guys, but not before taking it on the chin once or twice.
Lescroart's trademarks are all over this one - a taut storyline filled with engaging heroes and menacing villains. If you're looking for some suspense and a tale sure to keep you involved, you can't go wrong with Treasure Hunt.
