Entertaining but the ending was not good
My First Book By Darcy Coats, You Won't Put It Down
So for last few years I've been reading various "Mystery" books, typically centered around crime (Such as Rizolli & Isles, The Lizzy Gardner Series and Tracy Crosswhite Series) but I've recently moved a little more into "Phycological Thrillers" (Such as Mark Edwards "The Retreat" and "The Magpies") I personally found this read to be similar in tone with "The Magpies" as just like in that book, you think you know what is going on but you're n ...more
HUNTED, by Darcy Coates, starts out as the story of a missing hiker, Eileen Hershberger, and her friends' frantic search for the truth. Part thriller, part police-procedural, this story focuses mainly on the isolation and sense of confusion that accompanies being lost in a large expanse of forest, with no end in sight.
I guess I'm in the minority for this one, but I just never felt a "connection" to any of the many main characters. Their dialog, relations to each other, and how easily t ...more
Some really good moments, a few twists and surprises. This follows a group that goes into the forest searching for the lead character's missing sister, who vanished while hiking. Another story line involves a detective piecing together the puzzle from her end. The story dragged in a few places. Overall, I was more intrigued by the group in the forest and the obstacles they confronted. A pretty solid read.
Really good! Good plot, lots of action, wide cast of characters...
However, at 93% there’s an embarrassing editing mistake...two of the female characters names were mixed up. At a fairly climactic point...just sloppy.
This was a very unique and fresh tale. I loved it. Being a fan of horror, suspense and thriller you get a lot of hauntings and murders, but this twisty book takes you on an unexpected ride leading you down one path of a creepy, hailunted, monster-filled forest just to turn and lead you in a whole other direction. Excellent writing. Great scares. Fantastic characters. Delicious ending.
Mystery/Police Procedural With a Soupçon of Horror
I enjoyed this suspenseful, well-written book with its smart mix of genres. The main storyline was twofold:
1) a small group of friends search for a 22 year old woman, missing after hiking up a mountain. Dense, old-growth forests cover the mountain—blocking out the sky by day and turning everything frighteningly dark at night.
2) police officers of a nearby touristy town are used to reports of inexperienced hikers, who go missing but are rarely f ...more
