Kurzbeschreibung


From Thriller Award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff - Book 1 in the riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.


FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of "accidents" and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke's hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.

Reviews:

"Some of the most original and freshly unnerving work in the genre."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"Alexandra Sokoloff's talent brings readers into the dark and encompassing world of the unknown so completely that readers will find it difficult to go to bed until the last page has been turned. Her novels bring human frailty and the desperate desire to survive together in poignant stories of personal struggle and human triumph. But the truly fascinating element of Sokoloff's writing is her deep dig into the human psyche and the horrors that lie just beneath the surface of our carefully constructed facades." -- Fiction Examiner     
                                                           
"This interstate manhunt has plenty of thrills... Sokoloff's choice to present both Roarke's and the killer's perspectives keeps the drama taut and the pages flying." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Sokoloff is simply amazing!" -- Bookreporter

"Sokoloff is an author not to be missed." -- Bestselling author Heather Graham

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eine Frau als Serienkillerin? 8. Juni 2013
Von Buchdoktor HALL OF FAME REZENSENT TOP 100 REZENSENT
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Direkt vor Matthew Roarkes Augen wird der Agent vor einen Lkw geschubst, mit dem er sich gerade auf dessen Wunsch persönlich treffen wollte. Ein Zufall? Ein Auftragsmord der Bande, der dieser Mann auf der Spur war? Alexandra Sokoloffs FBI-Ermittler jagt nun die Frau, die ihm am Tatort wegen ihres im Pazifik-Klima ungewöhnlichen Rollkragen-Shirts aufgefallen war. Lange ist ihm unklar, ob diese Jägerin eine Auftragsmörderin oder eine Serientäterin ist und dass eine der Taten auf ihrer Route sich in keins der üblichen Täterbilder einordnen lässt. Spannend und mit psychologischem Geschick wird aus der Perspektive von Jäger und Gejagter erzählt. Roarke, der Jäger, war seit seiner Kindheit entschlossen, das Böse zu bekämpfen - für mich eine faszinierende Figur, deren Emotionen ich sehr gut nachempfinden konnte. Sokoloff zieht den Spannungsbogen zusätzlich mit dem Auftauchen eines kleinen Kindes an, um dessen Leben nicht nur Roarke und seine Kollegen bangen, sondern auch die Leser. Der erste Band einer geplanten Serie spielt im Raum San Francisco und lässt für die Nebenfiguren aus Roarkes Team noch Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten in zukünftigen Fällen vermuten. Auch wenn an den Tatorten ganze Seen von Blut zurückbleiben, finde ich Sokoloffs Einstieg sehr gut gelungen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly recommended page turner 15. Januar 2014
Von Mathias
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I like crime stories and I prefer crime stories written by women, please don't ask me why.
After a lot of reading some K. Slaughter, M. H. Clark and E. George I came across the Huntress Moon and I liked it right from the beginning. My review is not meant to be a spoiler so just give this book a chance and you will be rewarded with a gripping page turner.
A fast-moving and very intriguing crime story, a breath-taking rollercoaster. I am very happy that the sequel "Blood Moon is already available.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exploring Evil and Beauty in California 12. Juli 2012
Von Lil Gluckstern - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Huntress Moon starts with a dreamy, almost languorous description of San Francisco in the sun, introduces the protagonist, Roarke, and moves quickly into the action that doesn't even stop with the end of the book. Roarke, a former BAU profiler for the FBI, slowly finds out information about his serial killer who operates with uncanny and professional skill in killing victims. They have nothing in common except that they are not very nice people. The tension is maintained throughout as the action accelerates, and Roark is drawn into a multi state search for someone who operates in some of the most beautiful scenery in our country. Sokoloff looks at evil and what brings it about, and soberly finds the beauty and kindness present in the worst of us. Or the evil present in the best of us. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I hope the next is available sooner than later. The hero is supported by a very appealing cast of cohorts, and I would like to see more of them. Very strong writing, and a good, touching story make this a highly recommended book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a ride! Excellent thriller. 11. Juli 2012
Von K. Croto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It has been a long time since I've been drawn to a thriller that didn't involve some very explicit element of the paranormal; when the author stated on her blog that she was doing a giveaway for this title, I clicked through to see what it was about -- and I am so glad that I did. I have a soft spot for dark, handsome, emotionally repressed FBI agents (thank you, Fox Mulder), and the correlation of Roarke chasing a female serial killer -- I had to see what was going to happen.

The characters were well-rounded and very interesting. Although there are some definite familiar notes here -- the cop who can't connect to a family, the woman who can't tolerate children being hurt -- they are expressed in a fresh enough way that they don't feel like tropes, instead feel like good friends that I get to reconnect with after a long absence. The plot kept going to different places than I expected, which I loved -- I felt surprised and interested as things rolled along, and I did not guess the ending, which is always important to me in this genre.

There is a slight element of the paranormal worked into this book, but it is more a hint of the evil that walks the world, the thing that cops and poets see, and the rest of us try to ignore. I don't think this would put off a reader who wants a more strict procedural book.

I am eagerly looking forward to the sequel!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read 5. Juli 2012
Von Mary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Huntress Moon hooked me with the image twist on the first page. We're placed in beautiful San Francisco, but are immediately shown there is a dark side. A mysterious woman walks among the degradation seemingly without fear. The main male character works for the FBI and is rushing to meet his undercover man.

The stories are told in alternating chapters, one present tense one past. We flow effortlessly between them, sequentially getting closer to when our characters come face to face. Within the tight story line, Sokoloff's use of images and her descriptions place us side by side with these rich characters, propelling us into the story itself.

I'm thrilled this will be a series. I feel I know these characters already and cannot wait to see where Sokoloff takes them next. I will definitely be going along for the ride.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow! 3. Juli 2012
Von L.A. Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Yes, I'm a huge serial killer thriller fan. And I've read all the greats--Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon, The Alienist. I also love the crime writers James Ellroy, Michael Connelly, and Dennis Lehane. I'm picky. Real picky. I'm always searching to recreate that experience of reading a crime book and becoming so obsessed that I'm unable to put it down, refusing even to speak to my family members. So it was with real excitement that I ripped through Sokoloff's HUNTRESS MOON, and turned the last page with a satisfied sigh.

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roark witnesses a fellow agent killed in front of him on a busy San Francisco street. Right before the man steps in front of a truck, an attractive woman behind him says something, causing his death.

Thus begins the hunt. For the rarest of criminals. A female serial killer. The idea of hunting is used brilliantly in the book, with Roark hunting this young woman, just as the young woman is doing some hunting of her own. And when she meets a young boy and his handsome father, fresh from a wounding divorce, we wonder who will die and who will live.

The characters are alive and three dimensional, and Sokoloff peels the mystery of what happened to this young woman back at a deliberately provocative pace. Who is she? Why is she doing what she's doing? What is she doing? And will Roark, who has a strange connection to her, be able to stop her before it's too late?

It's rare for a book in this genre to satisfy on all levels--plot, character and theme. But at the end of Huntress Moon, I was hungering for more. The characters are just that good, the themes about good and evil, love and connection, deeply resonant. I also really appreciated that the female main character was just as complicated and interesting (maybe even more!) than the male characters.

I cannot wait until Sokoloff's next book. I've read The Harrowing, which I loved, and have just now ordered all her previous novels. I look forward to hanging at the beach this summer, soaking up the blood and ignoring my family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best book I've read in a long long time! 9. Juli 2012
Von Joan Huston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a bit different then her other paranormal mysteries, in that this is a suspense thriller with only a tinge of paranormal here and there....kinda. I loved it! Really hard to put down and great characters, make this a MUST read! It is WAY worth the price! You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book, and really am looking forward to the next in the series!
