5 out of 5 stars
Hunter’s Games was one of those stories that I thought I was going to be able to predict (just a bit) from the way the last book went. But, boy, was I absolutely wrong. Sumner took what he built in the first Adrian Hell book and ran with it. This one includes so many different interactions and groups that I can’t mention any of them, or I’d risk spoiling the whole thing.
Knowing there was a bit of a revenge story with this made it even better. I found that getting Adrian out of his element a bit and playing from his back foot is what made it so interesting. I don’t think Sumner can pull this pacing and storytelling off with every book, but I am hopeful. I will say that he struck gold with this one, and it’s one that I won’t soon forget. I can’t wait to figure out where this series goes and what other stories and situations he’ll get himself into (or be forced into).
A few times, Adrian was humanized in Hunter’s Games, and it helped make him an even more likable character. Sure, he’s the best contract killer in the world, but even they have days off and can be caught off guard from time to time.
I will say that both Sumner and Bennett turned the volume up to 11 with this one. Sumner was relentless in the story. The number of situations that Hell found himself in was crazy, and Bennett’s narration was superb. One of his best yet.
I didn’t have a good place to put this, but this story was shot out of a cannon. It came at you and never stopped.
What happens when two deadly killers collide?
It’s been a year since the explosive events in Nevada. Adrian Hell has kept a low profile, continuing to earn good money killing bad people. But a simple job in San Francisco is about to turn his world upside down.

Bring me Adrian Hell.
This pulse-pounding thriller is the second novel in the award-winning Adrian Hell series, and features some of the most intense blockbuster action sequences ever written.
