Robert Bidinotto, a well-known and respected voice in the arena of crime and punishment in America, has taken his knowledge and research and entered the world of fiction. His debut novel, HUNTER: A Thriller, is an amazing excursion into the underbelly of what passes for criminal justice in today's society and easily lives up to its title. It is at the same time, exciting, disgusting, educational, an emotional roller coaster and just plain jaw-dropping.

Annie Woods is a special investigator with the CIA and she has just uncovered a traitor in their midst.

Dylan Hunter is a free-lance investigative reporter specializing in crimes and the injustices heaped on crime victims.

They each carry personal baggage from past events in their lives which makes them wary of people and their motives. Trust is a thorny issue for both. But when a brutal attack on unsuspecting victims randomly bring these loners together sparks fly, and they are soon inseparable.

They are both in the midst of other ongoing investigations that seem unconnected. As their relationship develops, an unusual series of murders occur, and shockingly to each, they suddenly begin to have doubts about each other. Are things as they seem?

And will they discover in time that an enemy, who is the manifestation of evil, has them both in his sights?

In a climax of the highest suspense and shock, Dylan and Annie must confront not only this supreme evil, but also their fears and doubts about each other.

And what they discover may not be what they expect.

Robert Bidinotto has woven many seemingly unrelated events into a fine tapestry of adventure, thrills and romance. In fact the love story element is in many ways the true heart of this novel. While it is obvious that Bidinotto's inspiration and message here is to showcase the lack of respect and justice given to most crime victims as his many years of investigation into the subject has revealed; it is also true this author has other areas of influence at work, such as a deep appreciation for the work of America's clandestine operatives and special operation military forces.

HUNTER: A Thriller is well worth the time spent reading it. It is an amazing first novel that is a true experience and not just a story. You will experience a range of emotions and perhaps best of all it is just plain entertaining.
