    1 thought on “Hour of the Hunter”

    1. HOUR OF THE HUNTER - NRJance, J.A. - Standalone The hunter is free to kill again -- and hour by hour, he draws closer . . .The brilliant psychopath Andrew Carlisle spent only six years in prison for the brutal torture–murder of a young girl of the Tohono O'otham tribe. The testimony of Diana Ladd -- a teacher on the reservation -- put Carlisle behind bars, and now she can't ignore the dark, mystical signs that say a predator has returned to prowl the Arizona desert. Because no matter where Dia [...]

    2. The Walker/Ladd series is a selection of mishmash. The plot was good, but like her others in the series she mixes up the past with the present and throws in Indian folk lore. I don't know if she is a wantabe Michael Slade, the master of combining historical events with a current day mystery, but she is failing. The first book I read in the series [which was actually #2] was too confusing to enjoy. The next one I read [the 3rd] and this one [the 1st] I managed to enjoy. But I still can not excuse [...]

    3. I've been a fan of J. A. Jance for some time, but I just started reading her Walker series. I received a pre-release copy of Queen of the Night to review, but realized there were several other books in the series so I'm catching up, starting with Hour of the Hunter.There is a definite distinction between this book and her others. While this is still set in Southern Arizona, it takes place in the mid-70's. There is also a tighter integration of native peoples into the story line, particularly the [...]

    4. This is more a criticism of the Free Fridays program rather than the story itself- why are so many Free Fridays books about serial killing rapists? I swear, half the free friday books I've read have been about serial killers. A better showing than most, but not my cup of tea. I liked the flashbacks and native stories woven into the main narrative, but the main narrative is not what I would have liked to read. Also Davey is supposed to be six but is acting like he's 12? Come on. I may not be a pa [...]

    5. Crime thriller takes place on and near Papago reservation in Arizona and Mexico. Andrew Carlisle, a sadistic serial killer, is released early from prison, and proceeds to take revenge on the woman who put him there. Some graphic scenes, somewhat weak on the plotting, too many flashbacks, lots of interspersed stories of Indian folklore, the book is a bit of a disorganized mess. I wanted to find out if Carlisle would get what he had coming to him, and Jance managed to keep me interested, but those [...]

    6. This is the second novel I've read this month involving a woman being stalked and hunted. Both books involved native-American characters and traditions. Hour of The Hunter is based in southern Arizona on the Papago Indian reservation and has a substantial bit of information on tribal legends. It is also an excellent suspense thriller spanning the 60s and 70s. J.A. Jance may not be a fancy writer but she knows how to get the job done in this edge-of-the seat thriller.

    7. Love her writing but the story was so creepy and the fact that it takes place near where I live was even creepier! But of course I'm reading the next one in this series. :-)

    8. I've read many, if not most, of Jance's books, but this is the first Walker Family book for me. It's a great one and really shows her writing talent. It's more involved and definitely more intense than any of her other books, almost like a completely different author. It's a very dark story dealing with horrific murders and a murderer who is evil personified. As always, the characters are wonderful, with even more depth and emotional vesting than her other series, including the detestable villai [...]

    9. For six years Diana Ladd had hoped having Andrew Carlisle in prison was enough to keep them safe. After the tragedy that took her husband, her unborn child’s father reputation and life from them all she could do was find a way to carry on. Raising the child (a boy named David) had been a little easier when the strange bond had formed with Rita Antone. The grandmother of the women Garrison Ladd had been accused of murdering had held no grudge, surprisingly to everyone involved she grew to care [...]

    10. Every book I've read of J A Jance has been incredible! This story is no exception. A Native Indian woman is brutally abused and killed. One suspect kills himself and the other gets 6 years in prison. He serves his time and now he's out. Everyone thinks the real killer was the one who killed himself. What this man has planned when he gets out is only from a sick and depraved man. He wants to kill all those he thinks help put him in prison which include the dead man's wife. Interwove through the s [...]

    11. Compelling read, otherwise I wouldn't have plowed through the horrendously bad typos in the last half or so. I can only think that the Kindle edition was created by OCR scanning the book and the type must have been smudged. Consistent weird stuff 'hi' instead of 'in', 'ban' instead of 'that'. Like I said, weird.As a suspense novel, setting aside the crappy production values of a Bix Six publisher, it's fairly decent. The heroine acted stupid only occasionally, the hero didn't save the day, and t [...]

    12. Normally I like Jance's books and have read several of hers set in Arizona so when I saw a free book offered for the Kindle I was excited. Yeah well, you get what you pay for. I didn't like this book at all. There were numerous typos (I guess from it being scanned), which I found very distracting. That would have been bearable had it not been for the subject matter. Jance spent too much time going back and forth between the story line and old legends. I don't mind legends, just not when they bec [...]

    13. I'm used to J.A. Jance's Sheriff Joanna Brady series, so this book was a pleasant surprise. Much rougher and edgier than the Joanna Brady series, Hour of the Hunter was a well-plotted, exciting book. A few minor issues -- the ending seemed to arise out of nowhere, very abrupt after the lead-up. And the final punishment for the criminal wasn't nearly harsh enough. All the same, a nice change from Jance's series. If you liked this book, particularly the native American references, you'll love Tony [...]

    14. I have read and enjoyed Jance's J.P. Beaumont and Joanna Brady series. I'm reading this series now because Jance is including Walker in the upcoming Beaumont mystery. I'm not impressed with this first in the series. Hopefully the next one will be better. I found so many of the characters to be underdeveloped and stereotypical. I found the violence to be unsettling. Jance handles violence much better in other books. I didn't mind the Native American legends that were intertwined with the narrativ [...]

    15. Not one of my favorites. Jance drug the book on trying in some ways to mimic Hillerman. I couldn't wait to get thru it and almost stopped reading. For me, she didn't try to build empathy for one of the main characters and I just didn't really enjoy the book.

    16. I'm so glad I had this freebie on the ereader; it's a good distraction. The constant, lengthy flashbacks made for some slow going, but I gather this is the first of a series, and Jance apparently wanted to fill in the characters before moving on. Actually, I think it works even if the book is a standalone: it points up the way that people's lives are intertwined, especially in certain regions. I like the setting and Jance's use of it. The Papago stories work well: we're all a product of the stor [...]

    17. I'd ignored this first of her AZ-based series because it seemed neglected, probably pointless – there were only 2 or 3 when I started reading her, over a span of better than a dozen years. I'm now glad I did. This was way darker than expected, and that's not even taking into account a very rough ending. There isn't really much to the story (which in this case is a blessing), mostly just a few days of piecemeal progression until it takes over for the final 15-ish%. The rest is a mash of charact [...]

    18. Wow. Suspense galore. I am glad I went to the 1st in this seriesbut I have to say the approach of combining American cultural influences was intriguing, but adding the chronological switches really broke my focus! (Thus the 4 star)Interjections of the native legends was distracting at first, but I decided to give them a little extra focus and I realized they actually made sense tying Rita Antone's heritage in with the overarching story of the original events from before the book opens. And the e [...]

    19. J.A. Jance is one of my favorite author's and she remains in that position.I read this ebook checked out of the library. It did not present well in epub --no breaks were shown and as this book bounces between time periods and various characters, the lack of breaks made it more difficult to catch the shiftsI enjoyed the historical stories of the Papago. The characters were well defined. The scenes --well, they were *too* graphic for my personal taste. Thus the rating. The book was a dark read muc [...]

    20. Even though I'm in the middle of two other J.A. Jance series, I found my self starting this one because her series are all interconnected in some way. I was drawn into the story right away. This is one of her vilest villains that I've read about so far. There is no mystery, but the reader gets to see a crime committed and then watch the story unfold. This book gets my vote for most unusual character name: Fat Crack! What a name!

    21. I'm a J.A. Jance avid reader for many years. Somehow I missed reading this particular series. I've had to give this book a DNF. The brutality and evil was just too much for me. I do find the book to be well written, thus the 2 stars rather than 1. At some point I might be able to handle the evil, and I would give this book a second try.

    22. I generally love JA Jance books but this is clearly an earlier work. I also am not sure whether my issue with the jumping around between characters and time frames was the writing or that the kindle edition eliminated necessary extra line spaces. I may read the next in the series but I’m in no rush.

    23. A lot of build up to the story and then it all ends in the last chapter. Been a while since I read any J.A. Jance, but I still like them. Now I have to make sure I have all of them before I continue because missing one book leaves a lot out of the story arc.

    24. I found this book difficult to get into with a narrative that seems to come from too many directions at once. Although I generally enjoy Jance's books, this one was just OK to me.

    25. Why do writers and sometimes movie producers think that putting together a story within a story within a story within a story and mixing it all up is really a good idea?

    26. Gruesome but with some interesting elements, especially the stories from the Native Americans. They were wonderful.

    27. A bit gristly, but I always like JA Jance. Her characters take over her stories so I must keep reading until the end.

    28. Though the book was written years ago, it was such a fascinating reading. Will continue with the second book.
