“Amazingly intricate and impossible to put down.”

There could be a new president of Russia… and she has plans.

Her nation stands at a precipice, but are they ready to usher a woman into the Kremlin? Will she allow anybody to stop her?

With a dissident voice leaking her secrets to the world, Svetlana might not have that chance –– she will give anything to know the identity and whereabouts of this whistleblower.

Russian oligarchs continue to gather in secret –– a vicious cage fight, controlled by a bloodthirsty man, whose actions surpass anything that The Games have seen before. Is this one step too far?

And with an election mooted and MI6 forever on her tail, do they have the time to stop somebody they see as the most dangerous person in Russia from becoming the next President?

Best of the Reviews:

★★★★★ Incredibly intricate and impossible to put down.

This book definitely has the wow factor. I found it incredibly difficult to put down once I'd started reading. It's amazingly intricate in its construction and plot development. This is my favourite in the series so far, I loved the gap in time in between this book and it's predecessor – it was such fun seeing how things had progressed for the characters involved. I cannot wait to see how things develop in the next one!

★★★★★ A must-read!

Book, was excellent. I enjoyed it. If you have followed the series, then you get to read about Svetlana, the acting President for Russia. She is running for President, but she is still up to her usual tricks, behind the scenes, she is one evil woman. MI6 is after her, to put a stop to her plans, can they stop her? She has a new game going, cage matches. No problem recommending this book.

★★★★★ Brilliant read.

This is another excellent book from Tim Heath. It is a read alone book or better still follow the series! You meet most of the characters from the other books and still more! It goes from Alicante to Russia and is brilliant. There are so many twists and turns that you will want to not put it down. Well written Tim can't wait for your next one.

★★★★★ Another gripping roller coaster ride!

This is another thrilling episode in a dramatic series. Lots of plots and intrigue, to keep you gripped. Tim's writing just gets better! As usual, I can't wait to read the next one.

★★★★★ The Games Meets BBC-type Psychological Drama/Suspense

This is another book in the amazing series “The Hunt” and it follows some of the characters we've come to know well. But it also seems to have a different vibe from previous books; certainly our MI6 agents are not themselves, and not doing so well. And in Russia, the acting President is busy trying to ensure she wins the upcoming election. It is almost as though this book is holding its breath, just surviving and waiting to see what happens next. (Aren't we all?) The Games are still happening, but they don't seem to have anyone's full attention in this book. I get the feeling the President will be back with a bang though!

★★★★★ I loved this book from the Hunt series, it was one of the best!! I couldn't put it down! So much energy in a book. Female Russian President, rich people's games, a powerful hunting, ill minds, agony… I must tell it again, I couldn't put it down!!! A perfect writing job from Tim Heath!

★★★★★ Another gripping episode of plots and intrigue. I'm loving this series, it just gets better every time. Lots going on, I was hooked right the way through. Can't wait to read the next one!

★★★★★ An interesting read that defies being bucketed in any one genre. A political thriller, crime, or action thriller? It continues the story of Russian oligarchs and their unusual quest for entertainment that Heath started many books ago in The Prey. With a new role for Svetlana Volkov, the entertainment continues. To fully enjoy the book, I would suggest that you read the whole series to understand the different storylines introduced throughout this volume.

★★★★★ This was I think the best one in the series up to now. Was fast-moving and one you couldn't put down. Most of the characters are in it from the other books in the series so you knew who they were and what they did. It moved from Russia to Alicante and back to Russia. It had so many twists and turns it kept you guessing right up to the end. Well written Tim.
