Would you take the bait?
Dropped into the middle of St Petersburg, handed a lottery ticket worth millions––life-changing money––would you run?
Yet they are watching. They are waiting. These oligarchs won't make it easy––unless it profits them to let you claim the prize.
With eyes on a much bigger prize––Presidential elections are not too far away––these men will stop at nothing. Welcome to the world of the Hunt.
From the internationally read and chart-topping author of The Tablet, comes his most jaw-dropping series yet.
“Intriguing from the first pages––I couldn't put it down!”
What one reader has said:
“Exciting, thrilling and totally unputdownable!
Prepare yourself for an exhilarating insight into how the mega rich play. This electrifying new release from renowned author Tim Heath will have you on the edge of your seat and begging for more!”
Gripping from the get go! A similar world to ‘The Tablet' also by Tim Heath, which I loved too. Fantastic and clever story line. I'm looking forward to the next book in this The Hunt series.
WOW! What a rush! This book is absolutely perfect; I can’t wait for the whole series of “The Hunt”. The first Book “The Prey” is so good! From the first pages you can’t let it down, when you start thinking that everything goes smoothly you have a twist and you get shocked! And then you have to read more! I really appreciate when I can’t imagine what’s going to be next; I love a good story with unexpected twists! A well written book with action, thriller, twists, excitement, agony… With one word: A*M*A*Z*I*N*G !
This is a real page turner. Tim has come up with a highly original idea which could be quite plausible. Russian oligarchs probably would be able to play games like this and how easy would it be to escape their clutches? Like Tim's other books, there are surprises and unexpected twists to the plot. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
An enthralling book featuring a novel concept and showing what can happen when it's taken to extremes for the pleasure of the jaded super-rich.
I am totally in awe of this author. Tim Heath takes the most out there ideas and runs with it, making them plausible, fascinating and engrossing. The Prey is the first of a series and if this first novel is anything to go by then it's going to be mind blowing! I encourage everyone who likes their books full of suspense and thrills to read this, you won't be sorry – and will be impatiently waiting for the next in the series.

This was my second Tim Heath book and I really enjoyed it. There was lots of intrigue, greed and corruption, and a further reminder (if any was needed) of why rampant capitalism has failed the 99% so those at the top can do whatever they please. Scary stuff!
Tim Heath amazes me with each new book. His stories are clever, surprising, contain a twist or two, always well-written, entertaining, and satisfying on every level.As I do not approve of spoilers, I suggest you read the blurb above for a summary of what Heath has in mind for you to know before beginning your reading of his book. There are a few things I can share with you, though, that will not spoil the experience for you.This book reads smoothly with a good flow and is formatted in a way that enhances reading. Put simply, it is well-organized, has a minimum of errors, I think I found “a” misspelling, and it is a clean book considering some of the characters involved.
I imagined this book as a movie as I read; Heath has a way of describing every element in his books, but does not weigh the reader down with superfluous words. This book has a large cast of people within it, but I found it easy to keep everyone straight without “brain strain”. When holding conversations, the people are recognizable and their word usage fits their profile.
I believe this to be the first of a three-part set and this first book does not end with a full resolution. I understand why it was stopped at that point. It takes in a large number of people who have a goal, probably an inimical one to huge numbers of other people, but I do not trust myself to guess what it might be. I like surprises! I do not mind at all waiting for book two. After reading previous books by this author, I know my patience will be hugely rewarded in the end.
If you are still not sure if you want to try this book, try one of his stand-alone books. You will come back to this one after devouring the great read you will find in any of his previous books! I enjoyed this book, it read quickly for me, and I know the next two are going to add up to a super-duper adventure! This has my recommendation all the way! Enjoy it for yourself!
You are so rich that you can do anything except – well, now: avoid being bored, live forever, things like that.
So you get together with others in your rarefied range, and set up a nasty little game to play together to get your blood running, or spilling.
This book is the bloody result. I enjoyed it, in a hold-your-breath, ouch! kind of way, and I really want to know what happens next.
It is that kind of book. You will enjoy it, unless you are one of the not-rich people in the story, but that's life, isn't it?
This is a compelling story with a twist every now and then to keep the suspense of the hunt for the bad guy/girl.
Very good reading, draws you in real quick. The characters are very believable, the plot has you hanging on. Can't wait to read the 2ND BOOK.definitely recommend to anyone who likes a fast-paced novel.
