"It's a blazing summer when two men arrive in a small village in the West of Ireland. One of them is coming home. Both of them are coming to get rich. One of them is coming to die. Cal Hooper took early retirement from Chicago PD and moved to rural Ireland looking for peace. He's found it, more or less: he's built a relationship with a local woman, Lena, and he's gradually turning Trey Reddy from a half-feral teenager into a good kid going good places. But then Trey's long-absent father reappears, bringing along an English millionaire and a scheme to find gold in the townland, and suddenly everything the three of them have been building is under threat. Cal and Lena are both ready to do whatever it takes to protect Trey, but Trey doesn't want protecting. What she wants is revenge. From the writer who is "in a class by herself," (The New York Times), a nuanced, atmospheric tale that explores what we'll do for our loved ones, what we'll do for revenge, and what we sacrifice when the two collide"--… (mer)

If this isn't a well-nigh perfectly plotted mystery, I will take the orange bucket hat from the scarecrow and eat it. French creates the perfect sequel to her 2020 novel The Searcher, featuring retired and transplanted Chicago cop Cal Hooper, sometimes with and sometimes against, his neighbors in rural Ardnakelty in the west of Ireland. When Johnny, the ne'er-do-well father of his teenage protege Trey shows up after years of absence, Cal smells a rat and a rat's scheme to unearth hidden gold. The supporting cast of Cal's pubmates, his girlfriend Lena, Trey's family, a Dublin policeman, and even three beagles and two rooks, and the mountain setting, during a fierce drought, are completely absorbing. This writer knows how to unwind a plot, how to go light on the red herrings, and how to check off every box for those who appreciate suspense, mystery, and domestic thrillers. ( )

Has relationship focus like Witch Elm, had me guessing until the end ( )

Edgar winner French’s slow-burn sequel to 2015’s The Searcher underlines her knack for setting and character development. Teenager Trey Reddy is less than pleased by her ne’er-do-well father Johnny’s unexpected return to the small Irish village of Ardnakelty to execute a get-rich-quick scheme he believes will finally enable him to provide for his family. On a recent visit to a London pub, Johnny claims to have spoken up when a stranger asked whether anyone present was from Ardnakelty; the man, Cillian Rushborough, then revealed to him that the village was home to a hidden trove of gold. Johnny’s account is met with skepticism from Cal Hooper, the ex-Chicago cop who retired to the village and became a surrogate father to Trey after the events of The Searcher. Cal’s suspicion proves warranted, and Rushborough’s subsequent arrival in Ardnakelty sets in motion a series of crimes, including a murder, that upend Cal’s and Trey’s once peaceful existence. While this isn’t quite up to French’s best—the gears of the plot take too long to start turning—it’s a pleasure to spend time with her finely drawn characters, and the murder investigation, when it finally gets underway, has impressive scope. This may be a step down from its predecessor, but it’s still a cut above similar fare. Agent: Darley Anderson, Darley Anderson Literary. (Publishers Weekly)

I agree with the assessment that The Hunter is not up to the standard of The Searcher. It's a bit too long (50-75 pages too long) and a lot of the phraseology get annoyingly repetitive. While the storyline was good (not great), the character studies are quite good. It is not as fast a read as The Searcher which I reread before The Hunter. All in all a good story worth the read. ( )

[The Hunter] is a sequel (or next in series?) to [The Searcher] and continues the story of Cal, an American police officer who retires to a small town in Ireland, and Trey, a teenage girl with a troubled family life. The two develop a father/daughter relationship, but their relationship is threatened when Trey's deadbeat father comes back to town with a business acquaintance and a scheme to con the town out of money with a convoluted plan to searching for gold on their land.

French is a great writer. She throws is fantastic character details and knows how to create complex relationships and manage plots with a lot of characters. But I never really connected with this book. I found the plot ridiculous and, even though I appreciated the writing, I really stopped caring about the characters. I hate to say it, because I still consider Tana French one of my favorite authors, but this series isn't working for me. I loved the Dublin Murder series and I've liked her standalones. I will probably continue reading anything she writes, but I'm not quite as excited as I used to be. ( )

This isn’t really a classic mystery, though there is a murder and a police investigator; and it’s not what I’d consider literary fiction. It’s kind of like the second season of a PBS Masterpiece program set in Ireland. Workmanlike, and not interested in subverting expectations, or creating anything difficult or ugly or genuine. This one was a bit boring, to be honest. ( )
