When an unthinkable act of treason and a clandestine pact threaten to redraw the map of the Middle East, Peter Savage becomes both hunter and prey.
A free-lance hacker uncovers top-secret files about a government cover-up surrounding the 1967 Six-Day War and triggers a murderous rampage at a resort town in Central Oregon. When the files inadvertently land in the possession of Peter Savage, he is targeted by assassins from both sides of the Atlantic and implicated in murders he didn’t commit. As the body count rises and with nowhere to turn, Savage makes a desperate decision: he draws his pursuers to the Cascade Mountains, where he plans to leverage the harsh terrain to his advantage. Doggedly trailed by both law enforcement and a small army of battle-hardened assassins, Savage becomes both hunter and prey. With his own fate uncertain, Peter Savage fights overwhelming odds to reveal the truth before full-scale war engulfs the Middle East.
Books with a military theme are soon becoming my favorite. It is an exciting, thrilling genre but only if it is written by somebody has researched the military in extensive detail! That is why Hunting Savage is now one of my favorite military books of all time as well as one of my favorite political thrillers. It is apparent to the reader from the get-go that Edlund, the author of the novel, has researched the themes in this book as well as add a great amount of knowledge into his writing. I loved how Edlund submerges the reader into the military life as well as what happens with Government agencies… what is even better is that he adds so much detail to these themes, even down to the smallest details from guns to bullets and so on. My point is that I have fallen madly in love with Edlund’s thrilling narrative and implore all of you lovely readers to read this engaging story.
Hunting Savage follows the protagonist of the novel, Peter Savage, Savage (get it? Hunting Savage?) is a man who has got himself in a bit of a pickle. He started to poke around in a murder investigation after the Police had approached him asking why the company only his bullets make were found in the body of two murder victims. Savage is a man who cannot sit back and do nothing and so, he starts to look around himself and when he does he makes some shocking discoveries that include Top Secret Government Documents and conspiracy theories of Israel being involved with a US Government official. As I said, Savage had no idea what he was getting into… how would you even know? But now, Savage is in the midst of crossfire and so he is going to need to hide to avoid deadly fire, he is alone with only his devices and this is the premise of this incredible, action-packed tale.
The story of Hunting Savage is electric; the plot itself is full of suspense with an elaborate conspiracy and these two factors, combined with the novels intriguing cast of characters make this a sensational read that demands to be read. If you love reading books that feature conspiracies, as well as weaponry systems, survival… particularly in the wilderness and politics between two opposing countries then this is the book for you! It has all of this and so much more. As well as this, there are parts in which the book goes back in time to 1967 and I have to say, these scenes were brilliant and added an extra layer of brilliance to the book.
The author Hunting Savage, Dave Edlund has a razor-sharp narrative that compels the reader from the very start. His writing and words, in particular, feel as if they are spiked with adrenaline. I got the feeling when I read this book that I need to finish it… I felt compelled and if I did not finish it, and soon then I would be frustrated. I was addicted to this novel and feel so great that I got to review such an incredible book from an acclaimed author!
