#BlogTour Hunting Evil by Chris Carter

Today it's a pleasure to take part in the BlogTour Hunting Evil by Chris Carter. It's a fast-paced bloodthirsty thriller with a vicious killer intent on revenge.

About the Author
Chris Carter: 'Biographies can be an absolute drag, so I won’t bore anyone with a long life story.

I was born in Brasilia, Brazil where I spent my childhood and teenage years. After graduating from high school, I moved to the USA where I studied psychology with specialization in criminal behaviour. During my University years I held a variety of odd jobs, ranging from flipping burgers to being part of an all male exotic dancing group.

I worked as a criminal psychologist for several years before moving to Los Angeles, where I swapped the suits and briefcases for ripped jeans, bandanas and an electric guitar. After a spell playing for several well known glam rock bands, I decided to try my luck in London, where I was fortunate enough to have played for a number of famous artists. I toured the world several times as a professional musician. A few years ago I gave it all up to become a full time writer.'

About the book
'Every story one day comes to an end…'
As roommates, they met for the first time in college. Two of the brightest minds ever to graduate from Stamford Psychology University. As adversaries, they met again in Quantico, Virginia. Robert Hunter had become the head of the LAPD’s Ultra Violent Crimes Unit. Lucien Folter had become the most prolific and dangerous serial killer the FBI had ever encountered.

Now, after spending three and a half years locked in solitary confinement, Lucien has finally managed to break free. And he’s angry.

For the past three and a half years, Lucien has thought of nothing else but vengeance. The person
responsible for locking him away has to pay, he has to suffer. That person ... is Robert Hunter.
And now it is finally time to execute the plan.

Unlike the majority of Carter's previous books, which can be read as stand-alone novels, this one is a sequel to An Evil Mind. In Hunting Evil the fight between Robert Hunter and Lucien continues, as Lucien sets his plans for vengeance into motion.

Reading the first book will give a certain understanding of just how intense the battle is between the two men, so I would recommend reading that one too.

In this book Garcia takes a step forward into the limelight a little more than usual, and Hunter shows his more vulnerable side. It was nice to see the change in power status, and the way the team goes to bat for Hunter when he is pushed to make some difficult decisions to catch Lucien.

Carter doesn't pull any punches with this brutal thriller. It starts off with a violent awakening and continues that way throughout without mercy. It's a fast-paced bloodthirsty thriller with a vicious killer intent on revenge.

This author is well-known for delivering hardcore scenes, gore and nasty wee criminals to his audience. This is perhaps a little less gory than usual, but it is still in keeping with what his readership enjoys. I think his background allows him to step beyond the boundaries and envision the more ruthless and calculated actions of his antagonists.

Serial killers tend to have a high IQ, one can only hope masterminds like Lucien are not walking among us as we speak. The thought is disturbing to say the least. Oh, and let's ban them from reading Carter's books while we are at it.
