From the Author
Now it's become the central theme of my fiction writing, too.
Like me, the hero of my Dylan Hunter thrillers is motivated by his passion for justice. He cannot walk away when injustices are committed against those he cares about. That's why Dylan Hunter became a vigilante -- why I refer to him as "the new face of justice" -- and why I refer to myself as "The Vigilante Author."
I hope you enjoy HUNTER, BAD DEEDS, and the forthcoming books in the Dylan Hunter thriller series. And after you've checked them out, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks so much!
About the Author
A former Staff Writer for Reader's Digest, Robert authored high-profile investigative pieces on crime, including "Getting Away with Murder," which stirred a national controversy in 1988 about prison furlough programs. That article was honored as a National Magazine Award finalist for "Best Magazine Article of the Year in the Public Interest Category" by the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Robert also published Criminal Justice? The Legal System vs. Individual Responsibility, with a Foreword by John Walsh of "America's Most Wanted," and Freed to Kill -- a compendium of horror stories exposing failures in our legal system. Many of those hair-raising stories, as well as ones that he investigated for Reader's Digest, served as the basis for HUNTER.
Robert makes his home on the Chesapeake Bay with his musician wife, Cynthia, and their cat, Luna (who plays a supporting role in the Dylan Hunter thriller series). He now writes fiction fulltime and is at work on the further adventures of Dylan Hunter -- "the new face of justice."

Some of the most bestial of violent criminals, prematurely (read: criminally) released from the cages they've earned, have been turning up dead in ways and places that suggest a distinct message: "Have you misplaced this?" The police are stumped, and so are the military intelligence personnel brought in when a treasonous double agent is similarly dispatched before their eyes. Thus begins an intense search for a killer who targets killers, and who leaves not a trace of evidence behind.
"Hunter" begins as breakneck action suspense and almost immediately traverses into an engaging intellectual quest, sort of a "thinking man's 'Death Wish,'" but in which moral choices, not chance or simple physical conflict, are the plot's navigation points. Questions of guilt and innocence, justice and the proper objects of compassion, suspicion and trust, legality and morality, integrity and conflicting loyalties, are laid out before the reader as puzzles, woven ingeniously into a drama whose action is cinematic in its realism.
The elegant romance that develops simultaneously, hinges too on moral questions and choices rather than arbitrary emotions and events - something that's rare to nonexistent in contemporary fiction. The central relationship in "Hunter" is not mere embellishment, it is integral to both plot and theme. Into that romantic structure Bidinotto deftly blends mistaken assumptions, erroneous conclusions and tantalizing details of a hidden past, to achieve a stunning richness of character development.Read more ›
At its heart lives an entirely different animal. A classic love story infused with joy and sorrow, trust and doubt, but most of all genuine uncontrolled passion.
Robert Bidinotto, a well known and respected voice in the arena of crime and punishment has taken these elements and blended them into a truly stunning first novel.
HUNTER A Thriller easily lives up to its title. What seemingly begins as another battle in the world of espionage quickly takes on overtones of betrayal of another sort which hits closer to home.
Annie Woods, a special CIA investigator, has discovered a traitor. But what she doesn't know is how this revelation is about to change her life in unexpected ways. Perhaps forever.
Dylan Hunter is a free-lance investigative reporter who specializes in reporting on the often times outrageous circumstances and outcomes surrounding justice system verdicts. And the even more outrageous lack of attention and respect and true justice given to the victims of crime.
A brutal attack on an unsuspecting couple becomes the catalyst for these two loners to meet. They each carry the baggage of past betrayals but incredibly to both, sparks fly , and they soon find themselves inseparable.
But when a series of unusual killings occur, Dylan and Annie suddenly find themselves unexpectedly at odds. Feelings of mistrust and doubt come to a head as they each find reasons to suspect the other is not who they seem.
And through it all, an enemy who is the embodiment of evil, has them both in his sights.Read more ›
A journalist by profession, Bidinotto's writing is flawless and precise. He uses words to create scenes much like an accomplished artist uses paint and brush to create a masterpiece. His characters are three dimensional; they are real, flesh and blood people with true emotions. The story itself is an intricately woven tapestry of details which all perfectly mesh together resulting in a highly believable, suspenseful read.
I thank Gary for bringing Robert and "Hunter" to my attention as this novel is the best in the crime thriller genre I've read in a while. I can only give one piece of advice to you readers out there. Buy this book!
