This mass market paperback is a "do-over" of the authors' "Sweater Letter" (trade paperback 2002). The good news is that there are pictures now. This reviewer is a frequent consumer of the genre and oft states that readers want/need to SEE the principals, locale and crime scene. I am just happier than a Bambi who escaped the headlights to see that we can now see them. The bad news is that, except for updated updates in the Epilogue, the text appears to be unchanged. So, still missing are the cogent, coherent background biographies of the principals found in the caliber of Rule, Olsen, Olsen and Pence. It is suggested to aspiring writers in the genre that if you are going to introduce a cast of thousands, or even a cast of many, please incorporate an index at the end so the reader is not head-scratching "Where have I heard this name before?" or having to add further details to the chart/bookmark described below.Read more ›
One of the best things about this book is its portrait of life in the Upper Peninsula ("The U.P."). Outsiders will enjoy reading about the rugged people who live in a beautiful, but harsh, setting. Hunt to Kill made me want to visit the U.P. - in the summer :)
Hunt to Kill has an interesting cast of characters. Bruce Moilanen is something of a dunce; his alleged murder plot and his actions afterward are pathetic. The trial features an interesting duel between a novice prosecutor (Beth Paczesny) and a man voted the best defense attorney in the U.P. (Tom Casselman). Hunt to Kill also includes 16 pages of photos that help the reader picture the people and places mentioned in the book.
There are a few drawbacks to the book. The "trial" sections drag a bit because the authors recount information that they had previously covered. I thought that the Distels should have cut the book's length by about 50 pages. Also, the authors do not provide enough about Judy Moilanen's background.
Though not perfect, Hunt to Kill is an engrossing look at a crime that took place in an exotic setting.
