"The ability to find people is a powerful one, but not without its pitfalls. The Last Track tells the story of Mike Brody, master tracker and former Special Services operative. Charged with hunting for a lost young man through the wilderness of Montana, Mike is faced with his toughest challenge yet, as a killer is on the loose as well, and everything lies on Mike's talents. "The Last Track" is an exciting adventure and mystery, highly recommended." --The Midwest Book Review, The Fiction Shelf, July 2010
"Hilliard's style reminds me a bit of James Patterson, both intriguing and creative." --Amanda Goossen --Lit Fest Magazine, New Authors, June 5, 2010
"Debut author Sam Hilliard has created an immensely likable reluctant hero in Mike Brody, and he's only scratched the surface of the character's potential. Though we know Brody's ability to track people borders on the supernatural, how he first discovered his talent and the inner demons that compel him to answer every request for help are only hinted at. Given the undoubtedly rich backstory available for Hilliard to mine, it's exciting to know that a second book featuring Brody is already in the works. It's clear that both Sam Hilliard and Mike Brody have very bright futures ahead of them." --Savannah Now, Book Review, July 26, 2010
