From the Author
I knew for this book I couldn't just repeat what had been--that is why the event is so much bigger. As always, there is depth in play.
I trust you enjoyed the first, will enjoy this one and continue on through until the bitter (sweet?) end.

This is book two of a series which, I believe, is to have a third. The first book contained a large number of people, as does this. I was grateful when I saw the author, Tim Heath, included a list of the the old and new persons for this book. Most of the characters are Russian; having this list was a good refreshment tool in aiding my memory.
I usually find myself trying to foresee what will happen next in a story, but I have learned when reading one of Heaths' books I am surprised at the twists and turns they take.
The settings come alive for me, the conversation is short between those "playing", but realistic. The men involved in this deadly hunt are ruthless, but there are lighter moments when I laughed aloud. Maybe it has its' own sort of humor, but some parts struck my funny bone! Was it purposeful on Heath's part? I do not know,but it did ease my tension level.
Told in the third person, this is an easy read. It flows smoothly and was an entrancing middle of this series. I shall now have to wait for the conclusion. It is my prediction the next book will contain an action-packed and twisty resolution.
Tim Heath writes with skill and has own voice when telling a story. He is a master at inserting twists, turns, and teasers to keep me on my toes. I do not mind the ebbing and flowing of tension he creates; it enhances the experience for me. I appreciate, also, the "cleanness" of his books. Yes, people are killed, but I am not forced to wade through guts and gore. Nor must I be bombarded by foul language, although I can live with a swear word here or there. Explicit sexual scenes? Not in this, thank goodness. There was a hint of attraction between two characters in the beginning, but I hate spoilers. You will not read them from me.
If you like edge-of-your-seat books, a challenge to your mind, and great entertainment grab a copy of this book. It can be read alone, but will be a better read if you experience The Hunt beforehand.
I gladly recommend this book to any reader interested in thrillers, puzzles, mystery and and a challenge. Between Tim Heath's storytelling talent and the story itself, I believe you will be well-pleased!
The Hunt The Poison #3 - I had only read The Pride and didn't to get to read the first book, The Prey. The Poison is a cliffhanger! Broke my heart coming to the end. This aside, this is another well written, intriguing novel with a well thought out, twisting, fast paced plot that keeps the reader glued to the pages. The Hunt Series is a substantial read, not to be quickly read, but savored. The reader is immersed in every aspect of the story: the well developed, interesting characters; the realistic dialog; the fast paced, suspense; and the descriptions of locations and events. I have not be disappoint by this author's work, yet.
The Last Prophet - A well written, fast paced, suspense filled with interesting characters and a twisting plot. This is my first full novel by this author, having read The Geese They Lied; He's Dead first. I look forward to reading more of his work.
The Powers of Penny #1 - Even though I don't care for school-age children, this story was hard to put down until finished. A well written, interesting story with realistic characters and dialog. Of course, there's a special power that a 14-year-old discovers she possesses, but she's actually mature in the handling of it as she learns her abilities. This is a good story for all ages. It's a cliffhanger.
The Parents of Penny #2 - A well written, interesting story with realistic characters and dialog. The plot is filled with darkness and sadness for the 17-year-old dealing with her special power and the effect on her family. The family secret is revealed and the destruction of all good begins. It's a cliffhanger, even though this segment is complete.
The Heart of Penny #3 - Another well written, interesting story with more darkness concerning a friend who discovers and receives a gift from Penny. She faces her responsibilities and too soon the story is finished, although a cliffhanger. Paul has written a story that's difficult to put down and has the reader coming up with solutions for Penny, which she doesn't need any help, since she has a plan to be completed in the #4 of the series.
The Dark Side of Penny #4 - A well written, interesting story with realistic characters and dialog. This is the darkest Penny has ever had to dwell in and her handling of all her issues is still at a mature level. You feel what she is living and understand her careful planning and executions to correct her wrongs. Intriguing, difficult to put the book down. The author has a note to check the question before chapter one of each book. I always start with the cover and read them anyway.
The Rage of Penny #5 - Well written, interesting, but very dark. Innocent bequests turn out verra bad. This was different from the other books with the dark happenings that Penny learning the consequences of her powers and the attention she needed to apply to her decisions. The twisting plot keeps the reader engaged in the darkness that Penny's gifts contain.
I contacted the author to review his books and received The Pride, The Poison and the Penny books.
Cherry Picking - After reading three other books by this author, I read this book, too. I found it interesting, well written with a bunch of characters that held my interest. Not to be read quickly, but enjoyable.
The Geese They Lied; He's Dead - OK. Two short stories that evolve around the book's title. The first was interesting, but the second one, I found boring. The second one does give a glimpse of life of a UK teacher teaching in Estonia.
The Pride is the second book in Tim Heath’s Hunt series. It is full of international dealings with Russian oligarchs, FSB and M16 agents, and somewhat ordinary citizens who become pawns in a high stakes power play. Because of the multitude of characters to keep track of (there is a character list at the end of the book), it can sometimes be a slow read because of all the foreign names and each of their manipulations. That said, it had a unique and clever plot which kept me interested throughout. It did end in a cliffhanger which sets up the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
