Summary

The acknowledged master of psychological suspense and heart-stopping terror, New York Times best selling author John Saul invites you to descend to chilling new depths of darkness - and discover a secret, savage world that exists beneath our very feet.

The promising future of New York City college student Jeff Converse has suddenly been shattered by a nightmarish turn of events. Falsely convicted of a brutal crime, Jeff sees his life vanishing before his eyes. But someone has other plans for Jeff, in a far deadlier place than any penitentiary. He finds himself beneath the teeming streets of Manhattan, in a hidden landscape of twisting tunnels and forgotten subterranean chambers. Here, an invisible population of the homeless, the desperate, and the mad have carved out its own shadow society.

But they are not alone. The pitch-dark tunnels and abandoned subway stations are haunted by the unmistakable sounds of predators in search of game. Someone has made this forsaken civilization beneath the city a private killing ground...and the hunt is on.

Engauging from the start...

This is a novel that I find gripping. I have listened to this book during work and found I was late for many breaks. I loved this book very much. I don't want to give any awesome details about this book, but I feel it is a must read if you can find the unabridged version.

I am not sure it would be worth getting this book abridged though. Each moment builds upon the next... and the author teases you into the story. I feel I would be greatly disappointed to hear this abridged version.

Saul makes creepy cool...

The best monsters are the people around you..or should I say under you when John Saul writes about this NYC "Hunt Club" It moves fast and you can feel the grime and creepy underworld in the tunnels of doom.

The Manhattan Hunt Club

Gave this unusual story 5 stars for keeping me on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what will come next. This book is full of surprises and one of the best I've read/listened to.

Star Chamber taken to new level

Great story. Reminds me of the movie "The Star Chamber" with Michael Douglas. Only this one has a lot more action.

Excellent premise.
