Summary

Elvie McCulloch's sister, Sophie, has been missing for 57 days. She went out for a run - and never came home. Several young women in the area have disappeared in similar circumstances, and Elvie's family fears the worst.

Teaming up with retired detective Billy Hopkirk, Elvie determines to find out the truth. But as the pair alternately collaborate with and infuriate investigating police detectives Anderson and Costello, they find themselves up against a terrifying enemy. Someone they call The Night Hunter.

Disappointing

Have listened to the first three Anderson and Costello novels and given each of them five stars. This, however, can’t really be called an ‘Anderson and Costello’ novel since they are minor characters who rarely put in an appearance, let alone solve the crime. Cathleen McCarron’s narration would be fine if she had narrated the previous novels in the series but she didn’t and it’s not. Audible, please stick to the same narrator when presenting a series by the same author. After all, you wouldn’t go to the theatre and expect the cast to change after the first act would you?

don't buy!!!

I am so disappointed as I have listened to all the other books in this series and loved them. I lasted thorough the first three chapters but had to give up before tearing my hair out. The story is soooooo boring. Shame on the author.

great story

enjoyed the plot but preferred the other books in this series told from the detectives point of view. Found this a little tedious at times.

Perfect audio pace. A thoughtful, gripping novel

I strongly disagree with the reviewer complaining about the narration speed. After encountering the enigmatic Elvie in another Ramsay book, I found it fitting for both the character as well as the overall atmosphere.

Great story, deeply atmospheric with unpredictable characters and interesting twists.

spellbinding - big scary beasts

Would you listen to The Night Hunter again? Why?

yes I would. fabulous reader. so many amazing twists and details.

What did you like best about this story?

the mystery is woven so incredibly well.

Which character – as performed by Cathleen McCarron – was your favorite?

Elvie is an amazing characterization by Cathleen. Cathleen gave her the right amount of oddness yet like-ability.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Big eyes are following you

What a disappointment

Would you try another book from Caro Ramsay and/or Cathleen McCarron?

Loved the previous books in this series. Not so this one. Anderson and Costello are on the edge of the story. The narrator is slooooow.

Would you be willing to try another book from Caro Ramsay? Why or why not?

Since I loved the previous books in this series, I will try the next one.

How could the performance have been better?

noooooot soooooo slooooooow.

Any additional comments?

Make this into a free standing book.
