Hunter by Dan Bilodeau
If you picked up a copy of todays Speaker you might have seen the write up on Dan Bilodeau's new Novel "Hunter". Yes we are one of the two local Bookstores mentioned in the article where you can buy his new book, and you will find him in our Murder and Mystery section.
If you haven't had a chance to read the Speaker you might not know that Dan is a former resident of Haileybury, who now lives in Ottawa.
This is Dan's first Novel and it is set in "the heart of the boreal forest" of Northern Ontario.
"A fast-paced suspense thriller, Hunter is the story of the instinct that is man’s will to survive and the transformation and affirmation that will inevitably lead a group of seven men to choose whether they will be the hunter—or the hunted."
A group of seven hunters, including two Americans, embark on a hunting expedition during which their courage, loyalty, sanity, and humanity will be put to the test in a desperate struggle for survival. Haunted by their father’s mysterious disappearance on the very same grounds twenty years before, Canadians Dave and Mark Barrows lead the expedition in hopes of confronting their past and conquering their demons. One by one, as members of their crew go missing, they begin to discover that they are not alone in the woods and that the horror surrounding them bears a past of its own. Nameless, a ruthless killer is watching—studying their every move and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. Trapped in the woods, a transformation takes place within the hearts and souls of each member of the group as they become entangled in a web of murder, suspicion, and betrayal. It is only after they uncover a dark secret that they begin to understand not only their enemy, but also the much larger implications and happenings deep in the forest of Lake Marlow.
