Hunt by Leona Deakin – Book Review

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

The Foreign Secretary is being held under the Terrorism Act. He will answer the police’s questions on one condition – they let him speak to Dr Augusta Bloom.

He asks Bloom to track down his niece, Scarlett, who hasn’t spoken to her family for ten years. 

The last they heard, Scarlett was getting involved with Artemis – an organisation dedicated to women’s rights and the feminist movement, led by the charismatic Paula Kunis.

But as Bloom learns more about Artemis, she’s torn. Is this organisation everything it claims to be, or do they have a secret side and an alternative agenda? And if so, what has become of Scarlett?

The only way to find out for sure is for Bloom to go undercover. But will she make it out safely – or will she become the next Artemis woman to disappear?

MY REVIEW 

Hunt is #3 in the series featuring Dr Augusta Bloom, it can be read as a stand-alone too.

The Foreign Secretary’s niece is missing and the only person he wants to find her is Dr Bloom. Working with her friend and business partner, Marcus, they find a feminist organisation has all the traits of a cult. So, Augusta goes undercover to find out why women are going missing.

Ooh and Seraphine is back!

This is a sharp, fast paced thriller with fantastic characters and a clever plot full of tension that keeps you on tenterhooks. Completely engrossing from start to finish. Unputdownable!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Leona Deakin draws inspiration for her writing from her own experiences having started her career as a psychologist with the West Yorkshire Police and her successful work in psychology since. Leona was part of a team responsible for designing methods of selection for recruiting and promoting officers from PC to Chief Superintendent. Her role was to create realistic policing scenarios – from personnel issues to large scale incidents (plane crash, terrorist bomb etc) – that could be used to test leadership skills. To do this she spent a great deal of time interviewing and observing officers at various ranks and reviewing cases. This gave Leona an insight into the police culture that helps her to write authentic character interactions in her novels.

Leona is now an occupational psychologist and lives with her family in Leeds. She has written three novels in the acclaimed Dr Augusta Bloom series: Gone, Lost and Hunt.
