Book Review: I Can Hunt by Angela Kay

FBI Special Agent Aidan O’Reilly engages in a game of wits against a serial killer with a vendetta. How many lives will be lost before justice is served?

For Special Agent Aidan O’Reilly, learning his balance in a new, but familiar, setting is hard enough. Now he finds himself in the middle of another serial killer case with no seeming connections between victims. When he and his partner investigate a shooting, they discover eerie similarities with an earlier murder.

Determined to find a lead, O’Reilly sifts through clues, looking for the trail to the offender’s identity. But he’s horrified when he discovers the deranged shooter is playing mind games with his victims.
As the bodies pile up, a leak inside their office could derail their investigation. Can O’Reilly bring the sadistic killer to justice before more innocent lives are lost?

If you like chilling cases, tense manhunts, and mind-bending twists and turns, then you’ll love Angela Kay’s heart-pounding page-turner.


My Review

I’ve read several novels by Angela Kay. I really like her writing and the previous book in this series, I Can Kill is my favorite. Aidan O’Reilly is an FBI agent who tracked a serial killer, The Carnations Killer, for 10 years before he put him away. Now there’s a new serial killer on the loose, and Aidan and his partner are on the case.

The main characters are well developed. I like Aidan, especially the way he cares about letting his girlfriend down because of his job. She understands, but it still bothers him. He does have a bit of a problem with the reporter Jordan Blake (understandably), but he does try to not let him get under his skin. I don’t care for Jordan Blake but I can’t help but feel sorry for him. He wants only one thing, which is to win his uncle’s approval by being the best reporter he can be.

I Can Hunt is an FBI mystery/thriller that will keep your attention. Although I had the killer figured out early, there is a good twist at the end. I’m hoping there’s another Aidan O’Reilly book in the future!
