Brains. Alex Konevitch, the protagonist of Brian Haig’s new novel, The Hunted, beats his adversaries with brainpower over brawn. Konevitch built up a successful business in Russia until a former KGB employee stole it out from under him. Alex and his wife flee Russia, trailed by assassins. A complicit FBI director cooperates with Russian bureaucrats who want Alex brought back to Russia for “justice” in exchange for the advance of American interests. Haig presents a fast paced tale in The Hunted, which is based on a true story. Every setback leads to another advance, and Alex is both talented and effective as he strikes back against his enemies. While this novel is a departure for Haig from his series featuring JAG lawyer Sean Drummond, it shares one common element: a protagonist larger than life, and in some ways too good to be true. The Hunted provides thrilling entertainment that most readers will enjoy.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
