Open Season
Piatkus, London, 1989. Set against the cold winter landscape of Vermont, a terrifying game of violence and vengeance is set in motion by a series od seemingly unrelated assaults - and a very bloody murder. The mayhem begins the evening a frightened elderly widow shoots a midnight intruder in self-defence, only to have the police discover the man was deliberately set up by an anonymous ski-masked killer. Several other assaults follow, paralysing the town of Brattleboro. Police lieutenant Joe Gunther realises the victims were all jurors in the Kimberley Harris murder trial three years back. Someone, Gunther suspects, wants the case reopened - very badly. But who? And why? As Gunther digs furher, several attempts are made on his own life, and the Battleboro police department becomes immersed in a manhunt, badly straining its limited resources and experience. Realising that he is in a race against time, Gunther struggles to unravel the deadly puzzle as Ski Mask scents and stalks his ultimate quarry. Open Season signals a fresh, exciting voice in the mystery genre. A breathtaking drama so compelling that the pages will almost turn themselves, it is a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats all the way to the novel's surprising climax. Some slight edge wear to the dj and a little light creasing to either end of the spine, otherwise in excellent condition; not price-clipped; now protected inside a cover. Some faint pink stains to reverse of dj (cause unknown); not visible from outside. Pages clean, tight and unmarked.
