Hunting Down Amanda Summary

Hunting Down Amanda by Andrew Klavan

The coast of Maine, a clear summer's day, a 747 plunges into the sea, the witness a small child...On a cold, lonely night in New York, Lonnie Blake, a widower and desolate jazz musician, takes comfort in the arms of Carol, a beautiful woman who has flung herself into his doorway to escape an unknown assailant. For that one night, Carol has given everything Blake has wanted: sex, companionship and, above all, compassion. In the morning she is gone, leaving no clues, just emptiness and longing. Blake cannot forget her for Carol has got under his skin and stirred his soul. He also knows she is deeply troubled, and makes it his business to find out why. The answer is not so simple, for it is not Carol who is in danger but her three year old daughter, Amanda, an ordinary, sweet-faced, dimpled child. Amanda has a gift, an extraordinary ability that Carol is desperate to hide. But others are not so discerning, and will stop at nothing until they get what they want, whatever the consequences...Fast, furious, tightly plotted and brilliantly drawn, this is a superb thriller, up with the very best, from the author of the award winning TRUE CRIME.

Hunting Down Amanda Reviews

This is one of those books that you can't leave alone...miss this one and miss a terrific read INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Klavan's style is hard, unflinching, with a wide seam of whiplash humour running through it that sets him well apart from your regular, journeyman writer. This book rarely lets up its absorbing and hugely enjoyable pace PUBLISHING NEWS A fast paced tale of redemption... an exemplary thriller from the author of TRUE CRIME TIME OUT The inventive and audacious Andrew Klavan never covers the same ground twice and his latest psychological thriller is about as far as you can get from his previous bestsellers, True Crime and The Uncanny. What all his books have in common is a growing assurance as you turn the first few pages that you're in good, honourable hands--that the author won't trick you shamelessly or go off on some tedious tangent. So a book that begins with a horrible plane expl
