The Last Track – Sam Hilliard

The Last Track (Mike Brody, #1)

From the Publisher:

Imagine if being late meant a child disappeared forever. That is the fear that drives Mike Brody: the man you want, when the one you love is missing.
Mike is more than just a master tracker. An ex-Special Forces operative, Smoke jumper, and now extreme adventure tour guide, he also possesses a unique ability to tap into the memory and emotional state of those he pursues.
In The Last Track, a police detective recruits Mike to help find an asthmatic boy lost in the dense woods surrounding a dude ranch in Montana. An unwitting murder witness, the boy burrows ever deeper into the rugged terrain, fearful of being found. As Mike and a local officer search for the boy, the killer follows them. While the investigation expands, his ex-wife, a well-connected journalist, uses her contacts to unravel the truth behind the murder.
Her discoveries threaten to snare them all in a treacherous conspiracy . . .

My thoughts:

I won this book as a first read on goodreads, and I couldn’t wait to start it. I’m having mixed feelings about this one. Did I enjoy it? Yes. Did I love it? Not really. There was something that was missing for me, and I’m not quite sure what. I read this book in one setting because I wanted to see how it would end. Interesting story idea, kind of a mix between police procedural/thriller and paranormal (just a tad, mind you), but I think the characters were missing something. They seemed a bit contrived, maybe? I can’t put my finger on it. Kept my interest from beginning to end, which is why if there is a sequel I would be willing to try it.
