Murder Run by John Hunt
Published: Self-Published October 2020
Reason I chose to Read this Book: One of my favorite Canadian authors!
Murder Run by John Hunt is a horror story.
First, let me thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book (as well as NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions)
Kyle thinks he is having a really bad day. He really can’t remember how his date ended up being decapitated, and he really didn’t mean to kill any of those other people. He is just tired, and hungry, and wishes all these people would stop chasing him.
But everything is about to get a whole lot worse.
I have read a number of books by this author, and loved them all. John Hunt makes you believe in monsters, whether they are human, animal or alien. His books make you wonder what is around that next corner. Then he turns things around, and suddenly you are cheering for the monster. Note that I never really cheered for the human one.
Be aware….this one gets bloody (mind you all John’s books get bloody, so….). The plot is good, the action non-stop, and the pace really fast, all leading to a fast read. I probably could have done without the attempts at humor, and the ineptitude of the police force, and the ending, but I still loved it.
It’s a great, fun, gory read.

Favorite Quotes from Murder Run:
“ He was relatively new on the job and excited about chasing down a crazy, decapitating maniac running loose through their town. “
“Small towns. They have long memories.”
“All I’m saying is that some rumours don’t fade with time. Some rumours become etched in stone and it don’t matter if things have changed. To other people, they are what other people say they are. “
