The Hunted by Mike Dellosso: CFBA

My book hasn't arrived yet, but when it does, you'll get a review! - MJ

For now here is this from Mike, himself! Seeing this, how could you not want to read it?

Hi Margaret,

In the mean time, why is my book a must-read? It's a page-turner that
packs a punch in the theme department. I've had men who are
self-proclaimed non-readers say they couldn't put it down and finished it
in two or three days. For a writer, that's the greatest compliment I can
get, knowing that someone (a someone who isn't even a reader) set aside
hours out of their busy schedule to read my book. Is there any better
testimonial? The story has a little of everything: a town with a dark
secret, a monster with darker intentions, suspense, adventure, and
mystery, sprinkled with a pinch of romance. And mixed in with all that
are spiritual themes I hope will stick with the reader long after the
last page is read.

Thanks, Margaret. I hope that helps.
