"The Hunter"

John Lescroart's many novels include Damage, Treasure Hunt, The Betrayal, The Suspect, The Hunt Club, The Motive, The Second Chair, The First Law, The Oath, The Hearing, and Nothing But the Truth.

He applied the Page 69 Test to his newly released novel The Hunter, and reported the following:
I’d say the Page 69 test is very representative of the prose and the tone of The Hunter, and would certainly tempt a reader to turn the page – forward or backward – and keep going. And this is my opinion even though page 69 is actually the last page of a chapter, and hence quite a bit short of a full page. But if you cheat (even just a little) and go back to page 68, you will certainly be hooked.
