"In Hunt Them Down , Gervais has crafted an intelligent and thoughtful thriller that mixes family dynamics with explosive action...The possibilities are endless in this new series, and this will easily find an enthusiastic audience craving Hunt's next adventures." --Associated Press

The dark world he's been fighting against has caught up with him. Will his daughter pay the price?

Former Army Ranger Pierce Hunt is no stranger to violence. Fresh off a six-month suspension, he's itching to hit a notorious Mexican drug cartel where it hurts, even if that means protecting crime boss Vicente Garcia, a witness in the case against sadistic cartel leader Valentina Mieles. But things spiral out of control when the cartel murders Garcia and kidnaps his granddaughter and an innocent bystander, Hunt's own teenage daughter.

Mieles wants the new head of the Garcia family on a plate--literally. Hunt has seventy-two hours to deliver, or Mieles will execute the girls live on social media. With the clock ticking, Hunt goes off the grid and teams up with Garcia's daughter, a former lover and current enemy. To save the girls, Hunt will have to become a man he swore he'd never be again: an avenging killer without limits or mercy.

Publisher's Weekly Review

In Chicago, DEA Special Agent Pierce Hunt, the hero of this action-packed series launch from Gervais (the Mike Walton thrillers), is saddled with Luke Moore, a pompous TV reporter, while executing a major drug bust on the Mexican drug cartel run by Valentina Mieles (aka the Black Tosca), "the most powerful woman in the drug world." The bust goes bad after Moore tweets a heads-up to his followers before the raid. The minor injuries the reporter sustains in the botched raid are blamed on Hunt, resulting in a six-month suspension for the DEA agent. Meanwhile, the Black Tosca begins an operation to take over the Vincente Garcia drug cartel, during which Hunt's 15-year-old daughter, Leila, is accidentally kidnapped. To save Leila's life, the agent must ally himself with Garcia's daughter, Anna, with whom he fell in love several years earlier on an undercover mission to infiltrate the Garcia cartel. As a former drug investigator for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Gervais portrays this world convincingly, but readers should be prepared for stock characters and predictable plotting.
