Publisher's Summary

The acknowledged master of psychological suspense and heart-stopping terror, New York Times best-selling author John Saul now invites you to descend to chilling new depths of darkness - and discover a secret, savage world that exists beneath our very feet. The promising future of New York City college student Jeff Converse has suddenly been shattered by a nightmarish turn of events. Falsely convicted of a brutal crime, Jeff sees his life vanishing before his eyes. 

But someone has other plans for Jeff, in a far deadlier place than any penitentiary. He finds himself beneath the teeming streets of Manhattan, in a hidden landscape of twisting tunnels and forgotten subterranean chambers. Here, an invisible population of the homeless, the desperate, and the mad has carved out its own shadow society. 

But they are not alone. The pitch-dark tunnels and abandoned subway stations are haunted by the unmistakable sounds of predators in search of game. Someone has made this forsaken civilization beneath the city a private killing ground...and the hunt is on. 

Trapped in a treacherous underground maze, cut off at every turn by ragged gangs of sinister "gamekeepers," and stalked relentlessly by unseen hunters, Jeff faces overwhelming odds in the race to reach salvation and elude capture. With no weapon but his wits, and an unimaginable threat lurking around every dark corner, Jeff must somehow move heaven and earth to escape from a living hell. 

The Manhattan Hunt Club is the most thrilling and suspenseful novel yet from the ingenious mind of John Saul.

Engauging from the start...

This is a novel that I find gripping. I have listened to this book during work and found I was late for many breaks. I loved this book very much. I don't want to give any awesome details about this book, but I feel it is a must read if you can find the unabridged version.

I am not sure it would be worth getting this book abridged though. Each moment builds upon the next... and the author teases you into the story. I feel I would be greatly disappointed to hear this abridged version.

Saul makes creepy cool...

The best monsters are the people around you..or should I say under you when John Saul writes about this NYC "Hunt Club" It moves fast and you can feel the grime and creepy underworld in the tunnels of doom.

Star Chamber taken to new level

Great story. Reminds me of the movie "The Star Chamber" with Michael Douglas. Only this one has a lot more action.

Excellent premise.
