The Hunted

By Brian Haig (Mass Market, 2010)
New York Times bestselling author Brian Haig delivers his a thriller inspired by a true story about one man running between two countries, trying desperately to escape his past.

In 1987, Alex Konevitch was thrown out of Moscow University for "indulging his entrepreneurial spirit." But by 1991, he was worth $300 million. On track to become Russia's wealthiest man, he makes one critical mistake: he hires the former deputy director of the KGB to handle his corporate security. And then his world begins to fall apart. Kidnapped, beaten, and forced to relinquish his business and his fortune, Alex and his wife escape to the United States, only to be accused by his own government of stealing millions from his business. With a mob contract out on his life and the FBI hot on his trail, Alex is a desperate man without a country-facing the ultimate sacrifice for the chance to build a new life for himself and his family.

  • "Great fun, and the many fans of Haig's Sean Drummond series will find this an exciting, entertaining, and well-written stand-alone diversion." (Library Journal on The Hunted).

  • "A solid writer of thrillers that mix action and character in roughly equal proportions. Haig's portrayal of Russia around the time of the fall of communism, with its juxtaposition of extreme wealth and abject poverty, will capture the interest of readers who favor thrillers with political overtones. Haig has improved as a writer with every novel, and this one is his most polished. Recommend this one as much for its political and economic insights as for its suspense." (Booklist on The Hunted).

  • "Entertaining." (Publishers Weekly on Private Sector).

  • "Brian Haig is John Grisham in an Army uniform." (Jack Higgins, author of The Bormann Testament).

  • "A must-read thriller writer . . . a star." (John Sanford, author of Dead Witch).

  • "Haig delivers." (Houston Chronicle).

  • "A maestro of pacing." (Vince Flynn, author of Act of Treason).

  • "Hoo Rah, Colonel Haig. Hoo Rah!" (John P. McAfee, author of Slow Walk in a Sad Rain).

  • "A remarkable writer . . . Haig combines a nice mix of wit and wisdom." (Nelson DeMille, author of Wild Fire).
