Treasure Hunt: 12/26/11

Treasure Hunt by John Lescroart is the second book in the Hunt Club series. It's set in San Francisco at a flailing detective agency.

Wyatt Hunt has been sleeping in his car and cutting as many corners as he can to keep the Hunt Club afloat. Things might turn around if he can stay in business long enough to figure out who killed Dominic Como, a high powered activist.

The reason the Hunt Club is on the case at all is because the one remaining employee besides Hunt himself, Mickey Dade found the body. Not having any active cases and needing something to do, Mickey convinces Hunt that they should pursue leads.

The book reads like an early season of Simon & Simon with some Rockford Files thrown in, except that it's set in San Francisco. I mostly read it for the setting and the City and its neighbors are well described.

The mystery itself is a pretty standard detective agency style mystery. If you like that type of mystery, you will probably like this book. I think I would have enjoyed Treasure Hunt if I had read Hunt Club first.

Two stars.
