The acknowledged master of psychological suspense and heart-stopping terror, New York Times bestselling 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. Download and start listening now!

    " Wow. It was good. Very twisty! Read it in one day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 2/3/2014

    " This book was creepy - but I liked it!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dorothy | 2/2/2014

    " creepy because it could very potentially be happening. Starts off a little slow, but will have you hooked not too far into it. "

    " I always enjoy John Saul books and have not read one in a while. I was impressed with this one because of how realistic it was. There were no mental illnesses or paranormal activities in this one, unlike his earlier novels and I loved reading about the underground geography of New York. I am familiar with the stations and the areas described (the above ground and "Level 1" parts) and enjoyed reading about the buildings there. I imagine that the diner that Jeff liked to frequent near his apartment was Tom's Restaurant ("Tom's Diner" and "Seinfeld" fame) on 112th street. This was a great read and, although it wasn't a "I-can't-put-this-book-down" type of book, was a compelling read. "

    " A decent enough suspense novel. There was a nice twist about 3/4 of the way through the book that I wasn't expecting. But that twist wasn't enough to make up for an ending that came off as contrived and rushed. And the second twist near the end wasn't needed. Leave the morality lessons to other books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Antonia | 1/17/2014

    " Horrible... Bad writing, characters are totally uninteresting, plot is unrealistic (and not in the fun, action movie, type way, rather just you wonder why teh characters do certain things, or it's just unexplained). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gregory | 1/15/2014

    " Great book to read, difficult to put down. Enjoyed it very much, some parts are tricky, but than so is life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jana | 1/12/2014

    " I listened to this book on audio CD, great suspence thriller about a human hunt club in the tunnels under Manhattan. Very much enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanner | 12/17/2013

    " Great book! This book mixes thriller with the mystery of the underground tunnels of New York. Kept my turning the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 12/13/2013

    " Tight, fast paced and suspenseful. Saul delivers again. Reading this was like rolling faster and faster down a hill. You can't stop till you get to the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vaughn | 12/9/2013

    " i loved it! a suspence-thriller that i couldn't put down, a must read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L | 11/17/2013

    " Another one of our guilty pleasure book on tape selections. It got us to and from New England with few arguments and a lot "what if" conversations, resulting in much laughter. An implausible, suspenseful, over-the-top story about what goes on below the streets in NYC. Entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/29/2013

    " Another creepy read by one of my favorite authors! Makes me either never want to ride the subway or be more aware when I do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 10/29/2013

    " Truly, a great book. Well-written, full of suspense. John Saul is my favorite author and this was the book that got me hooked. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheer | 6/12/2013

    " I did not want to like this book, but I did! Reviting and fast-paced, but not for the faint-at-heart. Keep in mind that this book is about hunting homeless humans in the tunnels underneath NYC. Even though I see this book as a total guy book, I found it intersting and worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/11/2013

    " Very interesting to read about the underground in NY. Not sure how much is true, but it remains interesting. Good action thriller - try to figure out what will happen next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 1/28/2013

    " A little grisly at first, but then develops into a captivating tale of survival:) I had my suspicions about one of the characters, and thankfully I was proven right. But one took me totally by surprise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danine | 1/24/2013

    " Good book, makes you think that this king of stuff could really be happening, read it and you'll understand!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 1/23/2013

    " This book was very disturbing but good. I had to find out what came next. Kind of has a Dean Koontz' eeriness to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/5/2013

    " LOVED this book. Real page turner. John Saul is an excellent writer. Reminds me of the movie "Hostel;" of course the book was first. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 12/23/2012

    " A very twisted tale about the homeless in New York. Very good story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darla | 12/1/2012

    " this is really not along the lines of his usual spooky stories but it was a refreshing difference and thrilling at every turn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jewels | 11/9/2012

    " This one I had a hard time to get into..usually John Saul grips me from the first chapter this one. This one took me a while to finish. Wasn't as captivating as usual. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 11/1/2012

    " This was kind of a "Running Man" meets "Hunger Games" kind of book. Very intense. It included some plot twists that I definitely wasn't expecting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Griff | 9/4/2012

    " So real you find that you need to remind yourself this is fiction. Saul writes so right on the edge of what is and what could be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lacey | 6/3/2012

    " I tried to get into it but couldn't. Not one of my favorite I'm afraid but I will stick to reading his books because I of think he is an excellent writer and even though this one wasn't a winner for me I will still read his stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 5/24/2012

    " Great book. I read this book years ago. Good enough to read again. What I learned from this book. Stay away from the Manahttan Hunt Club and under ground tunnels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 9/6/2011

    " It was a good book and i could not put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 2/1/2011

    " This is one of my favorite reads from Saul. He takes the horror of the real (ie other people) and turns it into the almost absolute dark. I cringed most of the way through and while the ending is a little on the "happy" side- I can forgive that for the ride it provided. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shay | 12/15/2010
