The Hunting Wind - Steve Hamilton ... Inn when Randy Wilkins, a friend from his days in Detroit, turns up out of the blue. Finally he gets to the point. Randy's in love with a girl called Maria and wants to find her. The only problem being that he last saw her thirty years ago. It's a test of friendship to say the least and, at first, Alex can't think of anything worse. But loyalty gets the better of him and together Alex and Randy go back to Detroit where, as a police officer, Alex got shot. The bullet is still lodged in his chest. Their search for Maria leads them back to the past - a strange country which is unsavoury for Randy and painful for Alex as they hunt for Randy's lost love and Alex's lost life.

Why is it that so many ex-cops have bullets millimetres from their hearts? This is a fact according to authors of top crime fiction! Personally I don't like the idea of having a piece of deadly metal only a whisker away from my vitals. However, for a grizzled ex-cop it gives them something extra. With the knowledge that they may die at any second they will live their life to the full, staring danger in the face and saying "Back off face of danger". With this inspirational image in mind perhaps I should go down to some of the less pleasant areas of GB and get myself shot? Knowing my luck I would not end up with a cool bullet next to my heart, just dead. . Read the complete review
