Présentation de l'éditeur

Imagine if being late meant a child disappeared forever. That is the fear that drives Mike Brody: the man you want, when the one you love is missing. Mike is more than just a master tracker. An ex-Special Forces operative, Smoke jumper, and now extreme adventure tour guide, he also possesses a unique ability to tap into the memory and emotional state of those he pursues. In The Last Track, a police detective recruits Mike to help find an asthmatic boy lost in the dense woods surrounding a dude ranch in Montana. An unwitting murder witness, the boy burrows ever deeper into the rugged terrain, fearful of being found. As Mike and a local officer search for the boy, the killer follows them. While the investigation expands, his ex-wife, a well-connected journalist, uses her contacts to unravel the truth behind the murder. Her discoveries threaten to snare them all in a treacherous conspiracy . . .

Mike Brody: The man you want, when the one you love is missing.
Some say his gift is supernatural, others consider it a curse. To Mike Brody, it’s a penance. Take Robert B. Parker’s Spenser, mix in a healthy dose of The Mentalist, then roll him up in an adrenaline junkie with psychic abilities.

“A good mix of mystery and adventure, The Last Track will appeal to any thriller reader. A good yarn, not to be missed . . . highly entertaining and extremely difficult to put down.”
~John A. Dunay, Police Lieutenant (Ret. ‘06)
~Police Advisor to Department of Justice, Dinwanyah and Kurdistan, Iraq ‘08

“The Last Track, by Sam Hilliard, is full of mystery and suspense to intrigue the mind. The story captures the thrill of the chase and the fear of the unknown. What kept my interest was the struggle for that we desire most in the form of love, success, money, and complete control. This book will keep your reading lamp on in the wee hours of the night!” ~Spc Amanda Daigle, Jan-Dec 09, Kirkuk, Iraq.
~Purple Heart, Feb 09

“The Last Track is one of the best thrillers our book club has ever read. Chock full of unexpected twists and turns, this well-crafted mystery kept us guessing up until the very last page. A natural storyteller, Hilliard knows how to build suspense and create compelling characters. We can’t wait to go on another adventure with Mike Brody!” ~Revolution Reading Club

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Read 23 février 2010
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Based on a strong buyer review here, I gave The Last Track a chance, and I'm glad I did. Hilliard is new on the mystery/thriller scene but he writes like a well-practiced pro. The plot has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing right to the end.

His characters, including Mike Brody, are believable and well thought out. In fact, Hilliard gives you just enough background to suck you in, but not quite enough to completely slack your thirst for Brody. (NOTE: I am a major Robert Parker fan and love Spenser.) This book demands a sequel.

The dialogue throughout keeps the story moving and the "24" style time breaks that the author used in place of chapter breaks adds to the suspense. This is made for book groups (I'm recommending it to mine), plane trips, beach reading, or anytime you just want to curl up with a great read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A thrown together mess . . . . 18 janvier 2013
Par J. Stroh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I hate to be so harsh on a book, especially since others found "The Last Track" to their liking, but I found it just the opposite for numerous reasons.

Spoilers ahead!!

I had a hard time getting behind a psychic, paranormal tracker for one thing. Getting picture images from just touching a footprint? If that was the case why didn't Mike Brody do that all along the book and find Sean three days earlier? It didn't make sense.

Mike's wife Jessica was always complaining about Mike working too much and not taking time for her and their son Andy. But she does the same thing as he does. She refused several times to leave the dude ranch even putting their son in danger even after Mike asked her to leave. She is just as bad as he is.

Okay, you are in the woods and there is a convoy (4) of Humvees and no one notices them except for Mike and Daggett? And the police detective tells them to forget about them and continue on to the search after she is told about them? If there are roads in the mountains why not set out searchers in vehicles instead of on foot or at least start from the road. Just didn't make sense to me but then again, that would leave out a good portion of the Mike and Daggett hiking through the woods.

Another part was the GPS sending out false locations because they were being altered by a special machine? Sorry, but that part was just plain silly even when the command post knows they are in the wrong area and no one can seem to find them because the locations are wrong. Wouldn't that throw up a red flag?

I could go on and on about this book and the different unbelievable scenarios in the story line. At some points in the book I got bored and almost didn't finish reading it but I always finish a book no matter how much I dislike it.

And the ending on who was the Partner and the main bad guy? I laughed! Sorry, this book was not a good read for me. If you like 5 story lines going at the same time in different directions and then somehow coming together in the end, well, then this book is for you, but not for me.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A captivating and fast-paced thriller! 13 février 2010
Par Cyndy Otty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Mike Brody, the expert tracker, is enlisted to search for a missing teenage murder witness lost in the woods of Montana. Aside from his vast skill set, Brody also possesses a unique ability to see beyond physical evidence left behind from those he's searching for. But those responsible for the murder counter his actions at every end, threatening the safety of his loved ones while an asthmatic boy's life lies in the balance,

From the very start "The Last Track" captivates with a frenetic pace, keeping the reader engaged in a series of suspenseful events. The story itself spans across four days and rather than use traditional chapters, the author chronicles each section by the incremental passage of time much like an episode of "24". As time itself is the enemy, every moment proves important and each event becomes crucial in some manner. It's a different and unique approach and serves to push the suspense aspect of the mystery as the reader is often even more aware of the passage of time than the characters. Hilliard's true skill is definitely in the details because even though quite a lot happens in a very short amount of time, none of it feels rushed or forced thanks to a stunning narrative that is easy to follow and richly descriptive.

By extension the characters are easy to empathize with, appearing as three-dimensional and wholly realized entities. As the main protagonist, Brody is primarily focused on and much is learned throughout the novel of him, in particular his specific motivations for the life he has chosen. Hilliard vividly explores the sacrifices Brody has made and how these choices have impacted his family. A good portion of the novel is also given to fleshing out the villains and weaving an intricate network of nefarious subplots. In fact, there is so much going on at once that keeping track of it all can be a might confusing. Daunting as the vast amount of information dispensed can be, though, it isn't so severe as to alienate. Rather the numerous details themselves are the major draw into this story.

Often the downfall of a mystery is the simplicity with which it is built, making a story so predictable that it's hardly worth the effort of reading. But "The Last Track" manages to keep the reader guessing right up until the very last page by constantly presenting evidence against one person and simultaneously providing clear proof towards others. I won't spoil the mystery by admitting whether my initial suspect was the Big Bad or not because either way the ending was a delightful surprise; one that most certainly lends itself to a sequel.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A mystery read with a few twists while looking for a lost child in the woods. 20 avril 2010
Par MelHay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Mike is on a vacation at a modern-day dude ranch with his ex-wife and eight year old son, as promised some time ago (before divorce) - the family vacation. When they arrive at the ranch something is going on, with all the red and blue flashing lights around. Detective Lisbeth MaCarthy recognizes Mike and tells him she would like to talk to him after he has checked in. Mike has a record of being able to find lost people. His special ability is what makes him an amazing tracker for lost loved ones. And there is a boy missing from the ranch, now lost in the woods. Mike who can't pass on helping lost people agrees to track the boy, even at the disappointment and hurt of his own family.

I found myself liking this read. This book was a good mystery read for me. It did take me about eighty pages to figure out what had happened and what was going on, but once on the right track liked the read. I found myself liking the characters and even when questioning the characters as to why they acted the way they did, I thought at the same time - I could see people actually saying these things to their family members or each other.

The book did have a few twists in it I was not expecting, in the end of the book when the truth played out. But, through the mystery and the hints dropped I found I figured out most of the mystery. What helps give you all the clues is the story telling is from different view points. You get a section of the read from the lost boy, from Mike, from Jessica (Mike's ex-wife), and even from the killer.

I did find at times the story started to drag for me. In this meaning, I remember one part where we are being explained the way Homeland Security has surveillance on all the computers phones and knows everything everyone is doing at all times, yet there is one computer that does not have the surveillance on it. I started to stray with all the details of the surveillance in Homeland Security. I understand the author is sharing the details to let us know the setup and how that person had to do things to get around being seen, but I just started to lose interest with all the details. There were just a few areas with the same issue for me.

But, over all I enjoyed the read and had to see what the author had in store for me in the end. After I read the ending and who was who I thought back to all the clues that where dropped through the book, yes the clues where all there for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An exciting adventure and mystery, highly recommended 7 juillet 2010
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The ability to find people is a powerful one, but not without its pitfalls. "The Last Track" tells the story of Mike Brody, master tracker and former special forces operative. Charged with hunting for lost young man through the wilderness of Montana, Mike is faced with his toughest challenge yet, as a killer is on the loose as well, and everything lies on Mike's talents. "The Last Track" is an exciting adventure and mystery, highly recommended.
