But when his best friend is kidnapped, Tiny suddenly finds himself on the back of a stolen motorbike, speeding away from his child and the woman he loves.
Tiny has only 72 hours in which to deliver a computer disk that one group of people would kill to possess, and another would kill to destroy. If he fails, his best friend dies.
HEART OF THE HUNTER is the tale of one man's struggle for survival against a corrupt government, a group of bloodthirsty killers and most of all, against his past.
