Like so many others, RamÃ³n Espejo ran from the poverty and
hopelessness of the Third World to the promise of a new
worldâ€”joining a host of like-minded workers and dreamers
aboard one of the great starships of the mysterious,
repulsive Enye. But the life he found on the far-off planet
of SÃ£o Paulo was no better than the one he had abandoned.
Tough, volatile, and angryâ€”a luckless prospector
hoping for that one rich strike that will make him
wealthyâ€”RamÃ³n is content only when on his own out in the
bush, far from the dirty, loud, bustling hive of humanity
that he detests with sociopathic fervor. Then one night his
rage and too much alcohol get the better of him, resulting
in sudden bloodshed and a high-profile murder. RamÃ³n is
forced to flee into the wilderness for however long it will
take for the furor to die down.
almost happily alone, RamÃ³n is once again free. But while
searching for his long-elusive lode, he stumbles upon
something completely unexpected: a highly advanced alien
race in hiding; fugitives like himself on a world not their
own. Suddenly in possession of a powerful, dangerous secret,
RamÃ³n must battle for his freedom from alien captors and
also against the hostile and unpredictable planet. And so
the chase begins.
Police, fugitive aliens, and a
human murderer weave a web of shifting alliances as RamÃ³n
enters the greatest manhunt the alien world of SÃ£o Paulo has
ever known. If he is to survive, RamÃ³n must overcome
inscrutable aliens and deadly predators, but his greatest
enemy is himself. With every move in the desperate game, he
struggles to outwit his enemies and solve the mystery of a
murder he himself committed.
adventure tale and character study of a fascinating and
twisted mind, Hunter's Run showcases three masters of
the form at their best.
