A young girl is snatched in broad daylight from outside her school and later found brutally murdered and hanging from a tree.
When recently retired San Francisco Police Inspector, Bob Farrell, sees this on the news, he realises his worst nightmare has just come true. The same brutal killer a government agency stopped him from putting away twenty years before is once more on the loose.
As the killer wreaks a trail of blood and destruction across North America, Bob Farrell teams up with rookie cop Kevin Kearns and sets out to track down their lethal prey.
But Farrell & Kearns are not playing by the rules any more than the killer is, and soon the FBI have all of them in their sights…
A visceral and heart-wrenching cross between No Country For Old Men and Silence of the Lambs, this is an exhilarating debut from a thrillingly authentic author.

Praise and Reviews:
“With Wounded Prey, Sean Lynch delivers a hell for leather, wild ride of a debut with the “been there done that” authenticity that lifts it above other thrillers. I just added Farrell and Kearns to my short-list of favourite characters, and Vernon Slocum to my worst nightmares! Think ‘First Blood’ meets ‘No Country For Old Men’.” — Matt Hilton, bestselling author of the Joe Hunter series.
“With its smooth prose, plausibly flawed characters and brilliant central villain, Wounded Prey is a welcome addition to the crime landscape. Its a read-in-one-sitting kind of book, and promises great things for Lynch down the line. If you’re looking for the new Michael Connelly – a big thriller with heart, plausibility and sense of grounding that few other writers can match – then you’re really going to want to keep an on Lynch. He keeps this up, he’ll be a big part of the next generation of thriller writers.” — Russel D McLean in Crime Scene Scotland.
“It’s not too uncommon to find a good novel, but it is more rare to come upon a novel as absorbing as this one, where reading it causes the external environment to drop away and time to pass without noting it. “Wounded Prey” is a very disturbing, graphic, violent, terrifying novel; but it is a novel that deserves a wide readership. Author Sean Lynch has the background in law enforcement to know the nature of his plotting; but even more importantly, he is an excellent writer. I consider it not just worth the initial reading, but worthy of re-reading as well. I look for more from author Sean Lynch, as he has become a must-read author for me.” – Mallory Heart Reviews.
“WOUNDED PREY is a non-stop thrill ride of a book. Unrelenting, brutal, scary, and at times skin-crawling in its depiction of atrocious crimes. And yet it is also funny, warming and believable.” — Tony Healey.
