Hunted has the potential of being a really great book but it fails to delivery due too many points of view as well as jumping back and forth between the present and the past.
The idea of a serial killer with multiply personalities sounds like a great idea but something gets lost in the execution of the story. Readers might find themselves lost not to mention the story seem to stall out many times.
The story has excessive amounts of psychological information that can be found interesting at times but often repetitive. I struggled though this book finding it difficult to finish.

Seven years ago, psychiatrist Dr Claps assisted police in capturing Giacomo Riondino, a man accused of abducting, torturing and murdering two women. On arrest, tests had revealed that Riondino suffered from a rare and disturbing psychiatric condition and was sectioned.
Six years later, Riondino is on the run after escaping from a rehabilitation centre, leaving a trail of bloody murders his wake.
It is now a case for expert profiler Dr Claps and Commissioner Sensi to work together to track Riondino down before he kills again. Time is running out and the killer may be much closer than it seems...
