e-Book review of Manhunt
Manhunt, written by Jack Holbrook, is the first of a series of novellas featuring Detective Constable Alexandra Bertolissio of the Queensland Police Service. Alexandra has a number of family issues and is undervalued in her job. In Manhunt, the detective is assigned to the murder of a young woman. After a second murder, Alexandra becomes suspicious of a young man seen close to the murder site and requests a search warrant of his premises, only for her employer to accuse her of being unreasonable…
Having never read an e-book before, I wasn’t sure of what to expect. However, I thought the writing was mostly excellent. In particular, Robert’s character is well-placed from the start. The author convincingly shows the reader the two sides to Robert, painting a picture of a highly complicated, potentially dangerous individual. The tension builds up steadily, leading to a frightening showdown at the end.
I would certainly recommended this novella.
