...If you like crime or urban thrillers read this short, it’s worth it....

Grace deHavilland is a bounty hunter, pursuing a small-time fugitive she has tracked to a rural town. From there everything goes less than smoothly, starting with the rural sherrif insisting on accompanying her into the field.

Slick, entertaining, a female lead who is hard as nails with an intelligent and well-drawn supporting cast? This short story is a treat.

If there were grammar or spelling issues, I did not notice. Likewise the formatting is spot-on, and I am not going to knock a short story down for not having a Table of Contents. If I saw this on a bookshop’s shelves, it would belong.

Written in first person, from Grace’s point of view, the main character has a distinctive voice which comes across clearly. It is well-written, and the plot flows smoothly and naturally.

It would actually have been one of my very few five stars, but for one issue: 25% of the book is a sample chapter for the following novel, ending with a buy link.

As it is four stars, and a recommend from me: If you like crime or urban thrillers read this short, it’s worth it.

Other reviews you might like:

  • Jack Ryder mysteries. Vol 1-2
    strong characters with good character progression through both books, and some complex and well-woven plots mean these are stories mystery readers will enjoy, as long as they can handle multiple plot threads and non-linear storytelling.
  • A Deal on a Handshake
    For mystery readers it will keep you guessing, but for Western fans, particularly those who enjoy tightly plotted works, this is definitely one to read.
  • The Suicide Note: A Daniel Furrow Mystery Episode 1
    if you are looking for a sampler, the writing is good, the characters have potential, and there's a lot of promise, just no ending...
