Manchester Vice, Jack D. McLean

“You might suppose I should have gone to the police with these items, and you’d be right.”

Brad is in a bit of a rut in his life. His marriage has been dull, and he’s taken to visiting prisoners to give his life some meaning. But when the prisoner leads him to his journal, Brad’s humdrum life is about to take a drastic turn.

The charm of Manchester Vice is in Brad’s bumbling ineptitude towards things. Somehow, when he botches things up, horribly mind you, they still turn out okay for him. Mostly. Jack warns readers in the blurb that this isn’t for the faint of heart, and at times, that is apt. You’re never sure what Brad’s going to do. His bumbling makes him an endearing character amidst all the amusing folly. Overall, an enjoyable read; nicely done.

Read and like this review on Goodreads and Amazon.

Manchester Vice is available on Amazon for $2.99, it’s enrolled in KU.

About the Book:

After a dramatic change in character, a rather usual middle-aged man begins carrying out a series of rather unusual murders.

Meanwhile Brad Shape, a crime beat reporter for the Manchester Daily News, is looking for the big scoop to revive his flagging career – and his crumbling marriage.

But when he finds one of England’s most notorious serial killers, it will be Brad’s biggest break… in more ways than one.

Note: this taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller is not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned.
