Karen’s Magic Review
I had forgotten how good short stories are. They really aren’t given enough credit. Partners in Crime is just 20 pages long. A neat short-to-the-point read. When done well like this one, it’s very satisfying.
I was always taught to write about what you know, and I know the author lives in Thailand. Never having been, I enjoyed walking in his steps and, like the main character, experiencing somewhere new. All this, along with a great story line added to the entertainment.
It’s the second book I’ve read from Tony McManus and feel at some point I should read one of his fuller works. I know I will enjoy it.
Tony McManus is a good storyteller, although I guessed how this would end, it was satisfying to reach it. To have done otherwise would have annoyed the reader.
I closed the book having been thoroughly regaled.
A powerful story of abandonment, rejection and betrayal. But also a story of fulfillment, enduring love, an unquenchable friendship and a paradise found.
