Review: Detective (Stanley Hastings Mystery #1)

User Review  - Gabi Coatsworth - Goodreads

It's a debut novel, and it shows. The idea for the main character is a good one, but the writing was uneven, and there were stretches that could have used a better editor. I don't think I'll be reading any more of these. Read full review
