Hunted Down is a very nice, gripping and well written story by Charles Dickens. Indeed it is a detective story, but sadly it is the only story in this book; for some reason the title is misleading.
Chief Manager of a Life Assurance office, relates a fascinating story of fraud, betrayal, murder and love that is written in the realistic and at times brutal style of Charles Dickens. Although this cat and mouse detective story is very different from the author's other works, it provides a vivid, insightful approach on the 'best and worst' of Dickens society. The story is relatively short, about fifty pages, but it is definitely worth reading.
A note on the Kindle edition: This was the first Kindle book I read and I was shocked by the fact that there are some errors. Other then that, it was extremely easy to download and a pleasure to read.
