If you’ve read my previous reviews, you know I’m not the one to provide a synopsis of sorts, or write about the usual aspects of storytelling.
What matters most about the book, the essence of it, is the after taste, the way it makes you feel after having read it.
Is it worth it? Do you recommend it? Would you read it again?
The Genie Hunt by M.C. Tuggle is a short, fast read. The supernatural adds an interesting twist to a classical suspense storyline.
The main character, Buddy Vuncannon, is tasked with figuring out what the hell actually happened. He has to unravel the way the events actually unfolded.
This novel makes for an enjoyable read. Imagine reading the script for a popular TV show. Something like that.
Yeah, I guess that is the right word.
A good, fast read, worth your time, especially if you enjoy the usual mystery with a bit of the occult thrown in there for good measure.
The Genie Hunt is available as an e-book on Amazon.
