Reviewed by Alma Boucher for Readers' Favorite

Stalking Justice is an outstanding crime story by John K. Manos. When Larry Klinger realized that the years following his child’s death had only increased his pain, he found refuge in group therapy. Larry became friends with other men who had also experienced the trauma of losing a child. Dan McVie, one of his new friends, worried about his daughter Andrea, who had recently dumped her boyfriend Marco Bala because of his violent tendencies. The boyfriend remained obsessed with Andrea and stalked her. After being served a protection order directing him to stay away from Andrea, Marco assaulted her and threatened McVie's wife Sharon. Larry knew that the police could not apprehend Marco and that he would not give up until Andrea was dead. Larry wanted to stop Marco before McVie lost another child. When a murder occurred, Larry became a suspect.

Stalking Justice by John K. Manos is complex and intriguing. It was a roller coaster ride of anger, humor, murder, and guilt. It was fast-paced and all the action kept me on the edge of my seat. The serious tone of the stalking and murder is softened by humor. Themes like grief, loss, fatherhood, friendship, and stalking are handled with care. I was engaged from the start and could not turn the pages fast enough. There was always a surprise waiting around the corner, and I did not know what would happen next. The characters were authentic and relatable. Each main role-player experienced an unbearable loss, and they did not shy away from showing emotion. Their traumas are portrayed with exceptional sensitivity. The story is brilliantly written and well-researched. It was much more than I expected.
