Allan Hudson's eBook The Shattered Figurine shows that a good mystery-thriller can be written in the short fiction format. Of course, the timeline is condensed to move the story along quickly, but all the action is here, and action is what Mr. Hudson excels at. Detective Jo Naylor and her partner Detective Constable Adam Thorpe are given the green light to go rogue and find a trio of killers who are out to kill them as well. Can't buy a better thrill for the price of a coffee and a donut! ...more

Well, I just finished your book.. you've described it so well, I could very much feel the emotions that goes along with most incidents... I enjoyed the humorous parts too, a few surprises also! I love detective movies/books.
The chilling ending suggests another follow up book.. would that be an accurate guess?
Thanks so much for enjoying the share of your imagination, I thoroughly enjoyed Shattered Figurine! ... stay with it, you certainly have the talent 👏👏👏 Cheers 🍷🍾🍷

Shattered Figurine examines one of the worst revelations a police detective might uncover, and how it leads to actions that send that officer into exile. Allan Hudson is not frightened to look into the complex, dark, evil side of humanity but he equally shines a light onto those who try, however difficult, to do something about it, to make this world a better place.

I never get bored when reading an Allan Hudson book. Shattered Figurine is no exception. I enjoyed the development of the story. Especially the characters, both physically and emotionally. Bonus was reading the scenes and knowing where they all were...except the cemetery.
Keep on writing, Allan. You remain fascinating.

Fantastic read. Allan is a great wordsmith to say the least. For such a small book, it packs a heck of a wallop.

A page turning crime thriller, with enough twists and turns to keep a reader’s imagination on edge, anticipating the next move. Now I’m curious about what Det. Naylor might be up to in book 2.

Our Review

The opening chapter presents the detective, Jo Naylor, with a very important question. One she didn’t really want to answer but knows she must.

The next chapter, one year later, hits you square in the face with full on complicated and violent action as we discover what this story is all about.

Shattered Figurines is a surprisingly unusual detective story in that it doesn’t follow the usual plotline for this genre and the characters aren’t run of the mill either. The author has captured a

Shattered Figure by Allen Hudson hooked me within the first few pages. Detective Jo Naylor’s plight with her father immediately intrigued me. The scenes move quickly and I enjoyed the chase for three criminals’ intent on inflicting pain and suffering on the detective for the crimes of her father.

The story is written in omniscient present tense with the characters dialogue in past tense which was new for me. After settling into the story I became accustomed to the author’s voice. If you’re looki
