PaperBack: “Manhunt”

Part of a series honoring the late author and blogger Bill Crider.

Manhunt, by Donald MacKenzie (Popular Giant, 1958). Originally published in Great Britain in 1956 as Nowhere to Go, this novel focuses on “a criminal who escapes from jail and attempts to recover his stashed loot but is shunned by the criminal community and hunted by the police.” It was released a year later in the States as Manhunt. Director Seth Holt brought MacKenzie’s story to the big screen in 1958 under its original title. Cover art by Harry Schaare.
