Martin Legace is a former special ops standout, once recognized as the top field interrogator in the American military complex. His study of the human mind was carried out in make-shift tents on the edge of the battlefield; he didn’t write or read the book on how to break a prisoner, he simply followed his instincts, dissecting human behavior in a way that verges on autism. He had a reputation for getting anything out of anyone – “had” being the operative word.

Mannheim Rex – Book Review

 

Mannheim Rex by Robert Pobi

I was lucky enough to spend my childhood summers next to a lake; I swam in it, lay beside it, snorkeled around it, boated over top of it, and even constructed my own little wading pool on the shores of it. But when I would dive down deep to get a better look at something, I always got a little creeped out as I stared into the murky water where the shore dropped off.

I definitely read too many books back then so my imagination always ran wild with the possibilities of what could be staring back at me. Robert Pobi’s book Mannheim Rex explores just that-the story of a medieval, horrifically large creature that is terrorizing a small town lake and its inhabitants.

You know that shortlist of back-of-the-book keywords that are krypton to your wallet?
