"World, Chase Me Down" by Andrew Hilleman is the fiction telling of a true story. Pat Crowe is a scoundrel from the turn of the century (not this one, the last one). During a down on his luck time, Crowe kidnapped a Omaha millionaire's son for ransom. The novel follows Crowe through three time periods intermittently. The author switches by the chapter so it is easy to follow. I am unsure on how historically accurate the author is as I hadn't heard of Crowe before reading this book. But Hilleman does weave a pretty interesting tale. Crowe's character is fun to read. He is always wallering in misery and yet he never gets down and keeps his chin up. Just keeps on going through one failure after another. I recommend this book to history buffs who aren't scared off by a little grit. I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review from www.firsttoread.com.
