Hunted Down is a detective story by Charles Dickens. The astute Sampson suspects that a certain Mr. Julius Slinkton who turns up in his office one morning is not all that he seems.

As Slinkton crops up more and more frequently in Sampson's life, he realises that a monstrous crime is about to be committed. But a counter plot is hatched and the hunter quickly becomes the hunted. Dickens excels again in his masterful portrayal of character and insightful description the society of his day. The story functions both as a fast paced narrative which draws the reader swiftly into the story and as a psychological analysis of the most villainous conman imaginable.

Truly gripping.

    " I didn't get it. Very odd and what was the Julius Ceaser about? Also this is only one short story, not a collection. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 4/24/2013

    " The short stories originally published in Household Words were, for the most part, interesting. But the extracts from novels such as Bleak House and Martin Chuzzlewit were not comprehensive enough for my liking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 4/20/2013

    " There were hints of the Dickens I know in this book, but on the whole, he was rather more sober than usual. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nigel | 4/19/2013

    " Very short rather disappointing story by Dickens and not in his usual style at all. This type of detective story doesn't suit him at all and I'm not surprised that this is a little known work by him. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rohan Shedage | 2/23/2013

    " below average stuff to speak.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jan | 8/16/2012

    " Very short Dickens book - but read in such a monotonous way that I struggled to listen to it at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maxine | 5/9/2012

    " I wanted a "short" read and also wanted to read something from a classic. Loved this little book. Short and to the point. Justice is good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasmine | 12/25/2011

    " A little confusing but interesting. I liked the obsession with the physical traits that, because of their excessively normal appearance, gave away the abnormal character underneath. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolin | 9/12/2011

    " Should have read it in one go "

    " Not a good representation of Dickens work. "

About the Author
Author Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812–1870) was born in Landport, Portsmouth, England, the second of eight children in a family continually plagued by debt. A legacy brought release from the nightmare of debtors’ prison and child labor and afforded him a few years of formal schooling. He worked as an attorney’s clerk and newspaper reporter until his early writings brought him the amazing success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. He was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and he remains popular, responsible for some of English literature’s most iconic characters.
