I was provided with an advance copy of this book, in return for an honest review, by Bloodhound Books. I usually read contemporary fiction and thrillers (particular psychological thrillers. I am not sure this book actually fills the ‘thriller’ criteria for me.
It follows Ben on his journey through life and explains how the choices he made had actions with consequences and those consequences were time in prison.
He didn’t have a very good start to life and this book compassionately examines the effects an imperfect childhood in a bad area can impact on the future of those involved. This book is a dark journey in the mind of a criminal and through the prison system.
I am sure this book will appeal to many people but unfortunately didn’t tick the boxes for me it lacked the adrenaline pumping suspense that I love. It is, however, very well written with well built realistic characters.
Despite it not being my type of book I have awarded it 4.2 stars as I think I may have enjoyed it more if I had read Lazy Blood first.
