At the age of eighteen, a young man is convicted for the murder of a woman during a robbery and sent to a high security prison. Twenty-five years later, he is finally set free, a changed man painfully entering a changed world. He emerges into a society that has grown unfamiliar and corrupt, his many years inside prison leaving him unprepared for the world beyond the gates.

Unsure of the new rules of society, he is subject to the hidden motivations of those around him, the plans that his friends and family may or may not have for him. This is a darkly compelling story of how one man struggles to mend the gap that his crime and incarceration have torn in his life, coming to grips with the hole gouged in his personal universe.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Abby Jean | 2/11/2014

    " warning: this book is pretty sad. nobody gets redeemed or turns things around and although there's some "finding beauty and comfort in what you have" ness, there's not a lot of hope in it. also beware themes/depictions of animal cruelty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mandy Bryant | 1/29/2014

    " One of my top ten favs! Along with her "A Dangerous Woman." A story of redemption of sorts, it's a great character sketch of an ex-convict who comes to matter to some. And that's enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kris | 1/17/2014

    " The characters in this book (accomplice to murder released from prison after 25 years, his awful brother, a woman who loves him for no apparent reason, the daughter of a drug addict who lives next door) were a little bit too pathetically real...it made me feel bad to read about them. I skimmed through part of the middle, the story moved verrrrry slowly. "

    " read it at the beach and found it to be interesting although is a little slow in some parts. "
