What would you do?

Jack Carber was in a bad spot. Betrayed and thrown in prison, he had to figure out fast how to survive, and with no idea who to trust and who not to trust. To make matters worse, he had already gotten on the bad side of The Kennel on day one. But his biggest threat was the vacant psychopath named Adder, whose cell he found himself sharing. And with this one, his best tools for survival, his skills as a con man, had no effect at all.

How would you survive?

Jack faced dangerous enemies, an indifferent prison administration, and an inmate advocate with his own twisted agenda. He was determined to keep himself alive and sane, even as he began to slowly give up on himself.

As long as he kept his head down and didn’t fall prey to the fatal mistake of trusting anyone ever again, he’d eventually get out alive... in body if not in spirit. And that seemed like the most he could expect.

What would keep you going?

A sudden revelation and the resulting puzzle, though, throws his world into a wildly different light. He’s unexpectedly clutching at a glimmer of hope, something more than mere survival, and yet fighting to not repeat the mistakes of his past again. But something deep inside him begs him to take that risk one more time.

Because, exactly how far would you be willing to go to protect the best thing that ever happened to you, especially when it hadn’t even happened?

So. This author has never let me down before. I read this in one sitting. It gripped me and it was very well written and I was drawn into the story. What I didn't like was Adder. I didn't find anything remotely likable about him. Not his finally disclosed sob story, not his character, his coldne...

3.0 Review: The Fence And Then The Trees
Not too bad. I liked Jack's character although I wasn't so keen on Adder. Jack's trials and survival in prison was interesting and intense without being gratuitous. The ending was anti-climactic. I was hoping the two MC's would do some great sting operation on the two people who double-crossed Jack ...
