This book was written by Roy Harper, an inmate in a Mississippi prison. I was not sure if I would even like it (not because of the author, but because of the subject), but I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked this book. I had a hard time putting it down. His writing is excellent, very descriptive and sharp. The characters were clear cut and I could envision them, and the events that were happening in this book. The storyline was interesting and exciting.
If Roy Harper writes another book, and I hope he does, I would read it. This was a great first book.
