Angst, emotion, drama, and anger fill these pages, as a torrid tale emerges. Written with poetic prose and a flow as emotional as the story that is painted, this book will draw you in. With as few as fifty pages, Billy's memories capture the reader, and give them a glimpse of the hell he's trapped in.

Accused of the murder of his wife, Billy is locked away from society. Slowly going mad in his cell, sanity seems to be a fluid concept, as he's tortured by his memories, and the darkness of the day his life went dark. The drama and raw anger in Billy is nearly palpable, and you can't help but keep reading. With a quick pace, the end seems to happen almost instantly, leaving a whirlwind of a story on your mind for days after the last page.

I would recommend this story to fans of this genre and writing style. It's a quick read, that will leave you spinning, and Billy will most likely stick with you for a while. I'm thankful to the author for the opportunity to read her work.

*I was given a complimentary eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.
