The author, Robert Menzies, has crafted an intricate plot that rapidly evolves until its explosive conclusion. A well-written, thoroughly engrossing, modern-day story.- Wendy OHanlon.When a respectable and moral man is forced to re-visit the crime he committed as a teenager, his life quickly begins to unravel. Can he find the inner strength to survive? This is an interesting and well-written novel which analyses many of the characteristics of human nature. Robert Menzies has certainly demonstrated that during his long career he has probably seen it all - the good, the bad and the very ugliest of human nature.
