Where to start? Where to begin? I'm not one to give away too many details about a story, or attempt to spoil anything, so I'll keep this about Mr. Fingers Murphy and his writing as much as possible. I just finished reading this a moment ago, and I'm filled with mixed emotions. The protagonist is someone that you know. It is as if he is a friend of yours sitting next to you, sharing small portions of his life. The protagonist narrates you along throughout portions of his life leading up to why he is in prison. I love how believable the story is. It is like you know this person. I could relate to a good amount of the feelings, thoughts, emotions and even some of the events in the story. Fingers Murphy has done a great job of putting this into "chunks." Fingers doesn't overwhelm you with one long dragged out story where you feel like you're collecting pieces to a never ending puzzle.

I found that he hasn't tried to show off his knowledge of words by constantly throwing out huge and even archaic words that require me to make good use of my dictionary on my Kindle every 45 seconds, the way I have seen some authors do. I feel like his style of writing levels the playing field for different levels of readers. He does an excellent job with explaining everything and telling you just what you need to know, eliminating any possible confusion. He steadily built towards an amazing climax that has left this audience wanting more.

Fingers Murphy amazed me with his writing. Everything flowed extremely well. Personally, from a writer's perspective, it makes me wonder how much time he invested writing this novella. The editing, his grammar, the length, the story--everything just seemed so perfect. It's really impressive. Fingers, you are a very talented and skilled writer. I hope to see you topping some best sellers charts in the nearby future.

And by that I mean not only the vehicle through which the story is told, the prisoner as he relates to the prison shrink, but also the incredible language skills with which Mr. Murphy is blessed. The guy can turn a phrase like no one else I know. He has a knack for picking exactly the right word at the right time almost always conveying an almost perfect image of his characters and the circumstances in which they find themselves. His other three books are very good, although $200 and a Cadillac comes up short a time or two in developing its characters, but this one is great. In fact, it's almost too good to be fiction. I find myself desperate to know just what happens after our protagonist and his father drive away from the prison. Does our hero turn his life around? Does he get his GED and go on to college? Are parts of this autobiographical? Certainly the conviction and prison time are not (Murphy's bio says he's a lawyer), but I wonder if other portions of the story may be. Life has a way of being stranger than fiction, and Murphy has the word skills to turn life into great fiction. I'm sure this is not intended to be a series, like Ollie Olsen, but it would be fascinating to know what happens to these two.

Certainly much more than just something to read while sitting in an airport wasting time waiting for planes that are always late. If the order in which his books have been "published" is the order in which they have been written, Murphy is progressing as an author, and certainly has me waiting for whatever comes next. His blog says he's putting aside the third installment of the Ollie Olsen series for the next book he wants to write. I can't wait.

Bec's Review

This is a novella as opposed to a novel, which makes it a short read dealing around the question of what would drive a person to kill. When we are introduced to the unnamed protagonist we know little about him, beyond his being in prison. But slowly the layers are peeled back and we learn the true nature of the crime he committed and, finally, who his victim was. It was the suspense leading up to finding out the victim, something which takes most of the book, which had me turning page after page, ultimately finishing this in one day.

Mystery is a powerful tool in this book. As you are introduced to many of the characters in our protagonists life you are also left wondering if they were the one he killed. Did he snap at his dad after being pushed too far? Or was a drunken fight the cause of his imprisonment? These questions and more plague your mind as you intently focus on the characters involved and how they interact through the retelling, an intense focus you would not have if you came into the story knowing the victim. The mystery of the victim is what makes this book so interesting.

Read this book if you like mystery, particularly trying to piece together clues and solve it before the big giveaway. You may solve this one, but then you may also be left astounded as I was.

This is a short, powerful read. It explores a complicated, violent relationship between a son and the only father he's ever known. There were moments when I cringed, as some of the incidents in the book were downright painful for me to read--I suppose anyone whose ever struggled to come to terms with their relationship with their parents might feel the same way. I look forward to reading more of Murphy's writing.
