Format: Kindle Edition
When I first started reading this book, I thought that the author was onto something that many people feel from time to time in their personal and professional lives. Being at work and sitting at your desk (at times) trying to stay focused and finding yourself wondering so many things as mentioned here. How many times have you wished for a better life, wondered what else could go wrong, wishing that the upper management or fellow employees would treat you better, etc.
This author has put down in words what some only dream about, cannot or won't voice. The character seems to be on autopilot, going through the motions each day--getting up, going to work, coming home, etc. You find that he does want to be recognized for his abilities, but also does not want to be taken advantage of as his sister does in this story. When he has to identify her body after a tragedy he shows the emotions that have been built up over time and circumstances throughout the his life and even though she made incorrect choices, he still can feel for her life that has gone wrong somewhere along the line.
The author describes each situation, each day with the character by words that make you feel the pain, the sense of hopelessness and even anger building up inside. When it comes to the point of no return, you feel the emotions rise up in the character and finally released due to a betrayal of someone he loved. He is finally feel free for the first time in a long time and before he is captured meets another who knows what he is feeling and understands. He knows she will appreciate her time, family and friends even more after witnessing this tragedy he has caused.

This was one of the first books I bought on my kindle. I heard about it on Twitter and wanted to check it out. The story is killer!!! I think the author must have been reading my mind when he wrote parts of this! I really think this is a story that everyone can relate to in one way or another. I would've paid triple for this novel, that's how much I loved it!!!

When it comes to impacting the reader emotionally, Baker has absolutely nailed it. His debut novella sucks you into its whirling vortex from the first page and spits you out at the end feeling bruised and queasy. And unless you're interrupted by something impossible to ignore, like a house fire or terrorist attack, you'll read to the bitter end in one sitting.

With the beautiful gift the author exhibits, I'd love to give the book five stars. But somewhere past the halfway point, the subject matter became so disturbing I had to skim through it quickly to see how it ended without getting too involved in the horror of the events. I wouldn't call the sex and violence gratuitous, because it's necessary to the story, not shoehorned in for shock value. But it's graphic, and it's disturbing, and if you're prone to nightmares, this is good fodder.

The book is unquestionably well written; the author's ability is impressive, and the typical errors of the novice writer are absent here. It's just a shame that it's not a story I can recommend to my friends.
