If you think about a short story, the author has to be pretty good to capture your imagination and get you involved with either the characters or plot due to the limited of nature of words he or she has with these parameters. Jack Erickson does a good job of that, as I found myself able to quickly get into it and realized my heart rate increased a little bit as the action heated up, and I actually started rooting for the main character. The author has a nice writing style and this is a nice quick read, say for about 10 minutes, where you can read something good over your lunch break.

Without a spoiler, I will say there is also a nice little twist at the end I thought was a nice add. Thinking back on this short story, this really could be a full-length novel.

I'm looking forward to reading more from the author!

1.0 out of 5 stars No! July 15, 2013

I'm sorry but the book is far to short to do justice to the plot, for me it wasn't believable nor well written and not worth the effort

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written May 12, 2011
By R. Towe
Format:Kindle Edition
What a waste of time. The writing style was seriously lacking and the end was just, for lack of a better word, stupid. Don't waste your time, there are MUCH better free books out there that will be a better use of your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your time for something more worthwhile. May 12, 2011
By jho42
Format:Kindle Edition
A blessedly short read, filled with the kind of editing, grammatical and spelling errors that make me crazy! Add a transperant plot, and i use the word "plot" loosely, one dimensional characters and an ending that you can see coming a mile away makes this piece a waste of time and resources.

1.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat lame July 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Short, succinct…but not especially worth reading. I should have looked at the page count - 32 pages, and on Kindle it seemed even shorter!
