Editorial Reviews


"Offers fascinating insight, in language both meticulous and melodic, into the turmoil of a prison standoff." - Literary Fiction Book Review

"This is not the parboiled Hollywood version of the prison drama; this is the raw gritty and complex reality of life in prison and the best of its genre that I've ever come across." - Ron Slaven, Hall of Fame Reviewer.

"The Siege offers a terrifying glimpse into the life of a prison employee, the lives of the inmates, and the structure of the penal system in general." - E. Branden Hart, Empty Sink Publishing book review.

"Hanna doubtlessly incorporates his actual experience in understanding the thrust of this vivid novel." - Grady Harp, Top 100 Reviewer, Vine Voice

"The Siege by James Hanna is a well-written psychological thriller with a realistic feel... I enjoyed the fast pace and realistic grittiness." - Sefina Hawke, Readers' Favorite

"A highly enjoyable and well-crafted novel that showcases Hanna's distinctive style of writing, The Siege delivers the best in psychological thrillers and is recommended without reservation." - BookViral (Listed for the 2016 BookViral Millennium Book Award.)
