    The author spent 20 years in law enforcement in the US and the believability level in all of his stories and novels that encompass crime is sky high.This novel, like most of his others, once again has as its protagonist Detective JD Welch. I’ve read all of the Welch books now and have enjoyed following his career. To me this one actually comes across as a thinly-disguised accounting of Work’s own career—although I could be wrong about that—and it makes for compelling reading. Welch is now working in the Roberts County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office Jail Division. Still a policeman, but working inside the jail investigating crimes perpetrated by inmates. Work covers a lot of ground, situations, crimes—and there are some nasty ones—locations and time periods that are all in some way connected to men who are serving time or have served time and therefore come within Welch’s ambit.As I say, we cover a lot of ground but one crime investigation weaves its way throughout. It’s the one that opens and closes the story and every time I thought we might be in danger of wandering too far from the central theme it pops up again—a measure of Work’s weaving skill.It is apparently a true story and it’s one that affected me.If you want happy-ever-after endings to your books don’t look for them in Work’s novels. His are definitely reflections of the injustices and inequalities of real life. However, don’t let that put you off. Even though at times the subject matter may be hard-hitting they are well worth the read.

    Here is the definitive police handbook on sociopaths! A rivetting read encompassing the gathering of evidence into a man's plot to kill his wife and then take his daughters away and sexually abuse them.The story starts with a man beating his wife senseless at a camping ground one afternoon and being arrested for the crime by a police officer who is in the next door cabin. Some years later, the plot thickens as Jim Holber plots from inside prison to hire a criminal to kill his wife. However the second man he approaches tells the police. From there on in, the most intricate and fascinating investigation begins, as the police and the Prosecutors slowly build the case against Holber. On the way the reader hears about the dangers of prison where the lives of prisoners and the guards are frequently intertwined. Mr Work gives many case studies in which his protagonist has been involved, recounting cases of appalling verocity.The ending of this - can I call it a novel - it's more than that - is not a surprise in one way but an awful shock in another.A great read and highly recommended. If there were 6 stars, I'd give them!

    Great bookI really enjoyed this book but not the ending. I was hoping for something totally opposite what it was.Other than that it was very well written.
