It’s considered a thriller, but it’s more than that. It’s human drama, gritty and as hard to look at as it is to look away. It is a complex-character-driven story about an ex-con with nothing to lose, a girl who is as crazed for sex as for drugs, the bank teller lucky enough to live, but not lucky enough to be left behind and the agents on their trail who have baggage of their own.
When Charlie went to work that day his biggest problem was his over-bearing mother. Now he’s a hostage surrounded by ruthless criminals with little hope of escape.
This is a dark thriller and they are comparing it to Cormac McCathry’s No Country for Old Men, which I feel is a good comparison. The writing is captivating. The characters are captivating. The story is captivating and disturbing in a way that won’t let you but the book down. Author Peter Ferris is talented in a way that makes you wonder what the hell goes on in his head at night.
