  1. Review by Bridewell Beauties
    Easy “holiday” read with a lot of unresolved issues. No literary merit but well researched (prison and court). Well posed moral dilemmas make the reader question own stand and thinking. Disappointing ending.
    Star rating: **


  2. Review by Morningtide WI – Lee-on-the-Solent
    Half the group liked the book (3 to 4 stars) and half could not read it and disliked it. It is a story of when a young man spends 8 months in prison accused of murder of his long term girlfriend and involves the legal process.
    Star rating: **
