After getting well adjusted history repeats itself and he is damned determined to be coming out innocent.
I had wanted to read a different author and had picked this novel up months ago. I enjoyed every single moment of this novel the first time and the second time I read this novel I realize why the first time I was hesitant. The start is slow and then builds up. I prefer these types of books because slowly one gets hooked onto the pages. The past and present being separated by chapters assist the story further. I was screaming for the plot to be revealed again. Therefore, I love this novel. It makes me angry and anxious in a good way. I love being kept on my toes when reading a novel.
