FREE on Kindle: ‘Life’ a short crime story

Life 368Max’s criminal career has been going downhill since it began when he was sixteen on an armed robbery job with his father.

Now in his mid-forties, he’s spent more time in jail than on criminal endeavours and he’s back inside again.

It wasn’t another getaway driver driving away prematurely that’s landed him in jail this time though. No, this time it wasn’t someone else’s mistake. This time it was his…well, the crack.

He can’t actually remember doing what they said he did last week or why he did it and for that he could go down for life.

“Extremely powerful, raw dialogue, characters you just know are real, scarily believable… She writes like a British modern-day Elmore Leonard; every word is packed with force and gritty with the harsh reality of a life you only suspected existed.” Rob Horne, Amazon UK customer review.
