I liked this book and found I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen to the main character. I gained insight into life in the prison system.

This book was an interesting read. I kept wondering about Patrick (main character) and what he was hiding because he moved in a way that suggested he was running from something. He is not a malicious person but certainly has "anger" and "expression" issues. Because of his emotional issues, things come to a head for him. I found myself identifying with the humanity and issues of anger.
