Bottom line: is it worth reading? YES!

Most stories, books, tales, whatever you want to call them, fall into one or other of a list of easily defined categories.

Mr Barrett has put a lot of thought and imagination into writing a story that defies such a simple classification. I won't say that it is unique as there may be something similar somewhere that I have yet to discover. This is different, not so different that it makes the reader react in a negative way, rather it draws him or her in to the plot. The plot is very clever and well thought out. It develops at as good pace and has enough twists and turns to keep us interested. The characters are reasonably believable and though the plot takes a few liberties with reality, does not stretch our credibility too much.

This is a good read so settle down and enjoy it.

All about corruption in high places and the young whore, with a heart of gold, that puts her life out on the proverbial limb to right a despicable wrong and the young guy who falls in love with the girl in witness protection who is put into a coma by the muscle man of the corrupt Senator, and the thought transference that takes place that saves the day for the two love birds in the end.
