Overall star rating --- 4  

About the book:
How do you prove your innocence, when everyone believes the judgment made on your past?
Prison governor Emma Harrison befriends ex-soldier Leroy Carter, convicted for killing a drug dealer on a night out, but he's always claimed his innocence. When Leroy is being transferred to an adult facility in Dartmoor, he makes a desperate bid for freedom. All he wants is for his case to be re-opened so he can prove his innocence and re-join the army. Helping to track Leroy down, Emma comes back into contact with a man from her past she never thought she'd see again. Sgt Billy Williams had been with her on a hijacked train a few years ago, but is there a deeper connection between the two of them? Will Leroy ever prove his innocence? Or is he past judgement?

The review --
I found myself making a diagram of the storyline as I read the book. The characters were well developed, but the story had way to many flash rounds  for my taste. The story really picked up about midway through the book and moved quickly to it's shocking ending. I would love sharing the ending, but you must read that for yourself. If you like complex stories and show some patience, then the ending is worth it. Like always Enjoy!
