Interesting story

Good storyline. Would have given it 5* but for a couple of annoying inaccuracies. Firstly the author refers to prison officers as “guards”!! This term is never used in UK prisons.
Secondly she refers to “checking her phone” whilst visiting a prisoner. All phones and electronic devices are left at the gate house. Phones are never taken into prisons.
This may seem pedantic to most readers but if the author goes to the trouble of adding this line into the story PLEASE do the research to get it right!!!


Had potential just unbelievable

2.5 * Found parts of it hard to believe in terms of human nature. Lots of Americanisms that weren’t needed, ‘elevator’ ‘cell phone’ etc. Felt like it tried too hard when it could have been a bit grittier and I found it hard to like many of the characters. Good idea though. The potential was there, ended with some unanswered questions.
