A prisoner who doesn’t existA lawyer who doesn’t careA secret buried for thirty yearsSam Williams’ idea of an important decision is whether to have another kebab for lunch He’s spent ten years running away from other people’s pain The Art of Staying Dead is an action packed crime thrillerExpect to encounter violence murder conspiracy and some very scary men that you won t want to get on the wrong side of in this very well written tale of terrorThe author has no problems throwing the reader straight into the thick of it and had my mind cowering in the corner of a room in the middle of a prison riot within minutes of starting to read this I thought that was bad enough but that is only the beginning of the fast paced and thrilling action that will have you running for your lifeAs this novel is written in first person the reader really gets to know what Sam a human rights lawyer is thinking and feeling I felt his character was very authentic and the first person aspect of this story really dragged me into the centre of the actionThis story has a very gritty masculine feel to it so although as a girl I really enjoyed it I do think it would really appeal to men as there is nothing particularly girly about it to put them off reading it My only reason for giving this 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that I m not a huge fan of action However I suspect this novel will gain lots of well deserved 5 star ratings from readers who do love their thrillers with a little action than meI would like to thank the author for a copy of this book via THE Book Club in exchange for an honest review and wish Joel the best of luck with the release of this book

Are getting serious and the pain isn’t someone else’s any Someone wants him dead the police would like a word and there’s nowhere left in London to hide If Sam wants to stay alive he’s going to have to stop running and figure out why If I d known what I d set in motion I d have welcomed nothing with open arms Sam WilliamsDid dodgy human rights lawyer Sam Williams really see what he is told by everyone else he must have imagined In spite of reassurances from everyone that he didn t see a man with a gun outside the prison boundary following a riot in which people died and were injured he isn t convinced Who was the black man with the grey hair and a gun staring pointedly at him as Sam was pulled into the helicopter along with others fleeing the riot Sam s insistence that this was no figment of his imagination is hitting a raw nerve in some uarters as he starts digging for the truth and when his allegations of a cover up hit the newspapers things get worse than Sam could ever have imagined and he realises he should have heeded the warning don t get involved If this was a film I would have been shouting at the TV at this point since we know that when someone is warned not to get involved and they do it inevitably won t end well but then good films and novels aren t born from people doing what logic dictates Good for us then that Sam follows his heart and not his headThis was a great read although it started slowly and took time to get going however once it did it was a real page turner leaving the reader constantly wondering who were the heroes and who were the villains Even Sam himself is unsure at times which side he s helping particularly in the case of the enigmatic Chima Nwosu as the action switches to a little known African country in which life is cheap and anyone is expendable Expect twists and turns a plenty as the plot unfoldsThank you to THE Book Club and to Joel Hames for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewFollow my reviews at
