I gave this four stars because Scott Wolven's stories are excellent. The narrator, though, is loud, tries to gives the characters "voices" - a mistake, unless you're very good, or very subtle - and when reading descriptions of landscape, the sky or the trees or the grass, pronounces everything with a cheesy announcer's flourish, so that you can imagine him waving an open hand to draw the picture in the air: "The skyyy was brilliant bluuue... with one... perfect... white cloud... drifting." You get used to it after a while but the narrator really softens the stories' punch.

This book is quintessential noir, but modern, today. the stories are masterfully loosely tied together, and are all about being in prison. Weather it is Federal prison, or the many prison we can create for ourselves when one bad desition start a never ending trail of consequences that lead to more bad decisions. An excellent book
I highly recommend it.
