Two criminals are responsible for an innocent man getting sentenced to life for murder. An inept defense attorney and a crooked prosecutor are the other players in this case of egregious American corruption.

The four of them have been lured into a trap in an abandoned warehouse. Someone wants vengeance. This is a story of vigilante justice for the wrongfully convicted. Marked doors lead to four locked rooms, one where each of them will have to pay a price for what they have done. What will they be required to do in order to survive?

This riveting crime thriller puts the American justice system in public view and will keep you guessing until the very last scene. A dark masked figure watches...waits...and wants revenge.

My Impressions:

This was a short story and I managed to read it in 2 sittings, although I could have finished in one.

The plot was the best part of the story. It had potential. It drew you in. It made you want to know more and it made you want to figure out how these four people would get themselves out of their predicament. I was even satisfied with how the story eventually played out.

Unfortunately though, the characters all seemed like the same person. There wasn’t enough description of them to help me to really tell who was talking and when, you really couldn’t visualise it.

The writing was decent┬ábut the dialogue was what really got to me. I reminded me a lot of Mr. Matthew’s previous book, A Game of Greed and Deception. It seemed like the same style of dialogue was used. It was more like a monologue and a dialogue because all the characters just seem to talk to the same way, at time it even read a bit monotonous.
