With the in and out of care, abandoned at birth life that Nicky Nelson has had it is little wonder that he is a damaged loner with a record of violence. A letter which he receives after the death of his last social worker starts him on a path that leads him to some resolution in his life, but not before he has suffered and transgressed further and drawn the late social worker’s daughter into his troubled world.
This is a well structured quick read that keeps the reader on board and in suspense from start to finish. The scenes of sexual abuse in the foster home are tactfully handled and so is Nicky’s infatuated aberration in Chloe’s bedroom. Dealing with grief and loss is far more in the forefront of the tale.
Not for every reader, but worth promoting amongst thoughtful types.
