Like all the author's stories I have read so far, Paid In Full is written in a style that is so fast paced and urgent that it left me almost breathless - I found it hard to put down. A real honest-to-goodness pulp-fiction read (and I mean that in a good way) that recalls the best of classic gangster fiction. Loved it!

Paid In Full

Martin Garrett had it all, or at least he thought he did. That all changed the day he woke up to a Dear John note from his wife. His twenty years of reinvention and hard work undone in the time it took to read a single paragraph.
If he thought his day couldn’t get any worse, he was wrong. Seems he can’t outrun his past forever, and now he has to pay.
One way or another the truth will come out, that's for sure.
Join Garrett as he journeys into the abyss. A man at war with himself, raging against the world.
