Publisher's Summary

Sonny's on the run. Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates, and absolves them of their sins. He's been lied to his whole life. But then one prisoner’s confession changes everything. He knows something about Sonny’s disgraced father. Sonny wants revenge. He needs to break out of prison and make those responsible pay for their crimes. Whatever the cost.

    Story
    "Compelling and clever"
    What did you like most about The Son?

    The drip feed of information.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The gradual rebirth of the Son and the character of the detective.


    What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

    The perfect tone for all the characters.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Payback takes many forms.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think I could ever get a job as a film tag line writer.

    The Son - Enjoyed book but it is somewhat violent
    There is quite a lot of violence in this book but I enjoyed the storyline.
    Didn't guess who the mole was until the end
    Narration was ok

    Rather too many characters! If it had been a book, I could have kept markers in many pages …. as it was, I should have kept a list …….
