Publisher's Summary

Bill Conlon’s lust for a high school girl has caught him a stretch at Graterford Prison and led to his kid brother’s suicide. And when Bill witnesses his young friend Mikey get shanked in the yard of the prison, his guilt comes into high relief. Catching Mikey’s killer would make everything right. Or would it? 

After his release, Bill begins to stalk Deadly Eddie, a former fellow inmate who Bill suspects is the killer. But like a late afternoon shadow, trouble is glued to Bill’s shoes. As bodies pile up, Detective Sam Lanza is brought on to investigate, and he points to Bill as a strong suspect in the murders. 

Meanwhile, Bill’s girlfriend, Louise, goes missing, and he is against the clock to find her before anything happens to her. Can Bill find Louise before she is damaged beyond repair and finger the real killers before Lanza takes him down for crimes he didn’t commit?

Crime in layers

Disclaimer: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. A very interesting book with multiple layers to every character and their crimes, backstory and development. I like the way the POV changes to give insight to what the different characters are thinking, and how they are each justifying their own behaviours and see nothing wrong with that they think or did, which is relatable and reflective of the real world. The different layers of crime went from petty, personal, to corporate, and it is very fresh to watch how the events unfold and how different characters are affected by it, although it seemed to be something that does not affect them directly. All the while, we get to experience the characters' internal struggles and how they manage it or use their external circumstances to help them cope. Narration by R.E. Harter is wonderful for the male characters, I really like the way he represented some of the characters, like the Bill, Louise and Eddie, it feels very suitable and engaging. However, personally I did not like the way he portrayed some of the female characters, they sounded forced and unnatural.

Not for me

I couldn't really get into this book, to me there was too much going on and too many characters to properly follow. Not for me.

There were issues

This was an interesting story but there were issues. The narrator's vocal choices were disturbing for some characters and I didn't always know who was speaking. It made it hard to settle into this story.

The story itself was dark with a promise of redemption that just fell short of the mark. That's not a bad thing. There was a lot to like about this listen...if not for the issues.

Couldn't relate

There's enough suspense to have kept me listening to the end of this story, but my overall impression is that it simply didn't make sense. Plus, there are some serious timeline discrepancies and inconsistencies that caused some confusion for me in the chain of events. There's also more religion in this story than suits my preference. I just cannot relate to this story.

R. E. Harter's performance is commendable. His character voicing is distinctive and appropriate.

"To sniff out the cheese."

Bill was named the Priest because of his seminary training and the help he gave to other inmates during his own twelve year prison sentence. He just one obsession when he was out: to kill the man who had murdered the kid, Mikey, just months before his release. Bill had seen helping the kid as his route to redemption for failing to previously take care of his brother but Mikey's death put an end to that. Bill was pretty sure he knew the identity of the killer, but not any he'd been marked to die. This dark and brutal story of one man's hope for redemption contains violence and murder, conspiracy and kidnap, cynicism and sleezy self interest, ,With the help of a suspended deputy chief prison warden, a bar tender and a suspicious homicide detective who really wants to retire, the whole sordid story unfolds.

Narrator R C Barter tackles the text with exemplary stoiscism. It is a hour novel with plenty of action but still grey and somehow flat. Numerous characters come and leave again, few ever more than names on a page or three and with little or no development. Bafter reading helps give extra life to the main protagonists whilst remaining distant from the others. This is not a selection of likable guys (or girls) and it is easy to lose the thread in the convoluted story. But it is intriguing.

My thanks to the rights holder of I Detest All my Sins, who, at my request freely gifted complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. It was an intriguing focus on a side of life that most readers will never have to suffer, fortunately, but one about which it is both sad and fascinating to read.
