Murder, manslaughter or self-defence? When Harry agreed to a light spot of arson, he didn't know what was really going on. Then the bomb went off.

Against him are his former accomplices, the police, and the inspector who sent him down for ten years.

More About the Author

VH Folland is a British author with a lifelong interest in aviation and engineering. On a school trip to Kew Gardens most of the class were looking at the plants, and one small child was staring up at the planes on Heathrow approach. A career spanning media, technology and engineering gave this interest plenty of time to grow. Along the way, a spare hour in the day was found to write books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent crime novella 26 Oct. 2011
By Cheryl M-M TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
It isn't that easy to create a story that is strong enough to be a full novel and sell it to the reader as a short sassy novella instead. That is exactly what Folland has done. It has good realistic dialogue, a great plot and likeable characters. Characters that he has managed to make memorable, even in that short spate of reading time. I would love to see where the writer taks these two characters, or three counting the spunky lawyer, next and expect to see more in the future. I recommend giving this a whirl even if you aren't too keen on novellas, I hope it is just a taste of what is yet to come. I received a free copy of this book for my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive short - highly recommended 7 April 2012
By K. Sozaeva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Book Info: Genre: Thriller short Reading Level: Adult

Disclosure: I received a free eBook copy of this short story in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis: Harry's in more trouble than he knows, and he knows he's in a lot.

His freedom depends on covering his tracks, and uncovering the truth before the police do. One person holds all the pieces. Unfortunately Harry killed him last night.

Murder, manslaughter or self-defence? When Harry agreed to a light spot of arson, he didn't know what was really planned. Then the bomb went off. Now he's confessed to burglary, could be on the hook for murder and is desperately trying to dodge a terrorism charge. On his side, a bunch of crooks and the solicitor he's dubbed Ms. Pitbull. Against him are his former accomplices, the police, and the inspector who sent him down for ten years.

My Thoughts: I am seriously impressed at how much story this writer packed into so few pages. Fast-paced but detailed, providing background and character development, this was a great little action thriller that I can highly recommend to fans of the genre. I will note that the author consistently used "passed" when "past" was called for, but that was a minor annoyance in a majorly good story. I'll be checking out additional books by this author to pick up in the future

4.0 out of 5 stars nice story --- 13 Jan. 2012
By Loy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given this book to review and was not disappointed.

Harry is a thief who is trying to go straight. When his money and prospects run out he gets talked into a job. He is going to help blow up a boat.
When he realizes there are people on board he changes his mind and saves everyone.
With the help of his favorite Lawyer and a cop who has been waiting for him to make mistake he figures out what is going on.
Even though this was a very short book it was very good and did not seem short. I would recommend this story and will be sure to buy any other books by V. H. Folland
Good job!!

I received this book free in exchange for my review.
I really liked the story. I had forgotten that it was a novella when I started to read it, so was kind of surprised when it ended. But, very good story and action packed! I wouldn't mind reading more about Harry in the future!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great 18 Oct. 2011
By Karen West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story caught me at the begining but I quickly lost interest. To me the main character was totatly unlikeable. I would have liked to know more about him and his background especially concerning his sucessful brother who is mentioned briefly.

Okay for a quick read and entertaining enough, a good time filler while waiting for a doctor appt. I prefer longer stories with more personal information about the characters.

The author was kind enough to offer me this copy free of charge with no expections of a review.
