Tears of a Phoenix, 30 May 2012
Tears of a Phoenix is a story that is engaging from the outset; a chilling insight into the life of a violent offender and the daily grind of his prison sentence - with the unusual and magnificently woven revelation of Jed's heritage that will become his salvation. It is the story of a `lifer': a dangerous criminal that takes the reader on a journey beyond the mundane power games among prisoners and staff alike and into an unexpected adventure. Congratulations to Helen Noble on a powerful and beautifully written debut novel.
