The book kept me engrossed throughout. Brilliantly written.
Makes you wonder what people are capable of when struck with one emotional thump after another.
There are areas in the read where you're holding your breathe willing Julian to succeed in his escape & just when you think he's made it through by the skin of his teeth the author hits you with another gripping dilemma threatening capture.
It's all very tense & exciting stuff drawing you right there into the story with him.
Switching back & forth from before the tragedy to the aftermath worked extremely well. Just the right amount of pages worth for you loose yourself in each story without feeling liked you're being jarred from one to the other & loose interest.
I've had this on my kindle a while, almost a year. Had I've known what a cracking story was within i would have started it immediately. Unfortunately this is what happens when you download a handful of free books together. Still the joy of finding it randomly while seeking a fresh read has enriched my last 24hrs.
A fine piece of writing & unusual but thrilling read. Recommended.
I won’t give anything away as this is not quite what you expect from this learned man having read the first few pages. Then again, preparation is everything as is forethought. This is such a well described book that you can picture Julian on his “adventure”. From sitting on a rock looking out into the Peak district or to sitting in the pub getting the worse for wear with an old school friend. One loose comment that he remembers weeks later has set off a chain of events to change things irreparably. I devoured this book and like a good wine it slipped down very easily. You sympathise with Julian’s loss, admire his planning but wonder what has gone on in his mind whilst simultaneously thinking “would another person do that?” I don’t want to give anything away so can’t say too much other than give this a go- you won’t be disappointed.
There can't be many better value ways to spend an evening on your own than a couple of beers and Bolt-hole on your Kindle for 77p. It is a hard book to review without giving too much away and risking spoiling it. Suspense builds very quickly and is maintained so that once you are a few pages in there is never any question of not making it to the end. And, of all the things, you find yourself rooting for a brutal murderer! Full review at: http://stevek1889.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/sheffield-novels.html
Cannot believe this is A.J. Oates' first novel, can thoroughly recommend and I am looking forward to the next one.

I really enjoyed this book - the main character sucked me in. I really felt for him, even though I abhorred his actions - kudos to the author for that alone..Published 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
A decent story with good local knowledge of the Sheffield area.
Ending seemed a little rushed and incomplete but otherwise a decent read.
Liked this book a lot. Was rooting for Julian all the way, a man out for revenge for the murder of his family and parents. The story was well told in past and present. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Kindle Customer

I did not enjoy this book. To be fair this is not my usual choice of reading material. I chose this book because it had good reviews, was reasonably priced and relatively short. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Knotted Rose
