This is unlike any other novel I have read. I mean this in the sense that the authors' own empathy and experience comes through in a dark and compelling way that makes it gritty and honest and leaves you thinking about it long after you have finished the story. It has great characterisation, a good build up & thankfully a well written and rounded ending to the story that leaves you satisfied and curious to read more from this upcoming author. I shall definitely be looking out for Andrew Seawards next title. I hope it's as full of emotion, suspense and undertones of dark humour as some are sicker than others. Great story and a great read.

I read this pretty much in two sittings. It's got twists, crime, and suspense and takes the reader on a roller coaster ride throughout the story. Sometimes harrowing, sometimes exciting. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good thriller with thought provoking content. I liked this writer's style and I found this not to be the typical cliché recovery story but hard hitting and impressionable. I won't forget this unique story in a hurry.

This could only have been written by someone with personal experience of addiction. It's full of raw pain. It's completely harrowing, unimaginably moving, grabs you from page one and doesn't let go. It's wonderful. Andrew Seaward has a great gift, and I hope he's proud of himself for all he's achieved. This book is sure to help those with dependence or addiction problems; please buy it or get it from the library if you're struggling.

After their lives reach rock bottom, three 'addictive personalities' - Monty, Dave and Angie - coincide at a rehabilitation centre called Sanctuary in the scenic Colorado mountains. Their lives are inter-connected by tragedy but just how much remains one of the driving forces of the novel.

This is a hard-hitting and extremely well-written account of the reality of living with a drug or alcohol. Life is grim for people with serious addictions and Seaward isn't afraid to tell it like it is in his acerbic style. His writing is punchy, fresh and cliché-free with a thread of dark humour running through it. The micro details would suggest either first-hand experience or very heightened powers of observation - or perhaps both. His characterization and dialogue are spot on - I'm sure we've all met people like Dexter, and Nick is instantly memorable. Highly recommended though not for the faint-hearted or those who prefer a happy-ever-after ending.

I seemed to fly through this book. Having used to drink quite a lot each day, I could relate to a lot of the things that were said.
The writer works well to make you feel sorry for one addict, while hating another. In accordance with their apporach on life and their rehabilitation.
I wouldn't really say there is much tension built as you can see the outcome of the book a mile off from the end.
But it is a very enjoyable read and will give you an insight to the world of alcoholism and drug addiction.
