I actually really liked this book. Though, I don’t know why I am surprised as I had to reservations about what to expect from reading this book. I felt Kane’s pain when he came home to find his wife murdered. Life After 187 was a bit scary in the fact that I am sure these things really do happen in prisons. Prisoners forced to fight, knowing that they will never really win their freedom. Author, Wade J. Halverson has written many Kane Silver novels. Life After 187 is the first one I have read. It can be read as a stand alone novel. For anyone looking to read something with a bit more substance than a romance novel, give this book a try.
