Synopsis/blurb ...

Morgan needed a little help, just something to keep his head above water, but tight-fisted old Uncle Mike wouldn't hear of it. If Morgan didn't get that money, they'd kill him, so else could he do but take matters into his own hands?

Includes an excerpt from BURN ME OUT, the newest, 5-star rated novel by Brandon Barrows!

50% story, 50% preview of Barrows' latest book, Burn Me Out - something which sits on the TBR pile.

I enjoyed both, though I think I might have crossed paths with Above Water before - one of those stories that oozes familiarity but has a certain don't know where, don't know when vibe.

Violence, shame, desperation, frustration, family, loss, poor choices, generational differences, uncontrolled anger, and a certain inevitability about the outcome. Our main character isn't the sharpest tool in the box.

I liked it.

4 from 5

The excerpt was less explosive but interesting. An older career criminal, basically a low level messenger/gopher/employee/collector type seems to be tiring of his occupation. Retirement isn't always an option.
