Bestselling author Lynda La Plante's tells a the tale of a daring escape from jail in this new novel for Quick Reads.
Is a change of identity all it takes to leave prison? Colin Burrows is desperate. Recently sent to prison for burglary, he knows that his four year sentence means that he will miss the birth of his first child. With his wife's due date fast approaching, he had hoped that the prison authorities would allow him to be present for the birth, but they have said no. Sharing a cell with Colin is Barry Marsden. Unlike most of the inmates, Barry actually likes prison life. He has come from a very difficult family and been in and out of a series of foster homes. In prison, he has three meals a day and he has discovered a talent for drawing. So he is upset that he will have to leave on parole soon. Sad to see his cellmate looking depressed, Barry hatches a plan to get Colin out of jail for the birth. It's a plan so crazy that either it will fail and get both men in deeper trouble, or it might just work.
