Multi-volume author, Michael Kelso, introduces us to One on One:
Corrections Officer Emil Sorn believed the inmates at Larsan State Prison were coddled by the system, had too many rights, and never received any real punishment for their crimes. As sergeant in charge of the evening shift, disrespect or disobedience in any form was dealt with swiftly, severely, and quietly.
The idea started in a bar after a couple of drinks, and like most ideas so conceived, it should’ve stayed there. If the accused is granted the right to face their accuser, then the victim should have the right to confront the perpetrator. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life.
There is a fine line between Justice and Revenge. Emil Sorn is about to cross it.
This book about life in prison on both sides of the bars rings with a great deal of authenticity! Michael knows his stuff, he is a former corrections officer.
I really enjoyed this book because it feels so real. Without wasting any words, the characters, settings and action are very tangible and quite believable. Many of the actors have multiple faces that seem so appropriate for the moment.
The change in Emil Sorn is radical and alters his life forever. The loss of his father and the self-centered scorn of his mother both contribute to his dark transformation.
I promise no spoilers and I think I have managed to keep that promise once again. But I have to say this is an amazing story that will leave many rather unsettled and hopeful at the same time, and for different reasons.
I give 4.7 stars to One on One!
I have it straight from the author that a sequel is in the works! That makes me a happy camper!
