“This is the story of four young boys. Four lifelong friends. Intelligent, fun-loving, wise beyond their years, they are inseparable. Their potential is unlimited, but they are content to live within the closed world of New York City‘s Hell‘s Kitchen. And to play as many pranks as they can on the denizens of the street. They never get caught. And they know they never will.

Until one disastrous summer afternoon.”

JackOBotts My friend and I were enthralled by this as teens (likely the film adaptation with Brad Pitt and Brad Renfro). Just horrific. This is was my path to discovering the Count of Monte Cristo... 2h
TheKidUpstairs I was reading this post thinking, "this sounds a lot like a movie I've seen. What was the name of that one....?" Yup, my brain is working slowly today! ?‍♀️ 2h

Guns of one description or another figure on a number of covers in Stephen Leather‘s Spider Shepherd Series. Don‘t let the covers put you off, this series is little know but I love them! #Revolver #Movember

Cinfhen Covers are a little off putting/ not gonna lie 😱 22h
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Yes I don‘t think he helps himself with the covers. 20h

Andrew65 @EadieB I‘m sure you‘ll really enjoy them. Biggest issue is the lack of chapters! 7h
EadieB @Andrew65 I need chapters. They are good places to take a break if you need to. 6h
Andrew65 @EadieB Me too! 6h

A solid 4/5. I was expecting more of a “haunted” type prison, but I really enjoyed M.R.Carey‘s version of a ghost. There was 3/4 subplots and they all supported each other nice and tidely.

Though it took me longer than I‘d like to make time to read this book, it is one that will haunt me. There is much to digest here. Stevenson tells the story of his work to free death row inmate Walter McMillan, who was clearly innocent. He weaves in so many heartbreaking cases throughout. His discussion of those serving life sentences for crimes (allegedly) committed when they were 13 or 14 just broke me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nadia Hashimi has taken me back to Afghanistan with her story! I‘m rooting for the women unjustly imprisoned and hoping Zeba isn‘t actually the one who put an axe in her husband‘s head.

Very informative, yet sad. It was depressing reading about the people tried in an unjust system. Those who were sentenced to death with no evidence etc. What's sadder is that it is still going on now.

The shame. Thank goodness for audio cleaning/purging/organizing

Scochrane26 That looks like one of my rooms. 3d
mcctrish @Scochrane26 of course it was like a game of dominoes because I wanted the 2 fans out of there ( who even put them there 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️) so that meant reorganizing the laundry room shelves. Whoche led to a purge of craft supplies and a reorganization of sports equipment and dusting and vacuuming there. Then moving some out of season sports stuff to the mud room. Then going through hangers in the mud room and checking the boys rooms. And on. And on 3d
