Publisher's Summary

Winner of the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger award 2015
Why would a man escape from prison the day before he's due to be released?
Audie Palmer has spent a decade in prison for an armed robbery in which four people died, including two of the gang. Seven million dollars has never been recovered and everybody believes that Audie knows where the money is. For 10 years he has been beaten, stabbed, throttled, and threatened almost daily by prison guards, inmates, and criminal gangs, who all want to answer this same question, but suddenly Audie vanishes, the day before he's due to be released. Everybody wants to find Audie, but he's not running. Instead he's trying to save a life...and not just his own.

An unfolding story!

What did you like most about Life or Death?

I loved listening to this one (even with the male narrator sometimes creating an 'interesting' southern woman's voice). The story is an 'unfolding' one which can be slightly confusing at times but seems to clear up a few minutes later. The main character is the likeable Audie who escapes from prison the day before he's meant to be released from a 10 year armed robbery jail sentence. I loved how the story started to make more sense as I went along. Gripping & great, 5 stars!
