Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.280 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: A big part of the story is learning just what crimes Hadi has committed and seeing how he comes to terms with himself. Just because he has been a killer, does that means he must always be one? This is well done.

Con: The ending seems to come too easily. Dierdre forces Hadi to listen to his old names, he remembers his past, and after that it’s all good. He hooks up with Dierdre, and they head off into the sunset.
