New York Times bestselling author, Anne Perry writes:

This is the true story of how one man, immersed in a world of crime and violence, found a turning point in his life in the most unlikely of places – his prison cell. It was a radical change that forced him to admit for the first time in his life that he was lost and headed for destruction. Nothing fundamental is easy, but this story proves that change is possible, even for those written off by society.                                                                                                                                               

If A Wicked Man is told faithfully, in simple language and with no excuses. Read it, and believe that there is always hope. Read More
