This is a very short story (will take you around 30 mins for even the slowest reader to get through). Imagine the most horrifying and baddest things you have done in your life and now its time to pay up. What goes around comes around and it is certainly the case in this wee story. Good pace and action and as it is free from Amazon for the kindle it is definately worth a look.

Will certainly be keeping an eye out for this author to read again, 3/5 for me.

Good story. I've read four of this author's works in one night. He's very talented.

Another great read by Scribner! This story makes you wish that you could have a second chance in life to do some things over or not do them at all.

It didn't take me long to read, but I'm glad that I DID read it.

What if all the evil a person does in life comes back to visit them in death? That's the question posed by this short story. Fast paced and interesting look at the choices we make and where they can lead us.

To look at your life as one great mistake, then get the chance to change it.
