"They called it the slit.
And it was the only way Prisoner 392 could see the outside world.
Cut into the iron door of his cell, the six-inch wide by two-inch tall opening looked like a mouth, rusted burs jutting up and down from the unfinished edges like serrated teeth..."

This story is told through the eyes of Prisoner 392 a sort of Hannibal Lecter kind of guy. Written well and descriptive for a short story. The beauty of the Kindle and ebooks is a wide window is open to read short work of new authors and authors from small publication houses so easily. I would not have enjoyed all these new authors without access to them through the kindle. I will be looking forward more now to reading the authors novel The Fixer.

Fantastic Short Story. Prison is hell, and in the torments of an iron box in Belize, Jakob discovers just how deep and bizarre that hell is. Its like "A Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovitch" if Ivan's prison camp was nestled into Dante's underworld.

Highly Recommend checking this one out.
