The concept for this book is both fascinating and troubling. C.J. West set this book in the near future, at a time when our justice system has been dismantled and replaced by a whole new program with a whole new set of rules. Michael, the main character, is a career criminal. His crimes have all been nonviolent, yet it is questionable as to whether he will be able to conform to society.

West did a great job of portraying Michael, forcing readers to look at him as the troubled young man he was and showing us what brought him to the place he found himself in. The ending caught me off guard and, I have to admit, bothered me tremendously.

While some spots in the middle lagged a bit for me, overall I found the writing quite good and the story compelling.
