The story may been about a murder and follows the man that did it... But.....
Its so much more than that, so much more.
It's about how you choose to live when granted a second chance. It's about how money and power can't equal whats free in life and friendships that are so remar

Another reader-pleaser. An utterly tense-filled mystery that’ll have you gasping, sweating and trembling.

So, on to the plot. We have Phil Sawyer, a successful orthopedic surgeon who is incarcerated for the voluntary manslaughter of his wife. He falls from a rich life to one of poverty, relocating to the slums of San Quentin. During his downfall, Phil meets a great man who teaches him what life is really about. What really matters. This somehow leads them on the trail of a dangerous individual!

I read and reread this book several times. The characters were all well written. It'll keep you reading well into the night. Phil Sawyer learns a lesson in prison that he never would have thought he needed to learn. Wells Manning is a man of his word spending his entire life in prison he teaches Phil what he never was taught at the most prominent schools. Life lessons that will touch your heart. The twist at the end is worth the read. I would give this book a higher rating than 5 star! Absolutel ...more

Another unique read. !!

When will Ms Carter run out of these very interesting and unique story lines? Not fora very long time, I hope! Such a good book! The only criticism I have regarding this book is that heroes shouldn't "vomit" this profusely! That got old. But a great read anyway. Can't wait to read another book by this author. Oh, one more thing. I don't appreciate the potty mouth! Way too much swearing!

I bought this self-published book at the Decatur Book Festival from the author. It's badly written! A doctor goes to San Quentin for killing his trophy wife (but he's really a nice guy!) Solves a mystery at the prison, sets up a new life in Maine. Great gaps, he just arrived at the prison at the end of one chapter and been there five years at the beginning of the next.

Loved this book!!!
Suspenseful, and full of surprises, "No Second Chances" holds the reader captive until the last page. The book illustrates that nothing is black and white...there are infinite shades of grey. Intriguing characters draw you into their lives, and you find yourself cheering for or chastising them. One of the best books I have read in a long time. Kim has outdone herself again.

"No Second Chances" by Kim Carter is a fantastic read! The author introduces us to Phil Sawyer, a complex and compassionate man, who has, in a moment of rage, murdered his wife. What happens after that is an incredible story, one you won't want to miss. I highly recommend this book.
