Why would a man escape from prison the day before he's due to be released? Audie Palmer has spent a decade in prison for an armed robbery in which four people died, including two of the gang. Seven million dollars has never been recovered and everybody believes that Audie knows where the money is. For 10 years he has been beaten, stabbed, throttled and threatened almost daily by prison guards, inmates and criminal gangs, who all want to answer this same question, but suddenly Audie vanishes, the day before he's due to be released.
 
Here is my two cents.
 
Admittedly.  I was a bit disappointed to not find my usual favourites starring in this book but I soon forgot all about them as Michael Robothom once again wrote a thriller that kept me buys and kept me listening.
I listened to this book on audio and loved the production.
The story is intricate.  At times almost slow but never really slow. A bit predictable but not completely.  It is a lot of almost things before it turn a bit and becomes more.
In the end though the book did what I want from a book.  Escape.  Fun.  Relax. 
So if you are a fan.  Do pick up a copy.  If your not a fan...try this book.  It will change your reading list forever.
