"Throughout the book, readers will encounter rich narrative and biographical accounts of offenders, their backgrounds, their offences, and their road to desistance. It is through these accounts that complex stories are neatly unpacked through a combination of theory and consumable novelistic perspectives." (Mohammed Rahman, The Howard Journal of Crime and Justice, Vol. 58 (1), March, 2018)
