I found this book to be shocking as well as Millar's most memorable. I know a lot of his fans will disagree because of the Kane series of books, but for me, I have always loved his stand-alone books such as The Darkness of Bones and Dark Souls. Why this book was never made into a movie, is beyond me. It's a classic tale of redemption in its purest if bloody form. Although this is not a Karl Kane book, readers of crime noir will not be disappointed. Cyrus Nowrasteh, award-winning writer/director, Warner Brothers, had this to say about the book: "While most writers sit in their study and make it up, Sam Millar has lived it and every sentence in his new novel, The Redemption Factory, evokes a searing truth about men, their dark past, and the code by which they live. Great title, great read. Disturbingly brutal. I enjoyed it immensely."
