Overview

Sam is in debt to Frank. Frank is screwing Sam’s wife. Frank is also Sam’s bank manager.
Sam Fletcher’s pizza restaurant is going under and he hasn’t made the last two mortgage repayments on his house. He needs a miracle. Then Frank makes Sam an offer that will change his life; a chance to clear all his debt and start again. The only catch, Sam has to move on. Sam’s wife and son will be moving in with Frank. It’s all about new beginnings.
But when a chance encounter with a highly venomous snake tips the scales in Sam’s favour, he chooses to turn his back and let nature take its course. As Frank lies dying in the remote bush, Sam fights with his conscience and decides that he can live with the consequences of his inaction. But when Frank refuses to die, Sam suddenly finds himself accused of attempted murder. The only way out is to finish the job.
Sam arrives at the hospital with Frank’s body and the severed head of a snake, and is hailed a hero. What follows is a spiral into moral decay as Sam’s stillborn attempt to ‘change up’ his life draws him into conflict with police investigator and childhood mate, Bill Hepburn, and a dangerous partnership with local brothel owner, Danny Burke, and his seven foot Samoan sidekick, Vince.
Sam Fletcher’s journey is a frenzied, blood-soaked descent into purgatory. A story of what happens when a decent and desperate man succumbs to the temptation to do wrong.

Got bored aboit page 38. The writing is okay. I just couldn't get interested in the story or the characters.

This is a really fast moving and entertaining story. The characters are well developed and the plot moves at a good clip! Reminded me of why I USE to LOVE Stephen King before his wreck and he got weird! :)
