I loved this book. Wade grabs a hold of you from page one and doesn't let go until you turn the last page. It's chocked full of no holds barred fights and fighters. If you are a fan of MMA or fights in general I think you would love this book.You can't help but sympathize with Kane and even the other main guys even though they all were in prison for murder. I found myself rooting for all the boys during their fights and adventures that led them all over the world.Wade truly has a gift of storytelling and I look forward to reading more by him. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this book to anyone who asked my opinion. It was fantastic! (I received this book via the author for review)

Right from the beginning I was hooked! Not a page, chapter or minute was I bored or had a flat feeling. I was truly rapt in the story, and had a hard time when having to put the book down. It had something for men, and for women. It was action packed, I mean fully loaded, for the guys. And it had a softer, more romantic side for the ladies. By now means a Harlequin, this is a hard hitting story that I can wait for the sequel!!Get a copy as soon as you can, and enjoy the trip!

Let me begin by saying Life After 187 really surprised me! I had expected a fictional book about prison life, inmates, and prison fighting but Life After 187 offered so much more.Kane Silver was brought up military, lost his mother at an early age, lost his wife to a senseless crime, and went to prison for the murder of the men who killed her. Life dealt him some hard knocks but each just made him stronger.I was impressed with Kane¿s leadership skills and how fast the bond was merged with his two inmates Si¿Ling and Valentino and how they quickly looked to him to call the shots with total trust and respect.At first I really was upset with the warden. I remember saying out loud, ¿Oh NO He Didn¿t!¿ over something he had broadcast over the prison loud speaker and had a feeling that somewhere down the line he was gonna get what he had coming to him. It was a total twist of fate what came next! Mr. Halverson has created an awesome story here with down to Earth believable characters that will take you on a thrill ride of an adventure! Don¿t blink your eyes until the story ends!

Wade J. Halverson has written one slam bang action filled book with "Life after 187". When Kane Silver kills the men that raped and murdered his wife, he is convicted and sentenced to prison for life. The warden is a gambler and loves attending fights at a New Years celebration in the home of a multimillionaire. He decides to find the best fighters among the inmates at his prison and enter them in the next years fight.Kane has trained since he was a boy, his father a tough military man, and he believes in justice, and has more courage than 10 men. He is selected as well as Valentino Lopez and Si'Ling, fellow prisoners to train and fight in a big stakes, no rules, possible battle to the death. The men are transfered to a training facility, under the auspices of medical research, and bond in their isolation, becoming as close as brothers.When circumstances allow them to escape, the real adventure begins.I can see this as an incredible action movie! Halverson's descriptions of the fights are so real, and exciting. If you are an action fan, give this one a try.I received this book from the author for review. Thanks Wade!

Skillful plotting, engaging characters and exotic settings combine in this powerful action novel. Compelling story lines produce a true page-turner, and yet, the reader is most captivated by the development of the main character as he confronts and triumphs over his demons. The author reveals an intimate heart in the context of a bone-crushing, high impact story. Highest recommendation.

I read this book on a recommendation and what a surprise! I'm not much of a writer, but I am a reader and I recognize a good storyteller when I read one. With this being his first book Mr. Halverson may not have been writing his whole life, but I am sure he has been telling stories. His simple and solid style lets the story come through and keeps you turning page after page. It's been a while since I have read a good fiction book and this one was great. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great story. I hope he gets a second book out soon.
