Sentenced to life in prison when he executes the men who murdered his wife, Kane Silver is singled out by the warden for his fighting ability. Along with inmates Valentino Lopez and Si’Ling Lee, Kane is drafted into service and forced to fight for money in high-stakes tournaments. But when the three friends escape during a New Year’s Eve match in Lake Tahoe—saving the warden’s life in the process—their situation becomes more complicated.

Their status undetermined, they vanish underground and sign on to help a young woman whose parents are being held by an Argentinean drug kingpin. Follow Kane and his friends as they compete and grow closer while rediscovering what it means to be free. From Lake Tahoe and the western United States to Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, and Thailand, Life After 187 takes readers on an exhilarating ride filled with big money, intense action, justice, and the pursuit of honor.

Life After 187 was packed with non-stop action for the first word to the last. The story was a face paced journey into worlds I knew nothing about and yet I couldn't put it down. I had to know how Kane was going to deal with the next situation he found himself in. Military, prison life, no rules fights for cash among many other foreign topics kept me enthralled throughout. The biggest shocker - I told my husband about it and he (being very proud of his utter dislike for reading) asked me to hold onto it so he can read it too.
