No Escape took me on a rollercoaster drive into the criminal world. The plot is complex and exciting - the different stories intertwine with the main story to form this gripping page-turner. Donald Steven Collins ensured enough action to get your attention. I was kept captivated until the end. The story is fast-paced, but never felt rushed. I was intrigued from the beginning and the suspense kept me on edge. It was a nail-biting experience for me with all the twists and I could not turn the pages fast enough. The characters were well-developed and robust. They were authentic and I could relate to them. The story is exceptionally well written and executed. I felt as if I was right in the middle of the action. This is an excellent crime story.
