When We Join Jesus in Hell by Lee Thompson

This is the story of Fist, an ex boxer turned workaday Joe family man. He feels lost in his new role and tries to drown his sorrow in drink. One night he comes home drunk and stumbles up to bed. What he sees in the bedroom will change his life forever, and over the course of that night he tries to set right a series of wrongs.

This was an intensely moving and powerful story. Yes it was dark, and gory but still enormously moving. My heart went out to Fist for what he felt was a life wasted. It was a quick read, but there was no quality lost, in fact it made it more profound for that. The pace was good and I felt I was walking in Fists shoes with him. This was amazing and extraordinary writing.
