Brooke Williams about this book: Beyond the Bars is a unique thriller written form the perspective of five different characters. When buses explode in cities across the country, people are in a panic. The reader gets to see events unfold from the eyes of a Midwest cop, a frantic mother, a priest, a prison inmate, and even a spirit who dies in the first blast. The different perspectives allow reader a full look at the story arch from every angle. The fast-pace of the novel brings everything to a head at the end when the ultimate battle between good versus evil takes place. One reader said: "Suffice it to say that this short novel is a complicated exploration of family--how it shapes us, how it betrays us, and how it can ultimately save us. There's also a strong undercurrent of a bigger battle, that of good and evil." The author wrote the book as an experiment with the idea that even she would not know what would happen from chapter to chapter until it was completed. The result is a heart-pounding novel that will keep you guessing until the end.
