Spikes by J R Knox



A timely, captivating drama…

Knox makes his debut with a dark, relevant, and suspenseful tale of a young man who is forced to make difficult choices in the face of unforeseen circumstances. Darren, a young warehouse worker, finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of high-stake betting after the death of his mentor and father figure uncle. As the stakes rise, he is faced with making difficult choices or risk losing the ones he loves. Moving at a brisk pace, Knox doesn’t waste any time on pleasantries: he keeps adding darker, bleaker twists until the story turns upside down along with readers’ expectations. The book’s intense climax and garish resolution successfully depict the necessity of making careful life choices and choosing right friends. With its relevant and timely theme, skilled narrative, crisp prose, and tight plotting, the book will entertain mainstream and action/adventure young adult readers alike.
