A prisoner of birth  by Jeffrey Archer. This is Archer at his best. It was in the “Kane and Abel” and “Sons of fortune” vein.

Danny Cartwright is wrongfully convicted of the death of his best friend on the day he celebrates his engagement to Beth Wilson.

Facing 22 years of prison, he despairs for his future. He is befriended by his cellmate and learn to read and write and this opens up a new world to him.

The novel is split into the five stages of Danny’s life. From incarceration to release, to revenge and then finally redemption.

This 500-page novel was a real page-turner and I thoroughly recommend it.
