Falling from a life of wealth and substance, to inside one of America’s most notorious prisons, prominent orthopedic surgeon Phil Sawyer is incarcerated for the voluntary manslaughter of his wife. While confined, he finds himself on the trail of a serial killer that infiltrates the walls of San Quentin. After finding himself in the infirmary for getting involved in an incident that didn’t concern him, Phil struggles with the decision to stick his neck out. But he can’t ignore the rise in suspicious deaths among the African American inmates. With the aid of an empathetic nurse and help from the outside, he tries to identify the unexplained cause of their cardiac arrests. He finds himself out on early release and heads to Solomon Cove, a peaceful town in Maine.

“WHAT A FABULOUS AND INCREDIBLE WRITTEN BOOK!!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Sharon Richmond
No Second Chances by Kim Carter. 5 Stars*****
OMG!!!, WHAT A FABULOUS AND INCREDIBLE WRITTEN BOOK!!!! FREAKING LOVED THIS!!!!
Fyi: This is a long review, I just couldnt stop, lol.
The story may been about a murder and follows the man that did it… But…..
Its so much more than that, so much more.
It’s about how you choose to live when granted a second chance. It’s about how money and power can’t equal whats free in life and friendships that are so remarkable and real.
I don’t exactly know how to explain it, You’ll feel like your living it, you’ll find a character you can relate to, Or find you picturing your own friends in it. It’s truely a book that draws you in to it. You can feel the plot thicken as you read it. Awesome!
This author writes in such a fascinating way, describing in detail what all the characters thought and felt but doing it in such a way it’s not overbearing but so smootly described it was fullfilling and made the story so realistic.
Come read about a murder and the murderer, his journey from riches to prison to back in society. Meet Phil, this is his journey., then there’s Charlie and Janet, Arthur, Lara, Lilly, Pops, Jenny, Ruthanne, Joesph a litte town and so much more.
I have voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of this book by it’s auhor. Reviewer for Nook Books and More Blog.
About the Author
Kim Carter is an award-winning author of suspense, mystery and thriller novels.
She was a finalist for the 2018 Killer Nashville Silver Falchion Award and a recipient of the 2017 TCK Publishers’ Readers’ Choice Award for her book Murder Among The Tombstones. This is the first book in her Clara and Iris Mystery series. The characters in this series are a couple of overly curious widows who become private investigators. These funny women were inspired by Kim’s mother and her mom’s best friend.
Her other titles include Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle, When Dawn Never Comes, Deadly Odds, No Second Chances, and her latest, And The Forecast Called For Rain.
Kim’s writing career started after she suffered an illness that made her housebound for a couple of years. An avid reader of mystery novels herself, she embarked on writing as a means of filling her time. She began to share those early writings with friends and family who encouraged her to pursue writing professionally. Her health struggles and successes have been chronicled on The Lifetime Television in early 2000, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution, Women’s Day Magazine, and Guidepost.
Prior to her illness, Kim worked in many different capacities in county government as her “Day Job,” but ultimately, it was her job as a correctional officer that provided her the opportunities to talk and interact with a diverse group of people. Her experiences ran the gamete of inspiring success stories to tragic endings, much like her mysteries.
She self-published her first book No Second Chances. One of the guest speakers at the launch party she had at the Performing Arts Center in Newnan, Georgia included her close friend retired Atlanta Police Chief Eldrin Bell. This connection would become helpful as she started doing more research for other books, this time working with a small publishing house.
Kim began networking and made connections with numerous homicide detectives, medical examiners, and prison officials. Her research has taken her many places including morgues, death row, and the occasional midnight visit to cemeteries.
Kim is a college graduate of Saint Leo University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. She and her husband have three successful grown children and reside just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
Kim’s books can be purchased online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, and Indie Bound.
