NetGalley Praise "Very interesting read. Pablo is an intriguing character. He is not as merciless as the description gives him. It is an unbelievable tale; but I enjoyed reading it."

Zoie C., Reviewer - United States "Did love the read. Read it in a day. The writing keeps you wanting more..." William K., Reviewer - United Kingdom "Pablo was a real interesting character and I ABSOLUTELY loved his dark humor. This book was a little different than the books i usually read, but it didn't disappoint me a bit." Poppy A., Reviewer - United States "This novel is unusual, deviating from other books of similiar nature... I consider this book to show political satire, philosophical reasoning which is questionable at times. I did enjoy this book, and would recommend it. Keep an open mind when reading."

What an interesting book!!
This is the second book I have read from Izai and he has a style I haven't seen before. Unlike the first book I read that was out loud funny, this book is serious but just as good. The main character goes through various phases in life but he does it 'on the run' making the book very interesting. He gets help from different unusual people and shows the underside of the human character.
Izai is showing that he is a versatile writer which tells me he will be around for a long time.
If you want a change from the ordinary, I highly recommend this book. I also recommend this author. My only caveat is that the book contains quite a bit of cussing.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
What an unusual book! It begins with Pablo involved in a shooting which was a set up. We then learn that Colombians and Fed’s are all after him which leads to him going on the run.
What a fascinating tale then unfolds as we follow Pablo on his incredible journey. This takes him on a voyage of self discovery through many areas of his life both past and present as he travels to the future. A terrifying journey trying to escape capture, survive with no money, afraid to contact friends for fear of capture. How could he prove his innocence.
There are many things to enjoy with this story. I loved the way Pablo argued with himself over religion, politics etc. Also the humour throughout.
The author gives us a rich tapestry woven with colourful characters all with unique stories.
Does Pablo escape capture? Does he find what he seeks?
You will have to read this for yourself. I am sure you will enjoy finding the answers.
I really recommend this.
The book is filled with dark humor, but it doesn’t overdo it. Pablo’s behavior always stays in character, even as he struggles to find his own identity and come to terms with how he’s changed. Pablo’s choices aren’t always the right ones – definitely not – but they do allow the reader to get a more complete perspective on him. At first, he’s horrified by what he’s forced to do, but he slowly adapts to the new life forced upon him.
An intriguing read, and one I very much enjoyed. If you like literary fiction with a dark sense of humor, I recommend this book. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
himself in not one, but two crazy situations in only a couple of days.
Through no fault of his own, he finds himself on the wrong side of the
law and also a target for an international drug cartel.
As Pablo travels from California to New York, he learns how to hide in
plain sight and then re-invent himself. At times, the folks he comes to
rely on seem the most unlikely. In the process of taking on a new
identity, Pablo also looks to the past and goes down a path of

Amorim pokes fun at some powerful people and shows a kinder side to some
shady characters. This is the second book by this author that I have read
