In Shame: The Path To Nowhere by Texas Rane, Hermann Dancy has it all - wealth a successful political career and a beautiful wife - but he wants more. Dancy longs for excitement and, in doing so, enters a dark world of greed, debauchery, violence, and betrayal. When the need for gratification leads to murder and an innocent man is convicted, Dancy will take any steps necessary not to lose what he has. But, not even Dancy anticipated that the innocent man in prison was capable of ruining everything he holds dear. Be careful what you wish for because sometimes the grass on the other side of the fence can lead to your downfall.
Shame: The Path To Nowhere by Texas Rane is a captivating thriller that will pull you into the world of the characters from the first chapter. The characterization is superb and their actions, especially those of Dancy, really evoke powerful emotions. He is such a selfish, self-absorbed man. I absolutely loved Bob's character. He was shrewd, unassuming, but so intelligent and with a great sense of humor. I thought the battle of intellects between Dancy and Bob really built the tension of the story. The author very cleverly included details on the backstory of the characters through the narrative and dialogue, which gave me such great insight into their mindset. The entire plot explores the dark themes of greed, jealousy, and fidelity extremely well. There are powerful scenes of violence that were needed for the story but they were not overly grisly. There are some great sub-plots too which supported the main story and the suspense is continuous throughout. This book will not only make you question your motives but that of others too. A great example of the very best and worst of human behavior.
