Life After Death by Cliff White is a graphic story about a falsely accused man’s thirst for revenge.
~~~~Some Spoilers Ahead!~~~~
When Chris Combs is exonerated after fifteen years on death row, he immediately begins to plan revenge on those who wrongfully convicted him. He feels that, since he was a black man in a white man’s court, everyone involved was out to get him executed for a crime he didn’t commit, and it’s only right that he returns the favor. But the world has changed since he went to jail, and revenge might not be as easy as he expected.
This was a gritty, in-your-face look at one man’s struggle against an unfair and racist judicial system, and Chris ultimately takes the matter of justice into his own hands. It’s graphic, visual, and plunges you right into the thick of it with no warning or apology. Chris tells you a detailed story full of injustice, betrayal, drugs, sex, and murder. It’s a wild ride that is not for the faint of heart!
I thought that the characters had chemistry, and the settings and actions were all well described. The dialogue felt a little flat, and the plot seemed to bounce a little, but that could have been because of the punctuation. The punctuation was all over the place, and that made the story feel choppy and disjointed.
I give this story a 3 out of 5. The story and characters were compelling, but I can’t get over how messy the punctuation was. That being said, this was an interesting look into a violent world that I wasn’t familiar with, and I am thankful that I got a glimpse into Chris Combs’s Life after Death!
