BOOK BLURB:
Unfairly arrested and charged with the murder of a police officer, Daniel has been jailed indefinitely until trial. A Brazilian prison is a terrible place to lose his innocence. Daniel would have lost more than that ~ perhaps even his life ~ if not for Mephisto, his cellmate.

Clippings is the story of the challenges faced by a middle class young man in prison, and his relationship with a dark, mysterious man who seems eager to protect him, but who might have his own inscrutable plans.

BOOK REVIEW:
This was an incredible and compelling read. Mephisto was described as a dark angel. He seemed pretty bright to me. I love stories about strong protective guys doing what they do best, but in a way which doesn’t smother or dominate.

I couldn’t help but empathize with Danny. He was an innocent, and a straight innocent, too. Ms. Mirag does an amazing job of showing how the horrors of prison opened Danny’s eyes. My favorite part of the story was how by degree, Mephisto managed to woo Danny. Once emerged, their love was portrayed beautifully and realistically.

I struggled to understand Mephisto’s prison friend “The Professor”. He had a laptop and a mobile phone in his cell. We were never told exactly why he was allowed to have such privileges or was held in such esteem by both the inmates and the authorities. But nonetheless he was a vital piece in the jigsaw and I particularly enjoyed how he psychoanalyzed Danny and Mephisto, giving us a clearer picture of what made them tick.

Much is left unresolved. I doubt there will be a sequel, but I know I’d be first in line to read it if one did emerge.
