Description

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be dead – to exist in a state of nothingness, to be no more, to assume the status of an old magnetic cassette tape; wiped clean of all but a residual hiss?

London, 2014
Jake Turner, a jaded cop; is on his way to give evidence about an underworld murder, when he gets wiped out by a Brixton-bound tube train. An indeterminate amount of time later, he comes to in a brightly lit “warehouse.”
His strange new surroundings are inhabited by a diverse set of “traveling” companions: shuffling and seemingly aimless husks of their former selves.
Trying to make some sense of his predicament, he begins to make forays into the cavernous interior of his new home. Whilst exploring the surreal environment he has been deposited in, Jake meets a host of characters, none of whom he initially recognizes.
As the cruel realisation of his fate starts to percolate in heart-rending drops from subconscious to reality, he begins to link those around him with his past.
The old guy captivating his audience with bawdy jokes - the young junkie turned hooker – could any of these people really have any link whatsoever to the law abiding cop?
The answers, when they come, rush on relentlessly; shoving Jake along memory lane like the train that scooped him up, dragged him along the cold steel rails and deposited him there; in that place.

Dead Or Alive In Purgatory is an irreverent peek at one man's unbiblical understanding of Purgatory. Along with the story’s heady mix of heart rending tragedy and atonement, a pale and skinny moon of humour illuminates the darkest passages; shining weakly on an otherwise inky black ocean of despair.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Having read and enjoyed Frost's first book - By Conscience Bound - I was curious to see what else he had to offer. I certainly wasn't disappointed; it's a story full of bitter sweet twists and turns. in Dead Or Alive In Purgatory, this interesting new author has gathered together a bunch of credible characters each with their own interesting pasts, and plonked them in his unique and original version of purgatory. Give it a go and like me, you may find yourself with food for thought...

Tantalising

Another great book from VM Frost keeps you enthralled with the tangible story line and full bodied characters. This author is worth keeping your eye on as I am sure he has more fantastic story lines to offer us.
I can't recommend this book enough to do it justice
