More pulse-pounding action and shocking surprises in the fourth installment of the Escape from Furnace series!

Forever altered by his experience in Furnace Penetentiary, Alex has done the impossible and escaped. But the battle for freedom is only just beginning.

Charged with his superhuman abilities, Alex must uncover the last of Furnace’s secrets–the truth about the man who built the prison, the man known as Alfred Furnace.

And to do that he must stop running and finally confront his greatest fears.

Praise for Death Sentence (Escape from Furnace Book 3):

In this third installment of the Furnace series, Gordon-Smith has pulled out all the stops. It is a tour de force of action and adventure… Honestly, this reviewer could not put this book down, having thoroughly enjoyed all of the novels in this series, and will anxiously await the release of Fugitives: Escape from Furnace 4… . Please continue to wow us, Mr. Gordon Smith–your books are a pleasure to read. –VOYA

Praise for Solitary (Escape from Furnace Book 2):

Fast paced and packed with nail-biting scenarios … This is a dark story with a dark ending, but the gritty action and compelling characters will have reluctant readers enthralled. –School Library Journal

Once again, Smith has created a thrill ride that will leave the audience wanting more. Smith’s prose is fast paced, witty, and sometimes downright terrifying.
