Dark & Twisted – Review – Missing Him by Leah Penn @leahpenn7


Missing Him by Leah Penn is another book where the author approached me. After checking out other reviews, I felt I had to know….

Missing Him

Amazon / Goodreads


Til death us do part sums up this dark, twisted love story. They lived hard and loved hard.

Not a lot to say without spoiling the story.

The characters are totally committed to each other. I felt it was a very unhealthy relationship and as Emery Pearson tells the prison therapist her story, she never talks about the abuse she suffers at other inmates hands.

Life on the inside is brutal, dangerous.

I didn’t figure out the ending until I got there. That’s unusual for me. It wasn’t at all what I was expecting and I do love a book surprise.

The characters are way past dysfunctional, but I felt like they thought everything was as it should be…until that fateful day.

Choices, some are good and some are bad and some just are.

Who am I to judge someone else’s life?

Even though Missing Him by Leah Penn is fiction, it reads like a true story

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Missing Him by Leah Penn.

The much maligned and misjudged, Emery Pearson, sits facing prison therapist, Dr Susan James, in order to make a last ditch attempt to win her freedom after the chance of happiness with the only man she ever loved is cruelly cut short, in this roller-coaster tale of passion told through revealing flashbacks. Contains adult themes.

Hi! My name’s Cassandra and I write fiction and nonfiction under the author name, L Penn.

I was born in Leicestershire, UK, during the 60’s, and some of my writings have raised eyebrows from literary peers. I won’t complain as I’m non-conventional myself (given the general rule).

Since the start of time I was always informed, write what you know and what you want to read, and I’ve followed that ideal since. 

As a kid, I loved collecting ‘film stills’ by cutting out promotional posters of movies advertised in local newspapers and Film Review magazines. I was struck how beautiful these stills were and the short messages they conveyed were magnetic. Remember Ridley Scott’s ALIEN? “In space no one can hear you scream.” You don’t get that kind of magic anymore. Movies and soundtracks were far more memorable back then.

From my diverse background witnessing social ills, some get reflected in my work hence the love I have for my lead characters who go through “hardship and adversity“. Quite often I wish I had their resolve. I admire those who can sit and wait for justice when they’ve been wronged; be it through faith or the courts. That kind of discipline has to be admired.
