About the Book
Victims of Circumstance tells the true story of Nick Harris and his father, Richard (Ricky) Matt. Nick, a victim of drug addiction, lives with his worn-down mother Vee Harris. Their lives have never been easy since the introduction of Ricky into Vee’s young life. Their toxic relationship created Nick, and Ricky, while caring for Nick in his own way, used his anger and aggression to the world to destroy any semblance of a normal family they could have had. After Ricky’s arrest for murder and eventual escape, Nick and Vee relive their past as they watch his manhunt and death play out on twenty-four-hour news’ cycles. Nick will need to reconcile with his past and find redemption in order to move on and live a better life.
