About The Book

A thrilling and gripping page-turner, that serves as both a sociological study of prison life and a metaphor for contemporary America.

In a prison of youthful hardcore criminals, a college professor convicted of killing a young girl while driving drunk teaches other inmates reading skills. A series of killings prompts officials to coerce Bauman to track down the killer. His quest takes readers into the web of corruption that is inherent in a big state prison.
