Editorial Reviews

Don South Orange County Weekly
This book opened my eyes to the California prison system through the eyes of an inmate. The character B.J wrestles with removing the stain in his memory of a deadly riot that took place at Pelican Bay Prison and looks for ways to avoid another riot. I never knew how little chance inmates have to turn their life around while in prison. The inmates seem to busy just trying to survive gang wars. A penetrating look inside the political landscape of California's most dangerous prison!

A raw, breathless descent through the inner circle of the California Penal Hell. Fraught with detail that only someone who's been there could know.
Brian Cardarunella
This book was exciting, scary and brutally symbolic of everyday life for those who are locked up and forced to survive no matter who they are.
I think it's inspiring because the writer is sharing his experiences and making them into a story for us to see inside at what really goes on in prison.
Vickie Angela
The amazing details of prison life - code words that prisoners use, explanations of how they commuicate from cell to cell - really make you feel you have entered a different world, or like you are watching a movie about prison life. The story shows how race riots that can kill prisoners can be started for very small and seemingly unimportant reasons, and how violence permeates every aspect of prison life. A gripping read that will help you understand the inhumanity of the prison system and why v
