The California Prison System houses a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs fighting for control and the author turns this story into a pulp thriller of true crime.
The author of Underdog, Glenn Langohr, takes you on a journey back into prison as he remembers a prison riot days before his release date where he left his friend on the way to Pelican Bay...
The story follows the author years later as he visits his friend in Pelican Bay during a prisoner developed hunger strike against sadistic and cruel guards who get off on their isolation and enjoy adding violence to their torture.
A spotlight on the flaws at how Pelican Bay determines gang validation and solitary confinement.
"A great analogy between caged dogs in an animal shelter, and prisoners in an overcrowded jail. A blow-by-blow description of the dialogue between four race leaders as they try to maintain the peace, and keep the factions from destroying themselves. Not the sort of thing you would read about in the media so it is all quite an eye-opener. Gives a great insight into the problems inherent in a mixed-race prison and how the prison authorities handle it. Some of these individual warders are human while some are sub-human. A most interesting and absorbing 5-Star read. I personally would like to see a sequel to this book."

Meet the Author
Glenn Langohr has a purpose: he writes to shine a light inside our prison systems and to help others turn their lives around. Before becoming a best selling author, Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell's Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn't stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church, speaks as a guest Lecturer at colleges and writes articles for newspapers. "I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders. In prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape." Help him show the world redemption is possible, buy and share his books.
