Summary
Kiki Swinson's novels crackle with breakneck triple-twists, no-limits characters, and an unforgettably brutal portrayal of Southern life. Now she shatters all expectations as a young woman serving time must survive a prisoner-abuse conspiracy... She killed her abusive boyfriend in self-defense. Now all she wants is to work her appeals, do her time, and earn her freedom. But when she tells her state-appointed attorney that prison guards are raping female prisoners, his betrayal lands her in lethal danger...
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In Swinson's third thriller, following The Black Market (2018), featuring Misty, a Virginia Beach pharmacy worker caught up in illegal drug dealings and the DEA, her determined protagonist learns firsthand about corruption and survival. She is definitely feeling remorse for the choices that landed her in prison, even though the murder she is charged with was committed in self-defense. She is attacked by associates of her outside enemies, and is subjected to assaults and abuse from medical staff who are conducting experiments on inmates. Between grueling interludes in solitary and in spite of the fact that everyone is living in fear, Misty is able to find a few allies, and she vows to help the other women inside if she is able to get out. Graphic descriptions of the horrors she endures vividly reveal her desperation and will to survive. Swinson, whose popularity is steadily growing, makes Misty a sympathetic character in an impossible situation, and the high suspense and theme of hope will keep readers reading and wondering how seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2020 Booklist"
