The emergency squads are massed along the fence of the prison, awaiting the order to attack, while sharpshooters are perched like crows on top of the administration building. Tom Hemmings, a dorm counselor, has been conscripted to negotiate a truce with the hostage takers. But Tom feels betrayed by the prison’s privatization of services, which has sparked the standoff by forcing cut-rate commodities upon the inmates. The prison guards have also split apart over fights between rival unions. Tom fears he might have joined the wrong one. Can he still count on protection from the guards who joined the competition? And so he must put his trust in Chester Mahoney, a chatty pedophile who leads the insurrection, and Jamal Hassan, a towering Muslim inmate with an agenda of his own. As he enters the prison, Tom’s heart starts to hammer. He knows he is entering a shadowland from which he may never return.
