In July 1983 James Morgan Kane returned home in the evening to find a corpse in his living room.
Fearing that he would be blamed and sensing that his wife was somehow involved, he wanted to do all he could to protect his young family.
Jamie drove through the night to dispose of the body, all the while disbelieving the situation he found himself in. His luck ran out days later, when he was arrested and sentenced to thirteen years in prison.
Jamie entered the American prison system and went on to serve 34 years, with stints in San Quentin, Folsom State Prison and the ‘Gladiator School’ (DVI) in California. He was incarcerated alongside some of the world’s most infamous serial killers, such as Charles Manson, Edmund Kemper, Charles Tex Watson and Herbie Mullin, as well as gangs such as the Aryan Brotherhood and Mexican cartels.
This book tells of his time locked up with no hope of release, living the brutality of the American tough and unforgiving penitentiary system, his many run-ins with some of the world’s most dangerous inmates, and finding his new purpose in life.
