Chris Blatchford is an investigative reporter and has won numerous commendations and awards for his reports, including several Emmy Awards and a Peabody for his investigation into Italian Mafia infiltration of MCA/Universal's music and home video divisions.
"Blatchford is well-suited to tell this story . . . he captures the nuances and nihilism of the prison world . . . The narrative is interspersed with fascinating prison arcana."--Los Angeles Times
