This volume describes the day to day lives of prisoners in the Florida State correctional system and also those who risk their lives guarding them. The author and former prison guard describes the violence and other drama that goes on behind the locked doors of the penal system. He writes of the rules of survival that every inmate must learn to live to live by. He describes his job as a prison guard and his learning of the signs, signals, and codes the inmates use, in order to ensure his safety and that of the other guards. He recounts emergency calls, acts of heroism, hostage situations, fire, and murders as well as one man's story of how he was hired from his delivery truck and thrown into a life threatening career.
