Raised within the confines of a system that has done nothing but provide him with pain, Alex Hamilton's frustration and anger are completely natural--and inherently dangerous.
Since his parents split up, Alex has been constantly running from foster homes and institutions, yearning to be with his father, a broken man who cannot give his son the home he desperately needs. The only constant in Alex's life is no-good, criminally-minded peers, who are all too ready to plant illegal ideas in an intelligent mind. Bunker writes, "His unique potential would develop into unique destructiveness."

Edward Bunker played Mr. Blue in Quentin Tarantino's film "Reservoir Dogs." He is also the author of No Beast So Fierce and Dog Eat Dog. Most of his life has been spent in prison, where he wrote. He paid the postage for his early manuscript submissions by selling his blood. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife and child.

Editorial Reviews

"Bunker is a true original of American letters. His books are criminal classics." -James Ellroy"Bunker (is) among the tiny band of American prisoner-writers whose work possesses integrity, craftsmanship, and moral artist with a unique and compelling voice." -William Styron"Bunker shoots straight--his direct and transparent prose captures the 'primacy of violence' that defines life in the slammer." -Kirkus Reviews
