Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425214540, Mass Market Paperback)

Florida Department of Law Enforcement agent Bill Tasker has been under stress lately, and his boss has a perfect getaway for him-Manatee Correctional Prison, where the governor wants an inmate homicide investigated. But there's a whole lot more than murder going on at Manatee. The prison captain likes to enforce discipline by "unorthodox" methods. The psych ward has been known to misplace the occasional patient. A trustee named Luther has something far more ambitious on his mind than working in the prison library. And something very unpleasant is about to happen to Tasker's next-door neighbor.

"FDLE agent Bill Tasker's boss is worried about the stress Tasker's been under, but he has a solution. The governor wants somebody from the outside to take a look at an inmate homicide at Manatee Correctional Facility, and this way, the boss figures, he can do the state a favor and give Tasker a break at the same time." "Some break. Turns out, there's a whole lot going on up in Manatee. The prison captain likes to exert discipline by fairly unorthodox methods. The psych ward has been known to misplace a mental patient occasionally. A trusty named Luther has far more on his mind than working in the prison library - though the rods holding up the shelves do make very nice shivs. The prison inspector is holding a number of very uninspector-like secrets. And something very bad is about to happen to Tasker's next-door neighbor."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
