As Catch Can

ascatchcanI read this book in about a two day period.  It was a light read and turned out to be pretty good. Told in 1st person by Jack “Keeper” Marconi, a warden at a maximum security prison, the tale includes greed, envy, back stabbing, cold blooded murder and the occasional reference to male prison encounters ( I’ll leave it at that).

Zandri is pretty effective in character development, but his mental visualizations that he leaves you with are what really makes this book stand out. The flashbacks to Attica that “Keeper” has are still seared onto my brain registered under the file for fear.

This is a good, light read for some “in between” time between more though provoking books.
