Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Kiki Swinson's novels crackle with breakneck triple-twists, no-limits characters, and an unforgettably brutal portrayal of Southern life. Now she shatters all expectations as a young woman serving time must survive a prisoner-abuse conspiracy... She killed her abusive boyfriend in self-defense. Now all she wants is to work her appeals, do her time, and earn her freedom. But when she tells her state-appointed attorney that prison guards are raping female prisoners, his betrayal lands her in lethal danger...
