Description: After seven long years in Tuccahoe State Penitentiary, Danny McLaren finally comes home to find that much hasn't changed. He still can't get a half-decent job, and what's worse, there's now a four year old girl living in the house that his wife neglected to tell him about. If all this wasn't enough, it only gets worse for Danny when there's a prison riot at Tuccahoe, and his ex-cellmate and two other cons show up at his house, wanting a safe place to hide out. That is, until they can find a way to get to... Paradise.

This book was thoroughly researched. I really feel I know Washington better than I did. He's not just some figure now etched in stone; but a living, breathing person, warts and all.
