A few months ago, the author passed away. He was many things: a career criminal, a good public speaker, and a good author. Roger "Mad Dog" Caron stayed true to something we are all taught when we were in a high school English: "Write what you know". Bingo is a presentation of brutal reality during the Kingston Pen riots of the early 70s. In his words, Roger is honest without any apologies. This is not something you would find in an official report. It's better!

A frightening account of the problems in our prison system. While I know some have been fixed I am sure a great many remain. A few scenes in the last few chapters made me cringe.
