In part two of this series, prison guard Paul Edgecombe relates some happenings in cell block E, where those condemned to die in the electric chair live out their last days. He describes the inmates, but also the environment and relationship between guards and prisoners. While this book was slightly creepy (it is about serial killers), it sheds light on what daily life on death row was like for both guards and inmates alike. The story takes place in the 1930s and 40s, so it was interesting to see how this little world in a bubble was faring during some major historical events (the depression, war, etc.). I probably won't read the rest of the series, but it was still an interesting book.
