Repeating an earlier recommendation: ON THE YARD, Malcolm Braly's excellent prison novel, written after his release from San Quentin. Written while he was still behind bars, and also very good, given they were subject to prison censorship: SHAKE HIM TILL HE RATTLES, FELONY TANK and IT'S COLD OUT THERE, all Gold Medal originals.
