Re: RARA-AVIS: Jack Vance; Prisons

Date: 07 Apr 2006

JJ Maloney wasn't in prison when he wrote his two novels, but he had done time for murder and armed robbery before getting out and becoming an award-winning journalist. His first novel, I Speak for the Dead, is about a crime reporter, but his second, The Chain, is about a convict, first in prison, then on the run after an escape. It's been some time since I've read them, but I was very impressed by both.

Although he died a few years ago, he left a fascinating website with lots of his crime reporting:
