This provocative novel is the fictionalized account of the slow but steady demise of the American parole system. The tale is told by storytellers who are in, or are affected by, American criminal justice. They include police officers, sex offenders, judges, career criminals, parole officers and prosecutors, among others. Those who choose to speak do so with a multitude of opinions, styles and abilities. Some are profane. Some are endearing. Many are troubled. All are necessary in the telling of the complete story. Parole is a controversial national topic. It generates emotional responses from talk show participants to state legislators across the country. A paroled sex offender who commits another sexual assault while on parole will make headlines for months.
