Publisher's Summary

A harrowing insight into New York City's most notorious detention complex, Rikers Island. The narrative plays through multiple characters who possess a particular position of control and power within the jail, along with the inmates and civilians who witness the violence, drugs, sex, and corruption that occurs every day inside. The seclusion of the jail from the city's beautiful skyline can seem like an amazing inferno to outsiders, however, for those who make it to the other side whether to make a living, being detained for breaking the law, or visiting someone accused of doing so, they all share that unshakable feeling. 

Each Character intertwines with one another through desperation and aspiration, sharing the same main objective…survival. Fraternization between uniformed staff and those incarcerated, the drug and alcohol abuse they have in common, violence between the inner-city gangs who congregate under the same roof, and the political pressure of elected officials attempting to maintain order where over 40 percent of the population suffers from mental illness. Out of sight, out of mind.

Welcome to the Island.
