Publisher's Summary

Number-one best seller

The author spent 10 years inside the most violent prisons in California on drug charges. Lock Up Diaries is a depiction of life inside prison and a look at the political landscape between races and gangs. The Mexican Mafia, drug cartels, Aryan Brotherhood, and the black gangs all collide. The amazing details of prison life - code words that prisoners use, explanations of how they communicate from cell to cell - really make you feel you have entered a different world, or like you are watching a movie about prison life. The story shows how race riots that can kill prisoners can be started for very small and seemingly unimportant reasons, and how violence permeates every aspect of prison life.

In Lock Up Diaries, a drug debt is on the verge of sparking a gang war.

Half of the proceeds are donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.

Critic Reviews

"The Lock Up Diaries is a harrowing account of what it is like in California's most hellacious prison. The vivid characters, the pace, the look at how drug debts affect the political landscape, are entertaining to say the least." (Jeniffer flowers, UCLA)

Great read

A real enjoyable read. Langohr gives a good glimpse into the complex politics of prison in California. The book also sheds light on how prison guards and administration fuel racial conflicts
