I feel fortunate to have received a book blurb for “Supermax Prison: Controlling the most dangerous criminals,” written by Terry Turchie, author of “Unabomber: How the FBI Broke Its Own Rules to Capture the Terrorist Ted Kaczynski. Special Agent Turchie is now retired, pursuing a writing career.
Rarely does a book come along that truly shows the final point in the life of a violent criminal. Supermax Prison does just that. It brings the reader into the lowest depths constructed for human life in the United States: incarceration for the human being too violent to live with others, even other convicts. A must read for everyone interested in criminality, law and order and well written books.
