Kiki Swinson&;s novels crackle with breakneck triple-twists, no-limits characters, and an unforgettably brutal portrayal of Southern life. Now she shatters all expectations as a young woman serving time must survive a prisoner-abuse conspiracy . . .
Trust no one
She killed her abusive boyfriend in self-defense. But in jail, violent female gangs paid off by her enemies keep her fearing for her life&;and land her in the hospital. From there, a medical testing facility is her one dubious hope for some kind of safety.
Watch your back
But from the moment she hits the yard, she and other prisoners are victimized by illegal medical experiments. Injected with lethal diseases and made a test subject for experimental vaccines, she&;s clinging to determination by the slimmest thread&;until she forms an alliance with a Corrections Officer.
Survive the night
Now she&;s got unexpected help&;and thanks to the CO, a risky plan to escape. But her only way out means racking up bodies. And as lethal obstacles pile ever higher, she soon may not have any future to save.

Baker & Taylor
Imprisoned after killing her boyfriend in self-defense, a young woman escapes violent prison gangs by relocating to a medical facility where she is unwittingly rendered a test subject in illegal laboratory experiments. By the author of Wifey.
