Cristian Romano lives his life as a con-artist, burglar, drug dealer and a lady's man, using his good looks to con wealthy women out of jewels and money.

When he is arrested and jailed in one of the most violent jails in the U.S. (Cook County in Chicago), a steamy affair begins with a nympho female jail guard. When he loses control of the romance, Christian must end the affair by reporting her to Internal Affairs. It turns out, that she is already under suspicion for supplying drugs to various gang members inside the jail. He has to decide if he is "rogue" enough to help set her up for arrest.

Meanwhile, the FBI wants to recruit Christian to gather information against a sadist ex-cop, Scott Mason, who has been arrested for murder. The risk? Christian must wear a wire and testify. The reward? Witness protection for Christian and his girlfriend and a modification of his prison sentence.

Will Christian risk his life for a chance at freedom?
Will the female sheriff "get even" with him? Or will his life end in the hands of the jail's drug lords or a lunatic former cop?

    Glenn Painter My book trailer depicts very dangerous circumstances, which is a very small part of this novel that is based on a true story. The main character (Christian Romano) must travel down four flights of these stairs in the underbelly of the Cook County Jail in Chicago. Many infamous men have been butchered or slain on these exact stairs. I have a very unique way of writing a novel in first person, which is very difficult to do. By writing this way and relaying actual dialect that is used in jail and every State the Protagonist is in, makes this novel understandable and very easy to follow. This novel makes it very easy to the making of a screenplay. I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed writing this book which is 80 chapters and close to 105,000 words.
