What's life like behind bars for a guy framed for the death of the DA's wife? Ask Cal McDonald. He's a guy who knows a thing or two about misery from firsthand experience, but miserable doesn't begin to describe what's ahead for the disgraced private dick whose only friend on the planet is a dead guy. Now Cal's in lockup at the darkest time of his life with no connection to the outside world except through the random contact he makes with other prisoners. Luckily for Cal, it turns out his reputation precedes him¦and the reputation of an ex-cop gone wrong who runs with ghouls might be just the thing to keep him alive against all odds.
