    1. Wow, after seeing several docu-dramas and such over the years I always wanted to read actual account. Very detailed and researched. Reads very quickly and was glad to see the bad guys made even worse than profiled on TV from over the years. Highly recommend especially for fans of true crime and suspense thrillers. Five stars out of a possible five stars.

    2. This is a fascinating account of an important event in Montana. The background of each character must have been a painstaking research project. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the history behind it. I have a new perspective on inmate life and the role of prison guards and prison administration.

    3. Prison TourToured the old prison in Deer Lodge. It was as though ghosts were walking through the prison. Very eerie feeling. Read the book after touring the prison. Pictured it happening just as the book.

    4. Loved this nonfiction about a local historical event. Well done. Helpful in gathering information about our region and interesting reading. Thanks Kevin Giles.

    5. Well Researched and Historically Documented Such a great bookcially after visiting the prison where it took place. Now after learning about where things took place, I want to go back and explore some more. This comes as a highly suggested read for me, even if it seems a bit long winded at times. Overall a great read!
