White Man's Justice, Black Man's Grief by Donald Goines
Barely out of his twenties, Chester Hines knows the score.
He's just another bug crawling through the streets of Detroit, waiting to be squashed under the heel of a system meant to keep a brother down. But with his old lady on his back, his only options are on the wrong side of the law.
He didn't need a fortune-teller to tell him that sooner or later he'd end up in a system more brutal than the one that forced him there. Prison life is raw. But it's the only life Chester's got. Against all odds, he and his crew will forge a brotherhood in hell.
Together they'll scratch and claw their way day by day, suffering unimaginable abuse, betrayal, and pure, uncut hopelessness-or die trying.
