Summary
Gang of one is the remarkable true story of one man's journey from a Glasgow orphanage to a notorious gang-infested prison in Texas. Driven by his desire to return to his son in England and haunted by the increasingly frustrating search for his missing daughter, Gary Mulgrew attempts the impossible task of surviving the prison's gang culture. Told with wit and humanity, Gang of one shows a man constantly confronted by the moral and physical challenges of prison life, where everyone is encouraged to turn their back and 'see nuthin'. Gary's choice - to walk away and let a man die, or intervene and lose the chance to get home - makes Gang of one a book as unforgettable as it is enthralling

Imagine you're a 35 year old, white, British, middle-class business man sentenced to three years in Big Spring, one of America's most notorious prisons. You've been told that if get into any trouble, your sentence will be doubled. You've just said goodbye to your lawyer. You're on your own. You are a "Gang of one". In the relentless heat of the desert, seven hundred men were crammed into a space meant for four hundred. Fights, murders and month-long lock-downs were commonplace. The guards - armed, untrained, on low wages - left the running of the jail to the gangs. "Gang of one" is an explosive prison memoir with the gritty realism of Midnight Express and the emotional force of The Shawshank Redemption
