In HM Prison Bowscar, there have already been disturbing rumblings of unrest. Political bungling brings mass murderer Angus McGregor and crooked financier Michael Masters together under one roof with a group of dangerous men with deadly connections and a plan is hatched to cause trouble.

An ambitious politician uses a Scottish jail uprising, triggered by deplorable conditions in the British penal system, to climb to the post of assistant minister for prisons. His actions bring together two dangerous men in Bowscar Prison, which is already overcrowded, a powder keg: multimillionaire con man Michael Masters, who thought he had a deal for an easy four-month sentence, and American criminal mastermind Charlie Lister, who was ironically snared by Customs. Also moved to the prison is sociopath Angus McGregor, whose younger brother died in the retaking of "the Scar"--a fact authorities are trying to cover up. But neophyte Scots journalist Rosanna Nixon saw Jimmy McGregor die, and joins with investigative reporter Andrew Forbes to seek out the truth. The humane administrator of Bowscar recognizes the dangers in the prison system and becomes concerned about the treatment of Angus McGregor. These and other story lines blend into a exciting narrative that, combined with the author's focus on the consequences of public indifference to the brutal treatment of inmates, yields a powerful, thought-provoking novel.
