Glenn Langohrabout this book: Pelican Bay Riot: A True Thriller of Organized Crime and Corruption in Prison helped me become a Lecturer and expert in prison life. Professor Keramet Reiter who teaches a Criminal Justice class at the University of California Irvine found my books and read Pelican Bay Riot. She contacted me and asked me for an interview. I agreed on one condition, that she leave a review for Pelican Bay Riot.
Pelican Bay Riot is a collection of prison stories about life on the inside of some of the most violent prisons in California. I paint the culture into words so the world can see what happens when a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs are stuck in a confined space fighting for control.
• "This is a page-turner of a read about life inside the California prison system, told from the perspective of an experienced and thoughtful former prisoner, who describes remaining unaffiliated with the various prison gangs, but collaborating and mediating among them to maintain peace on the prison yards. This first-hand account of the California prison system is not only interesting, but provides an useful counterpoint (and compliment) to more academic accounts of prison life."
— Professor K Reiter
• "With lazer-like precision Glenn Langohr lays bare the festering under-belly of our criminal justice system in a driving, graphic narrative that somehow finds the humanity in this most inhuman setting."
— Phillip Doran, T.V. Producer and Author
