(price-clipped) [nice clean book with minimal shelfwear; jacket shows minor wear at lower extremities and spine ends, old price sticker at upper corner of front flap]. "This is the chilling story of an attempted prison break. The prisoners are not the usual convicts; they are teen-age delinquent boys. The prison is no ordinary prison; 'The Castle' is a reform school in New England, where the systematic practice of violence and vice, repression and abuse, has driven the young inmates to the breaking point." Kirkus Reviews, although opining that "this book will never be accused of tastefulness," did credit the author with "a substantial if not refined sympathy for his oppressed fellow man." (In his photo portrait, on the rear jacket panel, he effects a very Mickey Spillane-ish look.)
