Histria Books is pleased to announce the release today of The Invisible Walls of Dannemora: Inside the Infamous Clinton Correctional Facility by Michael H. Blaine, under its Gaudium Publishing imprint. In 2015, one of the most famous prison breaks in modern American history occurred at the notorious prison in Dannemora, New York. News of the event spread throughout the country and around the world and it even became the subject of a television drama. This exciting new book provides the first inside look at the facility and the conditions that led to this tragic event.
Dannemora had a proud past. Every employee chose to work there, and there was always a transfer list of staff waiting to work there. It was a hard prison for hardened criminals. Having housed the likes of mobster Charlie “Lucky” Luciano, “Son of Sam” David Berkowitz, Rappers Tupac Shakur, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and countless other infamous criminals, the staff at the Clinton Correctional Facility knew how to handle even the toughest of men.
The author, Michael H. Blaine, spent a career at the Clinton Correctional Facility. Having been an Officer, Sergeant, and Lieutenant, his story reveals the changes he observed and what he experienced at each rank he earned. Refusing to compromise his principles and sickened by the downward spiral that Clinton was experiencing, he retired less than 10 1/2 months before the first successful escape at Dannemora happened on June 6, 2015.
This new book reveals the inner workings of this massive prison. It is the first look inside at what it was like to work at the Clinton Correctional Facility, and its effects on those who spent time there on both sides of the bars, revealing why nobody escapes The Invisible Walls of Dannemora.
