Meet the author Charles A. Gardner & Book Signing
As the weekend began, the two killers returned to the top tier of Cell Block A, finished with Friday’s work in the prison tailor shops. …..
Municipal court judge Gardner makes his debut with a gripping account of the daring prison break in 2015. Charles A. Gardner is a municipal court judge and retired Corrections regional training lieutenant in Malone, New York, the far-upstate town where he was born and raised. He had experience working in medium and maximum-security facilities including stints at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora and the maximum-security prisons of Sing-Sing, Bedford Hills, Great Meadow, and Upstate.
Dannemora is an exciting read, full of shocking revelations about the prison escape of two stone-cold killers, the high-level decisions that allowed it to happen, and the heroic law enforcement efforts in the three-week manhunt. – Gregg Olsen, New York Times bestselling author
