Description : Courage. Intuition. A sense of duty. August 21, 1971 - Correctional Lieutenant Richard 'Dick' Nelson is painting his dining room when his quiet afternoon off is jolted by the piercing sound of gunfire. Living on the grounds of San Quentin State Prison, Nelson knows the shots are coming from inside the prison gates. And he knows who fired the gun - and why. Into Harm's Way is the story of a man who goes looking for a stable career in an honorable vocation, and builds a set of working principles along the way through unforgettable people and experiences. When anti-authority tension begins to mount behind the wall, Nelson tests those principles as he rushes in to stop a deadly riot that changes a profession for good. Fans of true crime stories will enjoy this book of tales featuring oddball creepy convicts, vengeful murderous gang members, and harrowing assaults. And if you've ever thought about a career working behind the wall, this book is for you. It offers insights into the job of correctional peace officer that no training manual ever could!
