About the Author


Humboldt County, California

Four months after the event

Freedom. He could almost taste it. John Boone stood at the door of his eight-by-ten cell, watching through a thin vertical pane as hands on the clock ticked over. His eyes flitted between correctional officers as they hurried to prepare the transfer of thirty prisoners from Humboldt Correctional Facility to North Kern State Prison.

Transfers occurred for all manner of reasons. If inmates were near the end of their sentence, they might be moved to a prison that was closer to where they would live after release. Sometimes the conditions were better elsewhere. Other times it was due to overpopulation. This time they’d been told two reasons: to curb the spread of sickness and because the generators were needed elsewhere.

The transfer had been planned for some time. He’d heard the rumors that state was expediting the release of inmates ever since the power grid went down four months ago, but it was when an officer banged on his door and told him to pack up his things that he knew the situation had gotten worse. They didn’t release folks like him. Violent offenders, that is. Only those who were deemed nonviolent or had serious medical conditions.

“I’m being released?” he’d asked.

“In your dreams,” Dustin Parish replied.

Boone had seen inmates leave. The lucky few. He learned that it was only those who had served a lengthy sentence, posed a low risk of reoffending, and were vulnerable to the sickness that had spread for over a year.

It didn’t matter to him. He was getting out one way or another, and he knew who would help. He locked eyes with Parish, a correctional officer who had dodged a bullet that year after Humboldt County arrested a fellow deputy for smuggling contraband into the facility. He wasn’t the first to do it. What the drug task force had gotten wrong was that Deputy Jameson hadn’t acted alone. Parish was in on it but because Jameson hadn’t squealed, he had gotten away scot-free. They might not have known his involvement but Boone did and he’d planned to use that to his advantage.

Boone turned and dropped down to do thirty push-ups. It was routine. It kept his body fit and his mind active after years inside for armed robbery. A year ago he’d been transferred out of state back to his hometown to serve out the remainder of his sentence. That’s why it bothered him that they were talking about transferring him back to state.

The muscles on his back rippled, the huge tattoo of a cross looked as if it was alive with each dip. His belief in God wasn’t the healthiest. It almost bordered upon an obsession. While others shared their faith, did good to others, quoted the New Testament, and talked about love and forgiveness, he was much more partial to the Old. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. There was substance to that. None of this namby-pamby business. Forgiveness? That was for pussies. The God he served was a God of vengeance, ready to strike down upon the heads of those that stepped out of line. Now that he could get behind.

Boone heard the steel flap on the door clank against it. That familiar sound that drove men mad. “Boone. Let’s go.”

“Sixteen more to go.”

“Get your ass up now.”

“Fifteen, fourteen.”

“Don’t make us come in there.”

“Is that a promise? Twelve, eleven.”

Hernández acted all tough but he knew his place.
