The California Prison System houses a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs fighting for control and the author turns this story into a pulp thriller of true crime.
Glenn Langohr takes you on a journey back into prison as he remembers a prison war with the Mexican Mafia before his release date. Days later, he got released. His friend he was in the deadly riot with didn't. He went to Pelican Bay's Super Max.
The story follows Glenn Langohr years later as he visits his friend in Pelican Bay during a prisoner developed hunger strike against sadistic and cruel guards who get off on their isolation and enjoy adding violence to their torture.

Captivating and Symbolic
UNDERDOG by Glenn Langohr is a well written true prison story fraught with emotion and detail. At the beginning of the book, the author and his wife visits an animal shelter to adopt a dog. The poor dogs were totally neglected in their cages, much like the prisoners in the hole, they too were in cages. The author reveals a story about the hunger strike and the beating of prisoners. You would never hear about this in the media.
The book is true. It's fact of what's going on in the prison system. Ironically, this book was released just one day after prisoner Christian Alexander Gomez, 27, dies during the hunger strike in a California prison.
