According to the author, "Daniel Nagle didn't die alone, because in a state prison nobody is ever alone. But the only witnesses to his murder, the first murder of a Texas prison guard by an inmate since 1982, were inmates. If you ask how it happened, that is, how a guard found himself fighting for his life--unarmed, without a radio, and without backup -- in an area accessible to more than one hundred inmates, you will be introduced to a long-standing battle between the prison guard union and the prison administration over understaffing, poor pay, and poor training, of which Nagle's death is only the most recent flashpoint."
