Caroline is currently working on her third book called Inside the Death Fences: Memoirs of a Whistleblower
which tells her story of working inside a maximum security men’s prison in Missouri.
Little did I know that I was stepping into a world of corruption: blackmail, violence, harassment, and drug trade. My experiences within the death fences have been shared with a Missouri House subcommittee and are the focus of my third book, Inside the Death Fences, which begins a year prior to meeting Keith Giammanco, the subject of Bank Notes: The True Story of the Boonie Hat Bandit.
Excerpts from Inside the Death Fences:
” Prison was never on my horizon. At least I didn’t think it was. A maximum security prison, threats on my life, finding true love in an unlikely place, and testifying before a Missouri House subcommittee were not events I envisioned as part of my world. Life is truly filled with the unexpected.”
“As I walked through the parking lot, I noticed a large white sign with red letters announcing, “Danger! High Voltage Electricity!” I stopped to read the sign fully as I stepped onto the sidewalk leading to the main doors of the Administration Building. Clearly, tempting those fences would bring certain death to anyone who tried it.”
“You will have people tell you to beware of the inmates. They can be silver-tongued devils and will try to manipulate you. I’m telling you right now, you need to be as worried about the other staff members as you do the inmates. There are plenty of employees who are just as likely to do and say things to you that they shouldn’t.”
