Summary

  • "Trumble is a minimum-security federal prison, a "camp," home to the usual assortment of relatively harmless criminals - and three former judges who call themselves the Brethren: one from Texas, one from California, and one from Mississippi. They meet each day in the law library, their turf at Trumble, where they write briefs, handle cases for other inmates, practice law without a license, and sometimes dispense jailhouse justice. And they spend hours writing letters. They are fine-tuning a mail scam, and it's starting to really work. The money is pouring in." "Then their little scam goes awry."--BOOK JACKET.
