Although he swears he's innocent, Frankie Tatum is convicted and receives two concurrent life sentences for the double murder of his wife and the local Sheriff's son. Only a last minute reprieve from the Governor saves him from an almost certain death at the hands of the vengeful Sheriff. Instead of incarceration in the Tennessee State Prison System, Frankie is ordered to be transferred to the notorious 'Skullhead Prison' in Southern Georgia on the edge of the deadly Okefenokee Swamp.
He's thrown into a nightmare existence of heavy labor, savage guards and in constant danger from gators, poisonous snakes, quicksand and his fellow inmates.
No one has ever escaped this hellhole overseen by a sadistic warden and a dog with a legendary reputation for never losing his man, Ol' Red.
Here is the real story behind the Blake Shelton country classic hit song, "Ol' Red." If you liked the song you're gonna love the book!
