I enjoy prison stories, but some of the outrageous claims in this were hard to believe and took away from the story. Poorer inmates would volunteer their bodies as canvases for those learning to draw tattoos, Jamie claims. A Brit who spent more than 30 years in some of America's toughest prisons has revealed the two reasons why lags boldly get face tattoos inside. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. He got in contact with the Isle of Man authorities to find out what was needed for him to get the birth certificate.

He has since been released and written a new book, Behind The Granite Walls, revealing the brutal truth of life behind bars Stateside. I have no idea why this man put himself in the position of going to prison for something he didn’t do. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal.This book tells of his time: locked up with no hope of release, living the brutality of the unforgiving penitentiary system and finding his new purpose in life, as well as tales of his many run-ins with some of the world's most dangerous inmates. He later married, had a child and worked as a mechanic, but his life was turned upside down when he discovered a corpse in his house and removed it out of fear he would be blamed. Jamie Morgan Kane, who was convicted of murder after pleading guilty in 1984, has spent half his life in US jails.

They would sharpen them in either warm water, the hottest we ever got, or disinfectant we were given to mop the floor with. The brutal honesty, the funny stories mixed in with the bad and the authors general take on his life just kept me reading! It came up as suggestion randomly and I downloaded the sample and read the book fully within 3 days. It's been a long time coming but at last Jamie Morgan Kane has had his birth officially registered - on his 68th birthday. He hasnt let it effect his freedom now, instead after his release in 2018 he decided to share his story with us all.Convicted bank robber Jerry Lee, who was not one of Jamie's former prison mates, has told how he inked his own face in jail, using a homemade kit. Imagine arriving home to find a corpse in your living room: that's what happened to Jamie Morgan Kane, and it was the beginning of a mind-blowing nightmare that lasted over three decades. I have so many more questions and would love to hear or read more as the author finds out more about his past.

This book is the ultimate guide to what it is like behind bars in America, by a man who spent 34 years locked up for a crime he didn't commit.How the hell can somebody go to prison for 13yrs for a murder they did not commit, and end up staying for 34yrs is beyond me. He said from a young age he had been told he had been born on the Isle of Man and that his real name was Morgan James Kane. His full experiences are detailed in his book ' 34 Years in Hell: My Time Inside America's Toughest Prisons' published by Mirror Books. The calm narration, in the way that his writing appeared to take each day as it came, as just a part of life, made prison seem tough, unfair, but doable if you stay in shape, fight when necessary, but stay away from gangs and have a "You-do-your-thing-I'll-do-mine" attitude. Jamie worked through the night to dispose of the body, all the while disbelieving the situation he found himself in.
