During Jessica's lecture in a woman's prison with an all-female staff, the doctor is found, killed by a morphine injection, with convict Mary's fingerprints on, but this is proven not to be the murder weapon. Next there is a revolt, which takes Jessica hostage but is ill-prepared: even the demands are a matter for debate. Jessica is now asked to investigate, and while she digs into malpractices apparently involving warden Gates, who has political ambition, and conflicts involving staff as well as prisoners, another staff member is killed. Jessica discovers things are not as they appear. Written by

During the riot, the prisoners (particularly hotheaded Kathryn) like to "rack rounds," chambering shells into the firing chambers of their pump shotguns - some do it three or four times over the course of the hour. But if a shell is already IN the chamber, it would fly out to make room for the next one. The weapons are obviously empty. See more

Mrs. Fletcher, this whole thing may just blow to hell... but if you don't try to defend me, you'll probably survive.
