a thrilling tale of danger and suspense, all set in the unfamiliar realm of a prison.

(PRWEB) July 15, 2014 -- The Captain has been working at the prison for decades, and he’s proud of the work he does. He works to support his beloved wife, Maura, and their two daughters, and they are foremost on his mind when he finds himself in a dangerous hostage situation, according to the story in this new novel. As the Captain tries to keep himself and his coworkers alive, flashbacks share the events that lead to the critical peril in which he is embroiled.

Although the Captain is known for his evenhanded fairness and ability to listen to inmates, others among the staff are not so able to submerge the distaste with which they view the men under their watch. These flashbacks detail the normal day that led to the hostage-taking and paints a portrait of the ordinary men and women who work within prison systems across the country. Will the Captain see his family again, or will his work end his life? “No Place Like Home” is a thrilling tale of danger and suspense, all set in the unfamiliar realm of a prison. Readers will be intrigued by the mystery and the action, and educated about life within the penal system.

Author Keith Hellwig is a Wisconsin native; born and raised in Omro, he spent some time in Oshkosh and settled to raise his family in Fond du Lac. Hellwig has served as a corrections officer himself for more than three decades and is now a line captain at a state maximum-security facility. This is his first book.
