And he did it all the legal way. Chance is nothing like his homeboy, Calhoun, a drug-selling deadbeat who won't get his life together, not even for his two kids. Chance's life changes in an instant when he is falsely accused of murder and sent to prison.

Chance worked for Microsoft, owned his own home and car, and was trying to start up his own computer business all by the age of 20. One night while laying in bed after declining to go out with his friend, the police burst into his house and gave him the beating of his life, then arrested him for the murder of a police officer. Chance was dumbfounded as well as innocent. After spending 7 yrs in prison, he was released after turning state's evidence against the crooked warden and one of the correction officers. During his time in prison he was assaulted numerous times as well as raped. His mother was raped in the home she was staying in as well as forced to bring drugs into the prison to get Chance to sell them. She got caught and went to prison herself, where she died from a stroke. When Chance got released from prison he hired a private investigator to find out how and why he was framed and by who. The answers will shock you. The only thing wrong with this book is that the editing is horrible.
