In 1946 six convicts obtained guns, captured the cell house and took nine custodial officers as hostages, one of whom was the author's father. Ultimately, three of the inmates and two officers were killed. In Alcatraz Justice, Ernest Lageson presents a riveting and exciting account of the murder trial of the three surviving insurgents, and a keen insight into the criminal justice system.
