Rch 2019 111 Joyce Mitchell was a messed up lonely woman living in the wildest part of upper New York State when she like many residents in that area went to work for the prison systemit seems prisons are a big industry in that part of the state She met and married another employee and they worked at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora for years with her job *being a supervisor of the prisoners who worked in the tailor shop they make than license plates it seems While *a supervisor of the prisoners who worked in the tailor shop they make than license plates it seems While she got friendly VERY friendly with convicted double murderer Richard Matt and cop iller David Sweat who used her vulnerability to develop a strong enough bond that she was willing to smuggle in the tools they needed to break outThe plan was for her to be waiting when they emerged from manhole cover outside the prison then they would all jump in her car and be off to Mexico and freedom But the night they made their escape she had a panic attack was taken to the hospital emergency room and freaked out enough to rat them out The next three weeks there was the biggest manhunt in New York history as they tried to survive long enough to get awayThe author of Dannemora is a lifelong resident of the area and former correctional officer and trainer who began his career at the Dannemora prison and he is a terrific writer This is at once a fascinating true crime story a look at the lengths to which a lonely woman can be manipulated and the conditions and circumstances both at the prison in uestion and throughout the prison system all the way to the Governor s office in Albany which led to the escape I particularly appreciated the revelations about the use of prison labor for profit the ethical lapses among the employees and the political mess that brought enough budget cuts to make it impossible for the guards to do their work as regulations dictatedWith thanks to Kensington BooksCitadel and NetGalley this is a strong four stars And I still don t get how Joyce s husband stuck with her and it annoys the hell out of me that she is still entitled to her entire pension Dannemora Two Escaped Killers Three Weeks of Terror and the Largest Manhunt Ever in New York StateThis is my second book on this breakout so I m fairly familiar with the subject The author retired from 25 years in corrections and was born and raised in that area He is currently a mu Dannemora is a fascinating work of non fiction I don t recall this event and read the book with no prior nowledge Based on a 2015 prison break and manhunt it s hard to stop reading once you start It s an intriguing and different look at how something like a manhunt plays out The difficulties the highs *And Lows Of The Operation It S * lows of the operation It s fascinating and relevant to society today It s a thought provoking well written and researched account of this event I recommend for anyone with an interest in the reality of what happened Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review In 2015 two inmates in the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora NY escaped through underground pipes in a daring escape that s This might be a controversial opinion but this book reminded me of In Cold Blood It begins with descriptive language setting the scene of the small town near where the prison break occurred The background information on the town the prison and the prisoners was fascinating The organization with each of these background sections follow.

In determining the appropriate mo Well written and researched account of not only the escape and manhunt but a detailed history of the prison prison system and corrections Of course I recall as does the author the media covering the shocking aspects of the case while completely ignoring the political incompetence that created the atmosphere for the protocol breeches All this led to one very expense labor intensive manhunt The police corrections officers those involved in *the actual search and the residents of the area are the *actual search and the residents of the area are the heroes in this page tuner The Governor in Not only is the narrative blunt but the author enables the reader to get an eye opening view not only into the escape of Richard Matt and David Sweat but into the NYS Department of Corrections the Clinton Correctional Facility at Dannemora as well as the restrictions and additional duties our correctional staff must perform without any increase in staffLt Gardner goes into the history of these two men and how they got to Clinton Correctional Matt and Sweat were cunning and able to manipulate their way into working at the tailor shops It was there that they encountered supervisor Joyce Mitchell who seemed to think she was above the regulations regarding interactions between staff and inmates She eventually smuggled the tools used by the men to cut through *their cell walls into the catwalks and into the metal tunnels that led to outside the walls * cell walls into the catwalks and into the metal tunnels that led to outside the walls even agreed to be their getaway driver she was unable to provide that service due to an anxiety attack that landed her in the hospital the night of the escapeBut it wasn t only Mitchell and her inappropriate behavior An escort guard who allowed Matt to skip going through the metal detector was also complacent Corcraft which operates several industries in the prison system who focused on fulfilling vendor orders than security matters Various other inmates guards and supervisors that saw Mitchell s friendliness with the inmate employees and failed to report it Or if they did were ignored by higher upsIt is exceedingly fortunate that these escapees didn t ill any civilians or police officers during their escape as well during the search Breaking into hunting camps Matt and Sweat gained shelter food supplies guns and ammunition as well as the alcohol which led to Sweat abandoning Matt and Matt s eventual confrontation but they didn t confront any of the owners who checked on their property during the searchGardner even goes into the results of the investigation performed by an outside agency into Clinton and the escape As expected supervisory civilian and uniformed personnel were found at fault Some were forced into retirement Some returned to their jobs after being penalized So who is to blame for the do with less ethic that led to empty wall towers insufficient manpower to perform inspections and inability to declare lock downs without Albany s approval That would be Albany who made the policies and procedures which failed and they didn t take any of the blame The only negative I could say is that it would have been a nice addition to have a map of the area around Clifton Correctional and the search area Being able to refer to it as the manhunt proceeded would have clarified the inmates journeyOtherwise excellent book Very accessible Writing style smooth and fast moving And on a personal note thanks to the men and women who were involved in the sea. Oners in their own homes as law enforcement from across the nation swept the rural wilderness near the Canadian border The manhunt made front page headlines as did the prison sex scandal involving both inmates and Joyce Mitchell and culminated in a dramatic and bloody standoffNow Charles A Gardner a lifelong resident of the community and a former correction officer who began his training at Clinton and ultimately oversaw the training of staff in twelve prisons including Clinton tells the whole story from an insider's point of view.
