prisoner-in-the-kitchen
Winner of Simon & Schuster’s memoir contest in conjunction with AARP and the Huffington Post, comes a memoir of a man’s coming-of-age as a civilian cook in a maximum-security prison.

As food service supervisor in the kitchen of a maximum-security prison, William Bonham oversees a kitchen crew of convicts that prepares and serves each meal. Among his staff are Earl, a homely baker; Aldrich, a timid young dishwasher; Smoky Boy, the prison’s most feared and respected convict; Mackey, who claims to have cooked at Seattle’s Olympic Hotel in his pre-incarceration life; and Reed, a cook whose calm, witty demeanor wins over Bonham.

Over the next year, Bonham comes to care for his crew. Although he knows that these men have committed unforgiveable crimes, Bonham forms a camaraderie with them that borders on friendship—until a late-night incident calls his judgment into question.

FORCED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN FAMILY OR A MAN
SHE CHOSE COLD-BLOODED MURDER

A DAUGHTER’S DEADLY DECEPTION
The Jennifer Pan Story
by Jeremy Grimaldi

January 2017

Jennifer Pan seemed like the perfect daughter and ideal student. She was studying to become a pharmacist at the University of Toronto – or so her parents thought. What seemed like a happy family full of love was actually a household stuck in a web of lies. Deception led to violence, which ultimately led to murder.

Jeremy Grimaldi’s book A DAUGHTER’S DEADLY DECEPTION takes readers through a bone-chilling true-crime story about the double-life of Jennifer Pan and her deadly response to her father’s ultimatum.

“A hair-raising and revealing account of this harrowing case.”– Crime Traveller

Instead of attending school, Jennifer spent her days in the arms of her high school sweetheart, Daniel Wong, while working at a pizza parlor. In an attempt to relieve the pressure from her parents, she forged documents and lied about her whereabouts for years until her father discovered the truth. He gave her an ultimatum: choose her family or Daniel. Jennifer chose revenge and cold-blooded murder, recruiting three men to break into her home, tie her up, and kill her parents.

The story of Jennifer Pan’s double life is about the carefree world she always wanted and a world with unattainable expectations set by hard-working immigrant parents who fled Vietnam to ensure a better life for their children. When these two lives intersected, Jennifer was forced to choose between the two. Instead, she decided to create the perfect murder…or so she thought.

“The book is pure story: chronological, downhill, fast.”
– Globe and Mail

“A psychological thriller that is not so much a whodunit as a how-done-it and why-done-it.”
– South China Morning Post

NEWSFLASH!

June 18-19, 2016

Exceptional thriller SHANK, 99 cents, this weekend only

Dear readers,

This being the second newsletter this month we want to keep it real short, more of a newsflash than a letter.
We do not want you to miss out on a promotion we are running this weekend (June 18-19) when Shank, the debut novel by author Roy Harper is available for only 99 cents as an e-book on amazon.

Shank is an exceptional book, written under exceptional circumstances. Roy Harper has been incarcerated in Mississippi State Penitentiary since 1981. During this period he escaped three times, was instrumental in getting the notorious Unit 32 closed and penned an incredible novel, a fictitious story of -what else?- a man escaping from maximum security.

You can read more about Roy and Shank on our website. You can even submit a question to Roy.

We are extremely proud to have published Shank and hope you will take this opportunity to get yourself acquainted with a strong and highly original voice in crime fiction.

Your Crime Wave Press team
