Synopsis from publisher:

Television producer Bobbie Flint’s corporate bosses punish her with a transfer to a little-known division: a private high-security prison deep in the Florida Everglades. As the new warden, she must use her marketing skills to transform this hell on earth into something worse: a televised execution mill fueled by advertising and ratings. Bobbie’s success lands her at the feet of two formidable opponents – her leering boss and her own conscience – and into a lurid dead-end life of violence and sexual depravity.
