The Glass Cell by Patricia Highsmith

 

Description: Philip Carter has spent six years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. On his release his beautiful wife is waiting for him. He has never had any reason to doubt her. Nor their friend, Sullivan. Carter has never been suspicious, or violent. But prison can change a man.

Opening: It was 3.35pm, Tuesday afternoon, in the State Penitentiary, and the inmates were returning from the workshops.

When Highsmith started communicating with a prisoner she was drawn into his story and this is the fictionalised account.
