Summary (From the publisher):

The Glass Cell combines a quintessential Highsmith mystery with a penetrating critique of the psychological devastation wrought by the prison system, offering a bleak and compelling portrait of daily prison life that is, sadly, as relevant today as it was when the book was first published in 1964.
