Dog eat dog by Edward Bunker. This is the tale of three unremorseful criminals with two felony convictions apiece and no more chances. Under California's 'Three Strikes' law, one more conviction - even for shoplifting - carries a mandatory life sentence with no prospect of remission. But a law intended to deter career criminals has the opposite effect on these three. Combined they have spent a lifetime behind bars and have no idea, or intention, of leading a straight life.
