Where do I go from here? : The life story of a forger by Roger Benton( Book )

2 editions published in 1936 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roger Benton (the pseudonym of a famous living ex-convict) decided, when he was twenty-two years old, that 'smart money' was easier to get than wages. He started on his career as confidence man and thief, which was to keep the police and detective agencies of America on a chase for the greater part of two decades. After having served his third term for forgery, he resolved to live legitimately for the rest of his life. During his prison career he was an inmate of Louisiana State Prison, pawn of the Huey Long machine, where he saw a reign of terror, bloodshed, and even murder; Atlanta Penitentiary, where he was for several weeks a cellmate of the late Gene Debs and was in the confidence of Chapman and Anderson, notorious mail truck bandits; Sing Sing Prison, under Warden Lawes' enlightened policies; and Walkill, New York States' experimental prison. He tells in detail the story of his incarcerations, many tales of prison violence; describes the narcotics traffic at Atlanta, the intricacies of prison politics, and the underworld 'grapevine'; reveals the technique of a successful forger and confidence man. His story is full of the drama of flight and man hunts. But more important than these are his revelations of the inner life of a criminal."--Jacket
