Within these walls : memoirs of a death house chaplain by Carroll Pickett( Book )

"Within These Walls is the memoir of Rev. Carroll Pickett, who spent fifteen years as the death house chaplain at "The Walls," the Huntsville unit of the Texas prison system.

All of them found in Reverend Pickett their last chance for an unbiased confessor who would look at them only as fellow humans, not simply as the convicted criminals the rest of society had already dismissed them as. This firsthand experience gave Reverend Pickett the unique insight needed to write an impassioned statement on the realities of capital punishment in America

FBI undercover : the true story of special agent "Mandrake" by Larry Wansley( Book )

5 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HE WAS A FLASHY, HIGH-ROLLING CON MAN ... A MILITANT STREET HUSTLER ... A FRONT MAN FOR THE MOB ... On TV and in the movies, FBI undercover agents are a dime a dozen. But in reality, only an elite handful have the unique combination of wit, instinct and daring to work these highly dangerous scams. For 10 years, Larry Wansley was one of them. A former detective bureau commander with the Compton, California, police department, Wansley graduated from the FBI Academy in 1973. After nabbing a Texas bank robber, he went underground in Los Angeles as part of the bureau's massive search for Patty Hearst. Then came the big sting: Operation Tarpit with another agent to play his high-living partner in crime-and the unwitting help of two talkative hookers-Wansley, called "Mandrake" by his fellow agents, set up a two-year, L.A.-based operation that netted 300 phony stock and bond dealers, truck hijackers, kidnappers, gun-runners, and killers, and recovered $42 million in stolen property. From there, Wansley moved coast-to-coast, working his scams on redneck southern crime bosses, kiddie porn producers, New York Mafia wiseguys, and more-and living each day with the heart-stopping knowledge that one wrong move meant death
