Upon Release From Prison has 20 reviews from all over the globe. I wrote Upon Release From Prison after I finished 7 years of prison time. Here is a review that explains it pretty well. In Glenn's first book, Roll Call, we follow B.J. from his childhood being shattered and a path he takes that ends in incarceration. It's a detailed journey that makes you feel you are there through it all. Upon Release picks up where Roll Call left off...B.J. has been released from prison, living in a shelter and reconnected with an old acquaintance Annette. Annette is newly sober and still struggling to leave her past behind as well.
This time our journey with him shows the difficulty he faces...not for the first time...of re acclimating to life as a free man. They have to find jobs to stay at the shelter. Not only are jobs hard to come by, but when you have a record and/or you are a recovering addict, your chances go way down of being hired. B.J. just wants to get his book out there and selling and encourage those in prison with their writing, art, etc. Nothing happens fast enough and the old life is always there calling and teasing with it's 'easy' money. Through a series of misunderstandings--B.J. is soon on the lamb--again!
Many of the characters from Roll Call return. Both friends like Damon and foes such as Detective Pincher. There are some real surprises in this book. It is more fiction than Roll Call. But Glenn continues to add his past 'real life' experiences into his writing. We once again are in Mexico among the cartels, in prison where shots are still called to handle things on the outside, Pincher is still a stinker. The writing is still captivating and keeps you hanging on to the end. Be prepared for a mental work-out as well because B.J.is still a runner.
**Language, violence and sensual situations. Considering the background of this book with drugs, gangs and prison, the author has kept all of this at a minimum.
Glenn Langohr's other books include: Roll Call 2.99 with kindle, Race Riots ( Prison Killers ), Lock Up Diaries ( Prison Killers Book 2 ), Gladiator ( Prison Killers Book 3 ) and Underdog ( Prison Killers Book 4 )

Here's a couple other reviews I like. "Locked up for a decade on drugs charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call, a story of his troubled life. The author was not content to tell the story through the protaganist perspective, instead he toggled the angle like a master director. A vivid, clamorous account of the U.S. War on Drugs." 

~ Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media

"Three intricate plots tell three separate stories that ultimately intersect in a not-for-Hollywood ending. The story is replete with drug culture and prison culture and police culture. Instead of some fictionalized or romanticized version of any of the cultures, there are just 'been there done that' accounts that leave no doubt that this is a world none of us ever want to encounter. There are no heroes in this book, there are only real people who face real problems and deal with them in real ways the only way they know how. The social and political commentary is delivered the same way as the fights, and the loving; full-on, live or die. This is a binary book, you are going to love it, or you are going to hate it."
