“A Life in The Balance: The Billy Wayne Sinclair Story”
is a savage book. Because that’s what prison is. It tells the story of an inmate who ultimately endured 40 years behind bars in Louisiana, much of it at Angola, once known as the bloodiest prison in the nation. Its firsthand accounts of fatal stabbings and beatings, prisoner on prisoner rapes and assaults, exposes the toll that the convict code takes on inmates.
Readers accompany Billy Sinclair on his journey to rehabilitation and redemption as he becomes a national award-winning writer behind bars with little hope he will ever be released. We meet the woman standing behind him with a fierce love that endured despite the hardships and challenges they both faced.
