Escape From Furnace #2: Solitary, by Alexander Gordon Smith (Farrar Straus Giroux, 2010)

Framed for murder, imprisoned for life in the hellish Furnace Penitentiary, Alex Sawyer must escape if he wants to avoid the horrible fate awaiting him in the bowels of the Earth. But when his plan to break out fails, landing him in solitary confinement, he’s treated to even more horrifying revelations. You don’t die in Furnace; they turn you into a monster … or worse. In this tense, harrowing, claustrophobic sequel to Lockdown, Smith puts the nightmarish screws to his hero. Part psychological thriller, part horror, this’ll have you alternately wanting more, and dreading the next installment.
