B A S E M E N T — Novel — Mark Rogers

Jail Front

Greenburg was like a lot of northeastern towns. It was bankrupt, ugly and filled with ignorant people. The healthy ones fled and the maimed, in-bred and elderly stayed behind. Businesses failed. Job lot stores, secondhand shops and filthy, dimly lit restaurants did their best to extract nickels and dimes from the populace. If a newspaper was blowing and tumbling down Main Street in a humid wind, it was more often than not the National Enquirer.
But Greenburg had something that other more successful towns didn’t: a preponderance of basements with high ceilings.

When a working class town in the northeast gets their fill of foreclosures and seizures, they turn to an experimental program that promises to put cash in their pockets: Housing non-violent offenders in portable jail cells in citizens’ basements.

A reader said BASEMENT unspools like, “… a combination of Elmore Leonard and The Simpsons.’
