When innocent Angie Stark takes the fall for her Porsche-driving boyfriend's stock fraud, she finds herself entombed in Wrigley Scrubs, an experimental white-collar prison. Wrigley is a modern-day do-the-girls hall, ruled with a firm hand by the governor, Miss Horsfall, and complete with tight uniforms and ferocious cat-spats - the first often shredded by the second!
Once there, she forms a thrillingly perverse bond with wardress Isobel Coker. But Isobel is having doubts about the regime. Will Angie be able to reassure her of its redemptive effects? And why is worldly, assertive Abby Gaunt, porn-film entrepreneur, sniffing around the prison's lease?
