The main idea of this story is that the main character, Alex, is framed for murder and sent to prison in furnace penitentiary, but the world does not know what lies inside.

In the book there are man eating dogs with no skin that obey the guards and viciously murder anyone who gets in their way
These horrible creatures have 'ancient' gas masks stitched into their face and the take the prisoners from their cells in the night and preform 'surgery' on them.
