Robert B. Parker's Kickback: Spenser, #28
by Ace Atkins
When he set up a prank Twitter account for his vice principal, Dillon Yates never dreamed he could be brought up on criminal charges and sent to a lockdown juvenile facility in Boston Harbor, but that's exactly what happened.

She hires Spenser to find the truth behind the draconian sentencing. From the Harbor Islands to a gated Florida community, Spenser and trusted ally Hawk follow a trail with links to a shadowy corporation that runs New England's private prisons, eventually uncovering a culture of corruption and cover-ups in the old mill town, where hundreds of kids are sent off to for-profit juvie jails.
