The infamous Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, in 2015 became the site of one of the most famous prison breaks in modern American history. But the conditions that made possible the notorious escape and the massive manhunt that ensued had festered for many years.

Having earned the nickname of “Little Siberia”, the brutal winters contributed to the already depressing façade of the facility. During the long, dark hours, the wind howled outside and sounded like ghosts haunting the halls…


Michael H. Blaine grew up on his family’s farm in Peru, New York. He left behind his work on the farm and at the local mill to pursue a career in the New York State prison system as a Corrections Officer. He eventually earned the ranks of Sergeant and Lieutenant. At the same time, he rose to become one of the USA’s premier performing Hypnotists. As an author, he documents his experiences within the New York State prison system.
