Editorial Reviews

Review

  • A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction--sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh's Traffic--of America's war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr. Locked up for a decade on drugs charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call. A vivid, clamorous account of the war on drugs. --Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media, 770 Broadway, N.Y Yk
  • "Whacks you aside the head with the force of a baseball bat. Langohr's incredible description of his fight for survival in prison has 'screenplay' written all over it." John South, American Media

From the Author

Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home with a death wish and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell's Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him with Organized Crime charges. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn't stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church and loves to reach out to other prisoners to help them turn their lives around. He speaks as a guest Lecturer at Criminal Justice colleges and writes articles for newspapers. "I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders, where in prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape."

The author will gift his books FREE from the Kindle store to those who can't afford it. Glenn Langohr rollcallthebook@gmail.com lockdownpubishing.com

I thank the author for writing and getting the word out about crimes in prison! This needs to be told and exposed! Sometimes the men who commit the crime become the victims of those who tend to feel like they are above the law! I know because I have witnessed it first hand for myself in a womens facility! Then you Glenn for getting your story and the truth out for others to hear! This extra non-sence in prisons needs to come to a halt!

This book is great for those who can relate to that lifestyle and see the similarities of their own. For those who cant relate to the lifestyle id recommend it to even more because those who are unaware of the way other people live will be amazed and in suspense of the way Author Glenn Langohr goes into depth in this memoir. Not only is the story great but Glenn's technique is great and very inspirational for those wanting to write a memoir or life story.

Format: Paperback
Roll Call is an intense look into the criminal underworld and prison by a man who has really done time due to his convictions in California's criminal justice machinery. This fictional tale is taken from the author's real life story. He incorporates real life events and a look into modern day times into this account to give readers a mesmerizing story of what it's really like in the drug world. From Mexican drug cartels to street gangs to prison gangs it's all here in Roll Call. Read with the insight of a person who lived the life he is talking about. This is not a Hollywood glamorization or a rap video this is authentic drama with real life anecdotes and feelings from a person who experienced what he is writing about. It is his cross to bear and he shares his story with readers so that they can decide the issues of right and wrong and morality that goes along with all the facets of life. A tale set in Southern California it touches on every aspect of the drug world hierarchy. The book reads like a movie but doesn't romanticize the drug trade like so many blockbusters do, it humanizes it and the author does a good job of showing the reality of it all. Big kudos to Glenn for writing such an amazing book.

Roll Call is a compelling and page-turning read. Told from the perspective of his own time in prison, tossed with a few bits here and there of fiction. The reader gets an upclose glimpse of what it's really like behind bars and what can happen with those close to you.

It's a long read, well over seven hundred pages, and at times, it gets a bit dry. But as the character's backgrounds emerge, the present begins to make sense and I found myself hoping that BJ would turn his life around. If you put your mind to it, you can do anything. Life is all about choices and Roll Call has good choices and bad, depicting consequences of both. It took me awhile, but I eventually got to the point I couldn't put this book down - I HAD to know what happened next. I was definitely not disappointed and glad that I stuck with it.

I had a hard time with this book. I liked the plot line and detail but at the same time this is what I also struggled with. There were a ton of misspellings, formatting is horrible on the kindle (like 200+ chapters which is ridiculous) and the story jumped all over the place.

When I did figure out where the story was at, it was a good read.

I got this for free through the lending library of Kindle so given that I was OK with it. But if I paid more than $2 for it I would be very disappointed.

Format: Paperback
Glenn has managed to put into writing the nightmarish story of so many people who have travelled a similar path. Actions, reactions, consequences, questions, changes and challenges are all addressed in his book. The important message though is that through all of it, Glenn never did quite lose his focus on God and God never gave up on Glenn! Teachers are always quite while students are taking their tests!

Roll Call touches on the struggles of a young man who grew up in an abusive household, struck out on his own to try and do better for himself and eventually took a bunch of wrong turns in the name of instant gratification (both money and drugs). The main character still tried to live by a code of conduct, even in the world of drugs where the common code is anarchy. In prison, he discovered that two wrongs don't make a right, but will help you survive. His most important discovery is after his release on parole... That it is nearly impossible to become free of the corrections system unless you have an education, career and home already waiting for you upon release.

This book is intended to raise awareness of what struggles a newly released inmate will have to do to survive and raises the question of what others can do to facilitate their transition back into society in such a way that they don't go back to jail.

Keep up the awesome work, Glenn! I'm looking forward to reading more!

I couldn't put this book down. I read this one after reading Underdog. Glenn has a way with words that capture the reader's attention from start to finish. Having a son who is an addict and also served time in prison, I'm rewarded with information on what his life has been like from another person's perspective. Glenn's books are very honest and enlightening to those of us who haven't experienced the raw pain of being addicted or locked up. It's not that most of us haven't done something we could've been locked up for,it's a matter of who gets caught. Illegal drugs will be the downfall of our society and Glenn takes the reader through the whole process of manufacturing, dealing and addiction. Thank you Glenn! Keep up the good work.
