Lockdown is book one of the Furnace series. I am very interested how this series will continue. Alex has started a career as a petty thief. One night a routine break-in goes horribly wrong. Men dressed in all black have killed his best friend Toby and framed Alex for his murder. Alex is on the run for murder. All murderers are sent to "The Furnace" for a life sentence. The Furnace is a brand new prison with no potential for escape. After finishing the book, I still have so many questions. Who were the men in black? Why did the men frame Alex? Will Alex ever get out of Furnace? You will have to read the Furnace series to find out any of the answers.
