I had wanted to write a story about sexual blackmail for some time. Although such a thing can occur in many settings and take different guises I settled on a prison officer because prison is a harsh environment, and such a position gives them a great deal of leverage with those who visit their loved ones. In creating Joe, sexual blackmail was only the start. It is but a sub-part of corruption in a deeper sense. So I tried to make him a deeply corrupt individual and for the sexual blackmail element to arise ‘naturally’ from his character and his situation.
His motive is simple – sex….sex with his prisoners wives, sisters, mothers or daughters…..a story of abused power and abusive sex.
Senior Prison Officer Joe Harrison is a very bad man; he is about as corrupt as it is possible for a man to be. But he likes being corrupt, revels in the power it gives him, especially over the female relatives of the prisoners he has locked up.
But extracting sexual favours in exchange for ‘protecting’ their men is only the start; he manipulates all those around him for his own selfish ends.
He is a memorable creation, as bad as bad can be, he has no concept of morality or guilt. His only ‘good’ are his own greedy desires, and he does what he has to make sure those appetites are well satisfied. This is the story of a man driven by dark needs, a man who uses people, especially women as pawns and toys in his own game of life.
