    TO ESCAPE FROM A TEXAS JAIL OR PRISON ONCE is unusual. To do it four times is incredible. To do it four times in five years and always on Friday the 13th is the stuff of legend. Welcome to the world of Steven Russell. Con artist. Thief. Swindler. Embezzler. Hopeless romantic.

    A husband and father, Russell was a church organist, prosperous businessman, and one time Boca Raton cop before turning to his life of crime. Arrested for a string of felonies, with a specialty in fraud, his real expertise turned out to be his uncanny ability to escape from jail. Between 1993 and 1998, he orchestrated a series of prison breaks that were as audacious as they were ingenious. Using whatever unlikely materials were at hand --- a Magic Marker, a pay phone, a walkie-talkie, a pair of stolen bright red women's stretch pants --- along with an innate talent for analytical thinking and boundless quantities of sheer nerve, Russell again and again arranged his own "early releases" from jail. Unfortunately, for Russell, staying out of jail is another matter entirely.

    Over the years, it became increasingly clear that Russell's talent for escape is matched only by his knack for getting arrested. One thing always seems to trump Steven Russell's careful planning, cool ahead, and instinct for self-preservation --- love. Russell cannot resist the urge to try and spring the great love of his life --- a fellow inmate named Philip Morris.

    In I Love You Philip Morris, journalist Steve McVicker goes right to the heart of this improbable-but-true story of crime, punishment, and passion. Thanks to unprecendented and exclusive access to Russell, his family, and his friends, he retraces Russell's journet from small-town businessman to flamboyant white collar-criminal and jailhouse Houdini. It's the darkly comic tale of a man with the spectacular ability to manipulate almost everyone he meets, yet who is himslef helpless in the face of love.
