Product description

Review

'All the staples of the prison memoir are here: sadistic guards, an attempted break-out, the terrors of solitary confinement, the joys of freedom ...The result is a truly gripping piece of testimony.' -- The Daily Mail

'The book is filled with characters ranging from outrageous to inspiring, and Young layers on the texture – sights, sounds, smells – until we feel as though we have visited the place. Travel literature of a very special and captivating kind.' -- Booklist

Book Description

A true story of friendship, cocaine and South America's strangest jail.
