From the Inside Flap:

Day 167 --- New Year's Day --- Tuesday 1st January 2002 --- 6.00 pm

I miss my wife, I miss my family and I miss my friends. But the only enemy I have to contend with is boredom and it's a killer.

For many prisoners, it is the time when they first experiment with drugs. To begin with, offered by the dealers for nothing, and when they want more, in exchange for a phone card and an ounce of tobacco. Finally, when they're hooked, they'll give anything for a fix---including their life.

Heaven, Jeffrey Archer's final volume in his trilogy of prison diaries, covers the period of his transfer from a medium security prison, HMP Wayland, to his eventual release on parole in July 2003. It includes a shocking account of the traumatic time he spent in the notorious Lincoln jail and the events that led to his incarceration there, and also shines a harsh light on a system that is close to its breaking point.


Told with humor, compassion, and honesty, the diary closes with a thought-provoking manifesto that will be applauded by reform advocates and the prison population alike.

Praise for author Jeffrey Archer:

"The books form the most detailed and illuminating account of life spent under lock and key since Dostoyevsky."
---Mail on Sunday (UK)

"Compelling reading. . . . Archer knows how to tell a story. He exposes real problems in the penal system."
---Houston Chronicle on A Prison Diary

"A tale that is not only important but true."
---The Washington Post on A Prison Diary

"The finest thing that he's ever written . . . so clear and crisp is the prose, a vivid and almost ‘live' account that bubbles with Dickensian detail and a Shavian sense of outrage.... Riveting."
---Independent on Sunday (UK) on A Prison Diary

"Surprisingly effective . . . a devastating critique . . . written simply and directly."
---Sunday Times (UK) on A Prison Diary

"False Impression...may be a worthy successor to the still bestselling The Da Vinci Code....Sail along from one high crime to the next."
---Liz Smith, The New York Post

"Archer's usual plot twists and fast pace make for an enjoyable page-turner."
---Library Journal (starred review) on False Impression
