9781840187045: Hell's Prisoner: Jailed for over Eleven Years in Indonesia's Most Notorious Prisons

Prepare yourself for a journey into the Indonesian penal system. A world where murder, torture and fights to the death are the norm. Where the guards turn a blind eye to the lethal weapons prisoners carry ...and use almost daily. Hell's Prisoner is the powerful story of one man's battle to survive in some of the world's cruellest and most inhumane prisons. Christopher Parnell, wrongly accused of drug trafficking, found himself catapulted into the maelstrom of madness and degradation that exists within Indonesian jails. Surrounded by murderers and sadistic violent criminals, he soon learned that life can be as cheap as a bowl of rice or a cigarette. During his imprisonment, Parnell was subjected to unthinkable sessions of torture, both physical and psychological. Left to starve and fight every day for his survival, he was forced to eat everything from cockroaches to human flesh. This is an incredible tale of fatalism and bureaucracy, of corruption and the horrors of prison, but most of all it is a no-holds-barred account of what the human spirit can endure.

Review:

"Parnell tells his story with a gritty honesty ... a gripping book" Daily Mail "Vivid in description and dialogue, with characters that you wouldn't want to meet anywhere, let alone in the confines of jail, Parnell's story is a film waiting to be made" Morning Star "An incredible account, which exposes the murkier side of human nature" Northern Echo
