Christopher Chance was the last Brit to be shackled and hauled out of that infamous Spanish hellhole before it closed its gates on decades of disgraceful cruelty. Along with the rest of the remaining inmates, he was transferred to another prison when the authorities slid back the bolts for the last time. Chance's story begins on the day he entered the jail and encountered the innate racism of the prison staff and inmates. Intimidation and constant bullying by Spanish gypsies, gangsters, and heroin dealers forced Chance to become ultra-violent, while psychotic prison officers peddled booze and drugs, and performed barbaric acts on inmates. In Carabanchel, Chance tells how he forged a band of international brothers from the chaotic human rubble in order to survive.
