Prepare yourself for a journey into the indonesian penal system, a world where murder, torture and fights to the death are the norm. 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.

About the Author:

Christopher V.V. Parnell was born in Sydney in 1953. After leaving school at 14, he became an apprentice jockey. At the age of 19, he left for Papa New Guinea. After 25 years of travelling throughout Asia he returned to Australia, where he now lives with his wife and son.

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 *
