This book chronicles the pick of Australian jailbreaks.
The most notorious prisons and escapees are here - names like Grafton, Pentridge and Boggo Road, Russell 'Mad Dog' Cox, Ray Denning and Darcy Dugan. These are extraordinary stories, ranging from sheer brutality to love-conquers-all. Some are full of incredible twists and turns, others are tinged with sadness and loss. In all, there is a desperation that comes from being locked away and dying to get out. Jail escapees are forever looking over their shoulder. They can trust no one. They may not make it. They may be shot dead. It's a huge risk to take.
From the Boggo Road Fun Run to tales of cannibalism, from sheer brutality to crimes of passion this engrossing true crime collection is the only one of its kind devoted to Australian prison breaks. Gripping and real stories give a chilling insight into lives gone wrong.
Features an eight-page picture section.
