- DescriptionArt student Nick Wood risks selling a few Ecstasy tablets at a party to impress friends and ends up with a two year prison sentence. He hopes to spend his sentence in an open prison, the type he's read about in the papers. The ones often referred to as 'holiday camps'. Instead, his worst nightmare comes true. Locked up in HMP Blackthorpe, a prison kwn for its medieval-like squalor and brutal violence, Nick lives at the mercy of the drug barons and in fear of the lifers. Constantly stalked by danger he has to find a way to survive in the prison rife with heroin. To earn protection money he turns to the one thing he's good at - art. But can selling pictures to visitors be eugh to keep the mob at bay? Or will he be made an example of by the hard men and suffer the worst type of prison punishment? This book is based on the experiences of the author.
- Author BiographyAs a young man John Hoskison was a successful professional golfer. In 1992 he led Europe against the USA in the PGA Cup matches. However, in 1994 he broke a discipline he had maintained for 20 years and accepted a drink before driving home. On the short journey home he hit and killed a cyclist and received a three year prison sentence. John was able to cope with life and his prison sentence because of the incredible forgiveness of the widow. Since John was released from prison, he has spoken at over 300 schools, to over 100,000 pupils, about the need to say 'no' when necessary, whether it is to do with drugs, alcohol or simply speeding in a car.
