Product Description:

“Makes the Shawshank Redemption look like a holiday camp” – NOTW

After a SWAT team smashed down stock-market millionaire Shaun Attwood’s door, he found himself inside of Arizona’s deadliest jail and locked into a brutal struggle for survival.

Shaun’s hope of living the American Dream turned into a nightmare of violence and chaos, when he had a run-in with Sammy the Bull Gravano, an Italian Mafia mass murderer.

In jail, Shaun was forced to endure cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, dead rats in the food and the sound of skulls getting cracked against toilets. He meticulously documented the conditions and smuggled out his message.

Join Shaun on a harrowing voyage into the darkest recesses of human existence.

Hard Time provides a revealing glimpse into the tragedy, brutality, dark comedy and eccentricity of prison life.

Featured worldwide on Nat Geo Channel’s Locked-Up/Banged-Up Abroad Raving Arizona.

About the Author:

Shaun moved to Arizona with only student credit cards and became a stock-market millionaire. He threw rave parties, distributed Ecstasy and a SWAT team smashed his door down. In jail, Shaun used a tiny pencil sharpened on the door to document the conditions: dead rats in the food, cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, gang murders and violence... His writing turned the international media spotlight on the jail. Upon his release from prison in the United States, Shaun Attwood returned to England, where he is now rebuilding his life. He regularly speaks to audiences of young people about the perils of drugs and the horrors of prison life.

have i missed party time ?
Sounds interesting
How do you go this kind of jail for selling ecstasy when this country you murder people in the street and go to Butlins with a ps4 to play all day in your own cell
Simple really, you don't go to Butlins with a PS4 in this country if you murder someone, you have over exaggerated the situation, most likely following a Sun headline.

Heat to the OP.
I met the guy who wrote this book he's story is incredible
