Book Description

1 Mar 2011
There are places in the world that are run by gangsters, terrorists and guerilla groups, who live only by their own violent code. Few who have been there are prepared to speak about what they have seen...but Norman Parker is one of them. While serving 24 straight years in prison for murder and manslaughter, Norman gained a degree in criminology. He emerged from prison a changed man and, in his bestselling Parkhurst Tales series, graphically detailed the cruel realities of life on the inside. In Dangerous People, Dangerous Places, he turns his attention to the world's most terrifying organisations - from notorious drug dealers and violent gangs, to coldblooded professional killers and terrorists who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. To seek them out he travelled from London to Colombia, and Haiti to Israel. He uncovered stories of violence and corruption - both at home and abroad - and he relates them with the insight that comes from spending decades alongside Britain's most dangerous criminals. Written with compelling frankness, this is a must-read for anyone intrigued by the darkest corners and the most dangerous characters on the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought you'd got lost 5 Aug 2007
By Robert P. Splaine VINE VOICE
Your attitude to the penal system, and how it works in the UK,
will decide if you like any of Mr Parker's books. I strongly
believe in giving someone a second chance, and Norman has
grasped his 2nd chance with both hands and done so.Unlike
his prison books,this is set around people, and dangerous
people. Having nearly got killed in doing the research
for this book. The book is set in chapters of people
who he has interviewed, the IRA the most notorious child
killer, makers of cocaine and many more. These were
articles in lads mags, (though l had never read them).
Everyone is real, it puts you there, and as much as
Norman is a very literate person, he still calls a spade,
a spade instead of going into a thesaurus, to look for
a posher word to impress. In doing this makes it a great
book to read.I would recommend it whole heartily, but
then again, l rate all his books with 5 *.
Well done Norman, but if l have to criticise you,be
a bit quicker in getting your next book out, l thought
you'd retired Norman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, good subject matter 18 Dec 2013
This is an excellent book. Well written by a writer who knows his stuff and can relate to a wide range of people around the world. I am desperately trying not to read it too quickly so that it will be here for my holiday. Very worthwhile.
