Product Description

Product Description

A Prayer Before Dawn is the true story of one man’s fight to survive inside Klong Prem Prison, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. Billy Moore travelled to Thailand to escape a life of drug addiction and alcoholism. He managed to overcome his inner demons for a time but relapsed after trying ya ba – a highly-addictive form of methamphetamine.

Moore’s life quickly descended into chaos, drug dealing and violence until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value. A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it’s the story of one man’s struggle to survive in one of the world’s toughest prisons. It’s also a story of redemption in the most unlikely of places.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Read !! 30 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I know Billy and know of his drug use/crime/addiction and can vouch of the authenticity of the book. A brilliant gripping account of a journey of addiction ending up in Thailand's most ruthless prison. An amazing read coupled with how this man has turned his life around and is now dedicated to helping other addicts find recovery. A fantastic read by a gentleman i am proud to call my friend

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic reading! 14 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I met Billy a couple of months ago and he told me had written this book and I so I thought I would read it. It was horrific what Billy went through and the things he saw were terrible, but I am glad I read it. It just shows you exactly what the impact has on Prisoners and what they have to go through. They do not even have their basic human rights which is awful.
