5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 5 Jan 2009
In short the best "prison hell" book you can buy. Packed full of incident and detail. The author does not portray himself as some poor victim but simply concentrates on his experiences of the Venezuela prison system. Do not hesitate to buy this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Papillon This Is Not, 5 Jan 2009
In short do not buy this book. The author of this book is a self confessed, convicted, unrepentent drug dealer and seems to view himself as the victim. The book itself is self indulgent and boring. If you are looking for a true and gripping account of prison hell abroad then "In the Shadow of Papillon" eats this for breakfast and still has room for coffee and extra toast.
