Description - EscapeThe True Story of the Only Westerner Ever to Break Out of th by David McMillan

Klong Prem prison, Thailand. The 'Bangkok Hilton', where 600 foreigners wait and rot among the 12,000 inmates. Amidst the tragic, ruthless and forgotten, one man resolves to do what no other has done- escape. This is the true story of drug smuggler David McMillan's perilous break-out from Asia's most notorious prison. After being arrested at Don Muang airport, McMillan spent over a year in Klong Plem awaiting trial. He watched as the other foreign prisoners fell prey to disease, violence and despair. Death appeared to be their only way out, but he resolved that this would not be the end for him. Two weeks before a near-certain death sentence, McMillan escaped, never to be seen in Thailand again. In this gripping account, he reveals the nightmare of existence in this infamous jail and explains how he made his audacious exit.
