Description - Hotel Kerobokan by Kathryn Bonella
You won't believe what happens inside Indonesia's most notorious jail!
FROM THE ACCLAIMED AUTHOR OF TRUE CRIME BESTSELLERS SNOWING IN BALI AND OPERATION PLAYBOY: Kathryn Bonella.
Welcome to Hotel Kerobokan, the ironic nickname for Kerobokan Jail, Bali's most notorious prison, which has been home to a procession of the infamous and tragic, true criminals you will have heard of: the Bali Bombers, Gold Coast beautician Schapelle Corby and the Bali Nine, among many others.
Backed up by hundreds of true life prisoner interviews, the truth about Hotel Kerobokan explodes off the page. In these filthy and disease-ridden cells, a United Nations of prisoners live crushed together in misery. Criminal gangs, petty thieves and small-time drug users share cells with killers and rapists. Hardened drug traffickers sleep alongside unlucky tourists, who've seen their holiday turn from paradise to hell over one ecstasy tablet.
Hotel Kerobokan reveals the true life wild 'sex nights' organised by corrupt guards for prisoners who have the money to pay, the rampant drug use, the suicides and killings, and days out at the beach. It exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to the outside, the criminal gang that rules the jail through terror, the corruption that means anything is for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners.
From the internationally bestselling author of Snowing in Bali and Operation Playboy and co-author of Schapelle Corby's autobiography, this is the shocking, true life inside story of Bali's most notorious jail.
Perfect for fans of true crime stories and authors like Rusty Young, James Phelps, Chopper Read and Underbelly.
