Purgatory: A Prison Diary Volume 2

Jeffrey Archer


On July 19, 2001, following a conviction for perjury, overseas bestselling writer Jeffrey Archer was once sentenced to 4 years in felony. Prisoner FF8282, as Archer is referred to now, spent the 1st 3 weeks within the infamous HMP Belmarsh, a high-security legal in South London, domestic to murderers, terrorists and a few of Britain's so much violent criminals.

On the final day of the trial, his mom dies, and the world's press accompany him to the funeral. On returning to legal, he is put on the lifer's wing, the place a cellmate sells his tale to the tabloids. Prisoners and guards many times line up outdoor his phone to invite for his autograph, to jot down letters, and to hunt suggestion on their appeals.

For twenty-two days, Archer was once locked in a telephone with a assassin and a drug baron. He made up our minds to exploit that point to jot down an hour-by-hour diary, detailing the worst 3 weeks of his life.

When A criminal Diary was once released in England, it was once condemned by means of the legal specialists, and praised through the critics.
