An eye-opening, thought-provoking and mind-blowing account from a genuine prison governor of what it's really like behind bars.

How do you bring order to the lawless?

The Secret Prison Governor has spent decades surrounded by every type of prisoner known to man, from petty thieves and common drug dealers to crime bosses and dangerous serial killers.

Since starting as a rookie, he has experienced the reality of the UK's harsh prison system and the hard challenge of ruling those within it.

In his own words, the Secret Prison Governor spares no detail of prison life, whether that's breaking up shiv fights, investigating and crushing vast networks of contraband, negotiating with hardened criminals or dealing with full-scale cellblock gang wars.

This is the brutal truth of what life is really like behind bars.

“Uncensored. Unedited. Unbelievable???More like UNTRUE”

Like many ex and serving prison staff who have reviewed this book.
I have to question it's validity.
Not only some of the terms used. But the stories are (to me) far fetched. Example, I googled the murder by... More

“Extremely Enjoyable”

I usually enjoy books of this genre. I have also previously read books written by ex-prison officers and a prison doctor, so I decided to buy this as well. I have to say, I did not regret my decision. I thoroughly... More
