Publisher's Summary

James Phelps explores all the questions that we can only barely imagine the answers to about Australia's toughest jails. This is a brutal and honest account of life inside Australia's toughest jails, and all is not as you would expect.

Do women rape each other? Do guards really trade 40-cent phone cards for sex? And do you think the most dangerous inmate in Australia is a man?

This is the most comprehensive ever account of women's prison life yet. You will hear about rapists, drug dealers, fallen celebrities and Australia's most feared prisoner: the self-mutilating murderer, Rebecca Butterfield.

Great story - did not like the narration

While the stories were interesting I believe a female narrator or at least a mix would have made this easier to listen to
I also had problems with the download

Needs a better Narrater

The Narrater used a posh, almost plum in mouth 'accent when speaking as a woman, not quite the way you want to hear someone talk8ng about drugs, dildos and sex. Making it a struggle to get through.
Might have been better if narrated by a female with a broad Aussie accent.

So horrible I couldn't finish it!!

i listened to the other book this writer wrote about Goulburn Goal which i enjoyed bit this one i can't even finish! The language is full on and found it so hard to listen too. The storyline is mostly about sex which is understand happens but the whole part i got through was based on it.

Very disappointed. Don't waste your time.
