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 book

Amazing book and the narration really suits the book. Will read the other titles from the same writer & narrator.

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

Narration is grating

the 'female' voice' the male narrator puts on for female characters is totally irritating and third rate.

Very interesting. However!!!

I feel like the narrating should’ve been done by a male and a female, you made females sound weak and vulnerable and pathetic when that’s not how we are at all, overall the book was amazing very insightful and very interesting but I think if you gonna write about women’s prisons and the women that are in prison then you should probably use a woman’s voice for those parts.

Condescending narrator.

Interesting book.
Needs a better narrater.
Sounded like he was reading a kids book. Sounded quite condescending towards women.

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.
