About this ebook

 Written from his cell and smuggled out page by page, Colin Martin’s autobiography chronicles an innocent man’s struggle to survive inside one of the world’s most dangerous prisons. After being swindled out of a fortune, Colin was let down by the hopelessly corrupt Thai police. Forced to rely upon his own resources, he tracked down the man who conned him and, drawn into a fight, he accidentally killed that man’s bodyguard. Colin was arrested, denied a fair trial, convicted of murder and thrown into prison, where he remained for 8 years. Honest and often disturbing, but told with a surprising humour, Welcome to Hell is the remarkable story of how Colin was denied justice again and again.

I bought this ebook as I left Phuket Airport, and couldn't stop reading - I finished it the same day. Very little people can imagine what he and many others have experienced. As I was reading through the chapters, I waited for the justice to prevail, just like he did week in and week out. It's a good read.
