"In Hotel Kerobokan's filthy and disease-ridden cells, a United Nations of prisoners - Australians, Americans, Germans, Brazilians, French, English, Scottish, Mexicans, Italians, Balinese and others - live crushed together in misery. Petty thieves and small-time drug users share cells with killers, rapists and gangsters. Hardened drug traffickers sleep alongside unlucky tourists, who've seen their holiday turn from paradise to hell over one ecstasy tablet.
Hotel Kerobokan is the shocking inside story of the jail and its inmates, revealing the wild 'sex nights' organised by corrupt guards for prisoners who have money to pay, the rampant drug use, the suicides and killings and the days out at the beach. It takes you behind the grim walls and exposes the jail's role in supplying high-grade drugs to tourists and dealers on the outside, the gang that rules the jail with terror, the corruption that means anything and everything are for sale, and the squalor and misery endured by prisoners in stinking, overcrowded conditions."
