In this compilation of twenty short stories by Joe Tog, the criminal genre is nailed exactly as it was during the 70s and 80s - he experienced it - both inside prison and on the outside. Step by step he describes how a convicted murderer carried out an audacious escape from Pentridge Prison. An arsonist at work, along with bomb-making and how to morph a gun, are just some of the criminal subjects covered in this book. Card cheating, safe breaking and a street rort, all colourfully detailed as he segues from story to story. Twice on Interpol's Most Wanted list, Joe Tog escaped from two South Australian prisons as well as two Victorian prisons. Shot twice in the head during a shoot-out with police, his criminal background and willingness to lay bare his personal experiences through factual story-telling combine to give this book a ring of authenticity not usually found in True Crime.
