In this compilation of twenty true stories by Joe Tog, the criminal genre is nailed exactly as it was during the 70's and the 80's - 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, 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 are all colourfully detailed as he segues from story to story.
