In a long-awaited return to his best-selling prison series, James Phelps will lift the lid on Australia's most infamous prison - HM Prison Pentridge, the former home of Mark 'Chopper' Reed and Ned Kelly.

As well as writing bestselling and critically acclaimed biographies of Dick Johnson and Johnathan Thurston, James established himself as Australia's number-one true crime writer with his bestselling prison series, including Australia's Hardest Prison, Australia's Most Murderous Prison, and Australia's Toughest Prisons.
