Prison Break with Mark Dapin

Join local writer and interviewer Claire Halliday, in conversation with author Mark Dapin.

From Shantaram to the Bangkok Hilton - Prison Break by Mark Dapin is the rollicking, real-life stories of the world's most wanted Australians.

The true-crime tales behind the myths of Gregory Roberts, John Killick and more of Australia's most wanted men are masterfully told, with Mark Dapin's meticulous research and unprecedented access to ex-prisoners, prison officers and police - as well as ASIO files and witnesses.

Prison Break tells the real story behind Australia's most audacious prison escapes and proves that, sometimes, the truth is even more compelling than the myth.
