Product description

'There are 3,000 drugged-up psychopaths, armed to the teeth with blades, shooters and bombs. That's the only way I can describe Yare. It's a murderous viper's nest of assassins, cut throats and killers'. When James Miles and his best friend Paul Loseby were caught smuggling ten kilos of cocaine out of Caracas, Venezuela, they couldn't deny their guilt. Young and naive, the lads had thought the one-off drug mule job would be a passport to a better life. But in reality it was a ticket to hell ...They were sentenced to thirty years and flung into the world's deadliest prison system, ending up in the notorious Yare. A place where drugs and weaponry are currency and the rules are: there are no rules. This is the gripping true-life story of how two men endured untold savagery in the most appalling conditions. It's about what it's like to witness murder and rape every day, fearing you'll be next. How it feels to join a dangerous Latino gang and eat dead rats in order to survive. And, what you do when you're at the centre of a riot between thousands of men with machine guns. As seen on Channel 5's "Banged Up Abroad", this is the most shocking prison story ever told and an inspiring account of human endurance.

'There are 3,000 drugged-up psychopaths, armed to the teeth with blades, shooters and bombs. That's the only way I can describe Yare.' When James Miles and his best friend Paul Loseby were caught smuggling 10 kilos of cocaine out of Venezuela, they couldn't deny their guilt. They thought the one-off smuggling job would lead to a better life, but instead they were sentenced to 30 years in the world's deadliest prison system, ending up in Yare. This is the gripping true-life story of how two men endured untold savagery. It's about what it's like to witness murder and rape every day. How it feels to eat dead rats to survive. And, what you do when you are trapped at the centre of a machine-gun riot. As seen on Channel 5's Banged Up Abroad, this is the most shocking prison story ever told.
