Publisher's Summary

A Prayer Before Dawn is the true story of one man's fight to survive inside Klong Prem prison, the notorious Bangkok Hilton. Billy Moore traveled to Thailand to escape a life of drug addiction and alcoholism. He managed to overcome his inner demons for a time but relapsed after trying ya ba, a highly addictive form of methamphetamine. Moore's life quickly descended into chaos, drug dealing, and violence until he was eventually arrested and imprisoned in Klong Prem, a place where life has no value.
A Prayer Before Dawn is no ordinary prison memoir; it's the story of one man's struggle to survive in one of the world's toughest prisons. It's also a story of redemption in the most unlikely of places.

Fascinating Tale

Really an incredible tale. I appreciated Billy's ability to look at himself and really understand his addiction and his choices. He did not offer any grand conclusion just his experiences and they were worth telling. It was hard to hear some of the human rights abuses but it is important for the world to consider. Are drug offenses worthy of taking away someone's freedom and dignity? Will it cure their addiction. I would suggest that there are better answers to these questions then prison.
