Publisher's Summary

An unprecedented spate of murders in the 1990s earned Goulburn Jail the ominous name 'The Killing Fields'. Inmates sentenced or transferred to the 130-year-old towering menace declared they had been given death sentences.
Serial killer Ivan Milat, the 'Terror Five' militants who plotted attacks across Sydney in 2005, Brothers 4 Life founder Bassam Hamzy and gang rapist Bilal Skaf are just a few of the inmates inside Australia's most murderous prison. Meet them all here in Phelps' best-selling audiobook.

Revealing look inside NSW prisons

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

An eye opener to the extent of power inmates, who are incarcerated for serious crimes, are able to continue their criminal activities from behind bars

What three words best describe Stan Pretty’s performance?

The juvenile sound effects were annoying and not very convincing. A little more effort given to the accurate pronunciations of the foreign surnames would have given Pretty more credibility.

If you could give Australia's Most Murderous Prison a new subtitle, what would it be?

How the Nagle Royal Commision ensured that prison inmates continue their criminal enterprises from behind bars. A direct result of a one sided investigation where the only witnesses called to give evidence to events inside NSW prisons were inmates.

Any additional comments?

The abrupt ending to the story was somewhat disconcerting. A representation of a prison murder ended suddenly without even an epilogue.

Couldn't put it down

Very interesting and informative. Gods to hear stories from various perspectives. It was well read and fast paced so never a dull moment.

A bit gory at times but otherwise a good read.
