Hotel Kerobokan

HOTEL KEROBOKAN is the shocking inside story of the most brutal, corrupt & truly bizzare jail in the world - situated right in the heart of the holiday mecca, Bali. The jail's graying walls touch paradise. Step outside and it's sun-kissed beaches, five star restaurants & luxury hotels. Step inside - and it's hell on earth. This book, written by an Australian journalist with unprecedented access to inside, paints a graphic picture of life in the jail and is not for the faint-hearted. It flirts with dark comedy, but is thick with tragic and shocking stories of tourists and international drug traffickers checked in to Hotel K.

It's a place that's been home to Gordon Ramsay’s drug addict brother, Ronnie Ramsay, Bali King Cok Pemecutan, Australian beauty school student Schapelle Corby, the Bali Nine, English ecstasy dealer Steve Turner as well as unlucky tourists and surfers from across the globe.

JOURNALIST Kathryn Bonella spent a year in Bali, entering the jail every day for months to co-write Schapelle Corby's bestselling 2006 autobiography NO MORE TOMORROWS. Now after hundreds of interviews and two more years of investigation she's telling the incredible story of the jail itself. Backed up by hundreds of interviews with prisoners past and present, as well as jail guards, the truth about HOTEL K explodes off every page.
