The hero of Around the World in Eighty Cemeteries is back in this book to tell his latest trip around the world visiting the most important prisons that can be visited today, many of them now tourist landmarks. Alcatraz, Reading Gaol, Ushuaia and Devil’s Island are some of the prisons you will get to know.
What does the Eiffel Tower have to do with Alcatraz? Was a bird dog really condemned to life imprisonment in Philadelphia? Who was a matchmaker in the Black Palace of Lecumberri? Where was Jesus imprisoned before his crucifixion?
