Publisher's Summary

James Keene had it all: cars, girls, houses up and down the Gold Coast. But behind his well-connected star athlete façade was a money-obsessed drug dealer desperate to make the big score to get him out of the business. When he was sentenced to prison, it seemed the only lessons he would learn would be about navigating convict society. Instead, he was offered a chance to regain his freedom in return for going undercover in the nation's highest security prison for the criminally insane. His task: to get friendly with Larry Hall, a mentally unbalanced serial rapist and murderer, and obtain his confession. For nearly a year, Keene walked the line between the part he played and the self he hoped to redeem, all the while dodging punches from deranged inmates, currying favor with imprisoned Mafia dons, and staying beneath the radar of Larry's oddly protective psychiatrist.

Excellent!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's a fascinating true story that kept me gripped throughout. Going in I thought I may be frustrated to be hearing more about James Keene and less about the Larry Hall case but Keene cuts a charming figure and you're soon with him every step of the way.

This is also helped by the excellent narration. Robertson Dean gives each major character a distinct voice and reads with an easy, natural pace rather than the pauseless stream of words that hinder some audiobooks.

Highly recommended.
