Struggling against drug addiction, Terry Donaldson had started to make a success of his life, but it wasn't to last. His Jekyll and Hyde lifestyle--TV presenter by day, scouring the streets of London for drugs and prostitutes by night--meant he lost everything, and led him to the point of desperation.
Facing financial ruin, he agreed to smuggle drugs from Barbados, but was caught and sent to one of the world's worst prisons, where he remained for over 3 years. Honest and disturbing, Hell in Barbados is the true story of how Donaldson witnessed stabbings, beatings, shootings and a full scale riot as the prison went up in flames.
In this extraordinary book, he describes the true horror of prison life in the Caribbean, the depravity that brought him there, and the years of brutality he was forced to endure.
Terry Donaldson's story depicts how a drug-addicted smuggler found his salvation in the unlikeliest of places. Told with shocking honesty, Hell in Barbados takes us into the mind of an addict and shows us just how low a man can fall before he finds the strength to save himself.
A memoir of a man serving time in prison in Barbados and his mission to reveal human rights violations to the world.
