STRANGEWAYS: A PRISON OFFICER'S STORY

Synopsis

Neil ‘Sam’ Samworth spent eleven years working as a prison officer in HMP Manchester, aka Strangeways. He had to deal with it all – gangsters, terrorists and psychopaths, addicts and the mentally ill. Men who should not be locked up and men who should never be let out. This is his shocking and at times darkly funny account of life in a high security prison.
