This is a true story of a journey to hell and back.
In 1994 John Hoskison was a highly respected and successful professional golfer. He then shattered his perfect world. One evening he broke a rule of his life by drinking and driving and on the way home he hit and killed a cyclist.
Devastated by his actions Hoskison was thrown into an unimaginable world of remorse and regret. He knew he would never escape the pain he had caused and thought a prison sentence totally justified.
The story grips from the start when Hoskison swaps the safety of green fairways for the medieval squalor of HMP Wandsworth, where drug taking is rife and prison officers can throw victims to the hard men. Only one thing saves Hoskison – forgiveness. In the most incredibly generous gesture the story describes the forgiveness Hoskison receives which acts as a catylist for his survival in the face of adversity.
"This is a must read book. Not just an insight into how prison really is but a real life story that illustrates just how quickly your life can turn upside down. There but for the grace of God..." John Francome, Author and Champion Jockey.
"A journey to hell and back. Entertaining, and 100 times more scary than any drink/drive campaign." FHM Magazine
"Ought to be compulsory reading for all Home Office ministers." Allan Massie - Daily Telegraph
