This book will be something that once you have begun to read it, you wont be able to put it down until the end. Compelling and eye opening about a man and the prison system, that he went into battle against.

Dean Wickliffe is a notorious, New Zealand criminal and prison escapee. He is the only person to have escaped Paremoremo Maximum Security Prison, D Block, on two occasions. He is an, 'old school' criminal who fought for prisoner rights while serving a total of more than 41 years behind bars. Never narking on anyone or compromising his code of ethics, to save himself, he earned the respect of prisoners and those who guarded him.

Dean was convicted of murdering, Wellington jeweller, Paul Miet in an armed robbery in 1972.  At retrial, 15 years later the charges were reduced to manslaughter, but his life sentence remained, a decision that Dean could not accept. Dean was released in 1995, but was later found guilty of murdering, gang leader Richard Bluett.  This conviction was quashed in 1998 and he was acquitted at retrial. In April 2010, Dean was sentenced to 2 years and 9 months for drug and firearms offences.  And after being released he again offended and was arrested for the manufacture and possession of methamphetamine for supply and was sentenced to a further 7 years imprisonment. He was paroled, 24 May 2017.
