It was meant to be a two-week holiday to celebrate her sister’s
birthday, but for Schapelle Corby it ended up a waking nightmare.
Arrested at Denpasar airport after marijuana was found in her
luggage, she became the victim of every traveller’s darkest fear.
Over four kilograms of drugs had been planted in her bag after
she’d checked it in and she was forced to face the consequences of
someone else's crime in a country where the penalties for drug
smuggling are among the harshest in the world. Her trial and
conviction became one of the biggest news stories of the decade and
her family watched in horror as she was sentenced to 20 years in
jail. Yet despite the huge media coverage, the one voice the public
never properly heard was Schapelle’s. Now, in this compelling book,
she tells her own story: of being wrenched from a carefree holiday
and incarcerated in a stinking police cell and of learning to
survive – in the squalor, discomfort and violence of an Indonesian
jail. It is an account like no other and will be one of the most
unforgettable books you’ll ever read.
