Summary Note The real stories behind Gregory Roberts, John Killick and Australia's most daring prison escapes. In his global bestselling novel Shantaram, Gregory Roberts based his fiction on fact. He was once Australia's most wanted man - a prison escapee who went on to live an extraordinary life in India and beyond. John Killick's helicopter escape from Silverwater Jail in 1999 was the most spectacular and daring prison break in Australian history. But what is the truth behind these two legendary men, and the escapes that have become folklore? Mark Dapin, author of the critically acclaimed Public Enemies, has had unprecedented access to Killick himself, numerous former prisoners and associates from as far away as Mumbai, and a wealth of new evidence including ASIO files to help him uncover a hidden criminal world of prison brutality, courage, violence and myth. Prison Break tells the real story behind Australia's most daring prison escapes, and shows that sometimes the truth is more compelling than the myth.
