Isolated in a small cell at Brisbane's maximum-security prison awaiting trial, Joe Tog composed a series of short narratives for his defence-barrister. The purpose was to overcome confusion with the chronology of events leading up to his arrest in far North Queensland. The barrister however commented to his client during the trial, that the notes gave him a clarity that he did not normally get from cold, hard facts and dates. Out of that comment grew this story.Prison Break follows Tog's escape from two Australian prisons as well as his life and travels on the run. Interrogation, incarceration, violence and mate-ship are chronicled in depth to give you an insight into the criminal mind. A true story, with some fiction to protect the guilty, it is sad at times, funny in others but all in all a lesson in life.
These days Joe Tog leads a normal live in Victoria, however his criminal past can never be forgotten. He has spent numerous years in jail as well as many days on the run after escaping from two Australian jails. This book grew from a few short narratives he prepared for his defence barrister while in jail.
