Life in the Max by Tom Hill
Life in the Max is drawn from over 32 years as a prison officer. Serving at one of only six category A, maximum security prisons in England.
January 1988, a new recruit in Her Majesty’s Prison Service. The highs and lows of a career that many will find funny, shocking, sad, eye opening and thought provoking. Terrorism to tea making. Quoting real life events to illustrate a point. My relationships with both staff and prisoners are openly explored over the pages, some appear regularly as the story progresses. I have had good and bad dealings with many infamous prisoners in high security, they are all laid to bare here. No names have been changed, nothing is invented or dramatized. These events all happened during my time in the ‘Big House’.
